What we're about

** REGARDING COVID-19 (July 6, 2020 update for this group)**

Due to the uptick in cases in New Jersey, at least for now, we are going to continue not playing Ultimate in its usual format. We will continue playing throw/catch, DDC, disc golf, etc. More updates to follow as conditions warrant.

**REGARDING COVID-19. (June 17, 2020 update for this group.)**

**Folks here is the plan going forward. We are going to start our regular Tuesday/Sunday Meetups starting Tuesday July 23. However, according to the governor's executive order, it is still forbidden to play sports that involve regular person-to-person contact and where social distancing is not possible. Therefore, at least for the foreseeable future, we will not be playing Ultimate in its usual format. Instead, we will be playing disc sports where social distancing can be maintained. This may involve double disc court (a lot of fun, look it up), golf, throw/catch, self-caught flight, or the like. We will reevaluate around July 6 when the governor is allowing regular sports to begin.

We will be sending out questionnaires to the folks who rsvp. We need to keep this safe. If you have been exposed to anyone positive for Covid, or even think you might have been, DO NOT COME. If you are sick, DO NOT COME. If you are running a fever, DO NOT COME. We are asking everyone to bring hand wipes or hand sanitizer for their own use, and to bring your own discs and equipment.

Again, this is a fluid situation, so we will reevaluate as events warrant.**

We're just a casual group of people who love the game of Ultimate Frisbee. All skill levels are welcome as long as you promise to have fun! We play twice a week. On Tuesday evenings, excluding the winter, we play at Donaldson Park in Highland Park. On Sunday mornings, the game is at Albert Avenue Park in Milltown, year round, so long as there is interest.

Our policy is that the game is on if there are 10 or more rsvp's. Therefore, we request that you rsvp for the game if you are coming, so that we know if we have enough. Likewise, if your plans change, please update your rsvp. If there are not 10 rsvp's 90 minutes before game time, the Meetup will be canceled.

There is no fee to attend the games. We ask for a small optional donation ($1 or $2) to defray the cost of running this Meetup group.

For any beginners, please read the following 10 rules to Ultimate. If you have any other questions, feel free to ask! :)

Ultimate in 10 Simple Rules

1. The Field -- A rectangular shape with endzones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by 40 yards, with endzones 25 yards deep.

2. Initiate Play -- Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective endzone line. The defense throws ("pulls") the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

3. Scoring -- Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's endzone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.

4. Movement of the Disc -- The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the disc ("thrower") has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender guarding the thrower ("marker") counts out the stall count.

5. Change of possession -- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.

6. Substitutions -- Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury timeout.

7. Non-contact -- No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.

8. Fouls -- When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs. When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees with the foul call, the play is redone.

9. Self-Refereeing -- Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.

10. Spirit of the Game -- Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.
