Ultimate is a non-contact field sport played by two teams comprised of seven players. A flying disc, made of plastic, is passed around the field. Points are scored by passing the disc to a team member who is position inside the opposing team’s endzone. Players are not allowed to take steps while holding the disc, and incomplete passes and passes out of bounds cause a turnover. At all levels of play, ultimate emphasizes a "spirit of the game" based on sportsmanship and friendly competition. Except at elite competitions, in which sideline officials call some fouls, there are no officials and players self-referee and resolve disputes themselves.
