What Is USA Ultimate?
USA Ultimate is a disc non contact sport played by teams of seven players. The object of the game is to score goals; To score those goals a player must catch a legal pass in the end zone that the player is attacking. A player must not run while holding the disc which can be moved down the field by passing in any direct. If a pass to another player is incomplete a turn over happens which means the other team are now in possession. A interested part about the game is the players self officiate the game based on the spirit and rules of the game.

Huntington Beach has a long history with disc golf at Central Park its nice to see tournaments that are a little different than the normal ones seen in Huntington Beach such as surfing, skating and beach volleyball.
