Ultimate is a non-contact sport that combines the endurance of soccer with the passing and catching skills of football. A game of ultimate is played with a flying disc by two teams of 7 players on a field with end zones, similar to football. The object of the game is to catch a pass in the opponent’s end zone. After catching the disc, a player must stop running and pass to any of their teammates on the field. Players switch from offense to defense on turnovers that occur with a dropped pass, an interception, or a pass out of bounds.
The Westborough Ultimate program started in 2011 and now consists of two co-ed teams - a Middle School team for boys and girls in grades 5-8, and a High School team for boys and girls in grades 9-12. Beginners are welcome on both teams.
Practices consist of skills development, followed by a fun scrimmage. During the season, the high school team plays games against other local schools and attends the state championship in the Spring, while the middle school team attends two local half-day tournaments.
We are actively seeking assistant coaches for our teams - Please contact the Recreation Department if interested in volunteering!
