Bainbridge Island Ultimate

Bainbridge Island Ultimate (BIU) is a nonprofit sports group organized and run by volunteers, a board, and coaches who are dedicated to teaching and supporting Ultimate frisbee opportunities for current and future high school players. Ultimate is a gender inclusive, multiage, self-officiated sport, known for its unique “Spirit of the Game,” which focuses on sportspersonship and fair play. While competitive play is encouraged, it isn’t at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play. Ultimate teams receive “spirit scores” from opponents, and are rated on characteristics such as kindness, friendliness, fairness, positivity, respect, and enthusiasm. Games often conclude with a “spirit circle,” where teams give each other high-fives and shout-outs in a group setting. Bainbridge Island Ultimate fosters a sense of belonging, self-worth, cooperation, confidence, fun, and camaraderie. At BIU we work to keep this “spirit” alive and well!
