Activities - ConnJam Ultimate Frisbee Tournament Posted Apr. 10, 2018
Troops & Crews: Get Your Ultimate Team in place for ConnJam!
ConnJam Ultimate Frisbee Tournament
Saturday, May 12 at ConnJam

Ultimate is a fun, fast-paced team sport that combines the nonstop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football using a flying disc. Ultimate relies on sportsmanship, invoking the "Spirit of the Game" to maintain fair play. The honor system works in ultimate, just like in Scouting. Typically, there are no officials. Players are responsible for playing fair, calling their own fouls, and making their own out-of-bounds calls. Join us for a USA ULTIMATE approved tournament. We’re setting this up as a youth run event. Click more information to sign up a team.
