                                              Lesson Plan- Ultimate Frisbee


Focus: backhand and forehand throwing

Sub-focus: technique, target practice, throwing with a partner, sandwich catching, cardio

Performance Objectives:

        1. Cognitive: The students will be able to explain how to properly throw and catch a frisbee. (NASPE Standard 2,
           TEKS 116.24- 2/B)

        2. Affective: Students will be able to not get frustrated if they or a teammate doesn’t use proper throwing during
           the game. (NASPE Standard 5, TEKS 116.22- 7/B)

        3. Psychomotor: Students will be able to demonstrate a proper throw and catch with their partner. (NASPE
           Standard 1, TEKS 116.22 - 1/F, 1/K)

Materials/Equipment: 15 frisbees, 5 frisbee goals, gym, clock

Anticipatory Set : 15 minutes

       Organization/Management: As students come into class they will walk around the perimeter of the basketball
        court looking for a partner. One partner will go get a frisbee and meet their other partner in a spot around the
        perimeter of the basketball court. After putting the frisbee down, have them meet back in the middle of the
        court for further instruction.
       Safety: space out, keep your eyes up, no throwing frisbees, no horseplay.
       Cues: throwing- side to target, pinch with thumb and forefinger, pivot-step-snap/release; sandwich catching-
        watch for disk, one hand on top and one on bottom, hands like a clam, spread fingers
       Warm-up (10 minutes): Cardio/Arm Warm-Up-

            o   Cardio/Arm Warm-Up
                     Students will do forward arm circles for 30 seconds and switch to reverse arm circles.
                     Next, students will line up on the baseline to begin their warm up. They will do each drill to half
                       court and back. After the first student in line begins, the next in line must wait until they reach
                       the free throw line to start. The exercises will include:
                            Lunges (to the free throw line)
                            High knees (legs up and knees to chest)
                            Buttocks kicks (heel to buttocks and quick feet)
                            Karaoke (one step forward and one back)
                            Bounding (get air)
                            Donkey kicks (kick back and eyes up)
                            Jog
                            Sprint
   Transition: Students will go back to their designated spot where they had placed their Frisbee with their partner
    and stand and face the teacher for further instruction.

   Organization/Management: Students will be able to see and hear for instruction, one of the partners moves
    opposite of the other to get ready for the activity.
   Introduction (5 minutes): The focus for this activity is to learn the correct form and execute the correct form of
    using backhand throwing for ultimate Frisbee.
        o Why? Throwing and more importantly correct throwing technique is one of the most important skills to
            have in a game of ultimate Frisbee. It can determine how well the game will be played, and how fast the
            game can be played.
        o We should first review the keys to good backhand throwing.
                 Stance should be a sideways stance.
                 Pinch the disks edge with thumb and forefinger.
                 Make it like your wiping a table with back of hand, keep disk flat.
                 When releasing, release like snapping a towel.
                 Pivot, windup, step, snap, release
                 Stay about 5 feet from the opponent, in order to get a good throw.
                 Should step at the target.
        o So why are the keys important for backhand throwing?
                 The stance is important, so that a student can correctly be able to wind up their arm to throw
                    the Frisbee, because the Frisbee comes inside your body to outside your body on releasing it.
                 With releasing the Frisbee, if correctly released then the Frisbee can go a farther distance as
                    well as go higher.
                 Staying about five feet away from your opponent is helpful in throwing so that you can throw
                    the Frisbee without it getting blocked.

        o   Demonstrate: correct backhand throwing to their partner. Focusing on snapping and releasing the
            Frisbee, not on distance.

   Transition: Students will bring it in at a part of the court. One person holds the Frisbee while standing with his or
    her partner and will wait and listen for further instruction.
   Organization/Management: Students will be gathered, while standing with his or her partner or group, so they
    can hear instructions.
   Introduction (4 minutes): The focus for this point in the lesson is for students to learn sandwich catching. We will
    have had backhand throwing and now the next step is to learn how to catch the frisbee.
        o Why? Students must learn to catch the Frisbee in order to move down the court or field to score, or also
            catch a Frisbee while on defense as well.
        o Giving guided instruction on how to sandwich catch the frisbee.
                  Arms and elbows should be extended when catching.
                  Prior to catching the Frisbee, students should clap his or her hands, to prepare for catch.
                  Students must keep eyes on the Frisbee as it is thrown his or her way.
                  When catching the Frisbee, student should form hands into a “sandwich” or “clam” in order to
                    catch the ball with palms and spread fingers.
                  When Frisbee is caught, student should reset themselves in a position where he or she can
                    perform a backhand throw.
        o Keys to catching the Frisbee:
                     Always have eyes on the target and person who has the Frisbee in their hands.
                     Track the Frisbee with your eyes as it is thrown in your direction.
                     Look the Frisbee in with your eyes and hands as you proceed to catch the frisbee.
                     As you look the Frisbee in, clap your hands to ready yourself for the catch and secure it using
                     your spread fingers and palms as they form a “sandwich” or “clam” shape.
           o   Demonstrate: Proper catching technique when making a sandwich catch with the frisbee.

      Transition: The partner that did not retrieve the Frisbee at the beginning then needs to go get a jersey to put on
       for the game. This will equally divide the class, and the team with the jersey will go to one side of the court
       while the team without will stand on the other. They will then wait for further instruction on how to play the

      Lead-up Game: Ultimate Frisbee

           o   Students are divided into two teams of equal players.
           o   Once students are divided, give one team a jersey to wear.
           o   Each team is on opposite sides of the gym. This is the opposite teams goal line.
           o   For kickoff, one team starts with the Frisbee and throws it to the opposite team where they receive it
               and start the game.
           o   The person who receives the Frisbee now starts the game by passing it to a teammate, and then
           o   If the Frisbee becomes a “fumble” then it is dead and the other team now has the Frisbee and passes to
               one of their teammates and continues until they can score.
           o   Out of bounds is outside the basketball court.
           o   When a student scores the teams go back to their lines and then rotates other students into the game
               so everyone has a chance to play.
           o   If students don’t score regularly then rotate every 2 minutes, or every time the Frisbee goes out of

Closure: 10 minutes

          Static Stretching: Down to the right, down to the left, down to the middle, legs together straight down,
           knees to chest, foot to buttocks, and butterfly. Hold each stretch for at 15 seconds.

          Bring the students in to check understanding.
               o Ask students to name good cues for throwing a frisbee.
               o Ask students to demonstrate how to properly catch a Frisbee and the correct name for it.
               o Ask students why it is important to use two hands to catch the Frisbee.
               o Ask students why it is important to be able to throw and catch a Frisbee properly.
