Santa Barbara Youth Ultimate

In Santa Barbara, we are lucky to have an incredibly rich history of excellence when it comes to Ultimate. In 2017, we founded Santa Barbara Youth Ultimate, where we invest our time and energy into developing first-time, youth players in the greater-Santa Barbara area. As the programming grows, we will continue to develop opportunities for all skill-levels at the youth level.


About Ultimate





Combining the non-stop movement and athletic endurance of soccer with the aerial passing skills of football, a game of Ultimate is played by two seven-player squads with a high-tech plastic disc on a field similar to football. The object of the game is to score by catching a pass in the opponent’s end zone.

Ultimate is a transition game in which players move quickly from offense to defense on turnovers (similar to basketball). Ultimate is governed by Spirit of the Game™ -- a tradition of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the players rather than referees.
