Ultimate is a fast paced team sport played with a frisbee. A team scores when their player catches the disc in the opposing team’s end zone. You can not move with the disc. There’s no physical contact allowed. There are also no referees, so the players call possible fouls themselves. Therefore, the Spirit of the Game and respect are a very important part of this sport.

Course payment is 5€ (payment with cash in the first meeting) which includes Tamkon Letut membership for the spring season 2019. Please notice that you also have to pay the SportUni fee. You will need indoor sport shoes, a water bottle and comfortable sportswear.

Please sign up via e-mail: tamkonletut(at)gmail.com. Sign up anyway even if you cannot make it to the first lesson. More info about the sport can be found from at ultimate.fi.
