The JCC Maccabi Games Ultimate tournament is being talked about in a variety of cities were Ultimate is a “hot” sport such as Baltimore, East Bay and even our own backyard – Atlanta, home of the Atlanta Hustle and the Flying Disc Club.

We on the Games Staff think Ultimate is an amazing sport, but don’t just take our word for it – check out some of these historic plays and top reasons on why you should play Ultimate!

Top Reasons to Play Ultimate

  1. It’s a mix of all the greatest sports! (Soccer- cutting and defensive strategy, Track & Field – sprinting and jumping, Football – play calling and Frisbee movement, Basketball – Blocking and defense man to man)
  2. It can be played for recreation or competitively.  There are different levels for everyone that is interested!
  3. It keeps you active and in shape.  The games are fast paced, but easy to pick up and is a total adrenaline pump!
  4. It’s simply fun and exciting!  Never a dull moment on the field 🙂
