Lesson Plan: Ultimate Frisbee



Lesson Plan: Ultimate Frisbee Session


Objective: To introduce students to the basic skills and rules of Ultimate Frisbee and promote teamwork, communication, and physical fitness.


Equipment Needed:

  • Cones or markers for field boundaries

  • Frisbees

  • Stopwatch or timer

Warm-up (10 minutes):

  1. Start with a light jog around the field to warm up the muscles.

  2. Follow with dynamic stretches, including arm circles, lunges, high knees, and toe touches.

  3. Finish the warm-up with a brief game of Frisbee tag, where students pass the Frisbee to tag others.

Introduction to Ultimate Frisbee (10 minutes):

  1. Gather students in a circle and briefly explain the basic rules and objectives of Ultimate Frisbee.

    • Explain that the objective is to score points by passing the Frisbee to teammates in the opposing team's end zone.

    • Emphasize fair play, sportsmanship, and the spirit of the game.

    • Discuss the basic rules, such as no running with the Frisbee, no physical contact, and turnovers when the Frisbee hits the ground.

    • Introduce terms such as "pull," "force," "cutting," and "end zone."


  1. Demonstrate proper throwing and catching techniques, including backhand and forehand throws, and emphasize the importance of communication.

Skill Development (20 minutes):

  1. Divide the class into two teams and assign positions (e.g., handlers and cutters) to ensure equal participation.

  2. Set up a field using cones or markers to establish boundaries.

  3. Practice throwing and catching skills in pairs or small groups, focusing on accuracy and communication.

    • Have students throw short and long passes to their partners, alternating between backhand and forehand throws.

    • Encourage communication between throwers and receivers to improve timing and positioning.


  1. Rotate partners and allow students to practice different roles and positions.

Game Play (15 minutes):

  1. Divide the class into two or more teams, depending on class size and available space.

  2. Set up a small-sided game (e.g., 5 vs. 5) on a designated field.

  3. Enforce the basic rules discussed earlier, encouraging fair play and adherence to the spirit of the game.

  4. Emphasize teamwork, communication, and strategic play rather than individual performance.

  5. Play multiple short games to allow students to practice their skills and experience different game situations.

Cool-down and Reflection (5 minutes):

  1. Lead students through a cool-down routine, including static stretches for the major muscle groups used during the session.

  2. Gather students in a circle and discuss their experiences and observations during the session.

    • Ask students about their strengths, challenges, and strategies they employed during the games.

    • Encourage students to reflect on how teamwork and communication contributed to their success.


Note: Adjust the duration of each activity based on the available class time and the skill level of the students. Also, ensure the safety of the students by providing clear instructions and monitoring the game play closely.
