There is a rich and fairly well documented history to the invention of the “Frisbee” disc and the creation of the sport of Ultimate. From the Complete Book of Frisbee (1998) to Ultimate the First Four Decades (2005) to, more recently and more humorously, the Ultimate the Greatest Sport Ever Invented by Man (2008) you can find out a lot about our beloved sport (Look for reviews of these books and others in upcoming posts).
Using the above texts and various websites, I created a document that briefly covers the history of the sport, some commonly used terms and how to find further information (books and websites) about the sport. I gave this handout to students who were interested continuing to learn about the sport. Here is the brief document: Handout_WorkShop_W510 .
I hope you enjoy!
