                             TEAM SPORT UNIT PLAN

Teacher: Shawn Chatburn
Team Sport: Ultimate Frisbee

SECTION A. (Overview)
Background Information
Number and duration of classes: 10 classes of 40 minutes each
Number of students: 25-30
Grade level: 9/10

Entry Level Assessment of Learner
Age: 14-16 years old

General abilities/skill proficiency level: Utilization Level (Intermediate)

      The movement becomes more automatic and can be performed successfully with
       concentration
      Even when the context of the task is varied (slightly at first), the student can still perform the
       movement successfully
      The student has developed control of the skill in predictable situations and is beginning to
       move skillfully in unpredictable situations. The student can execute the skill the same way
       constantly
      The student can use the skill in combination with other skills and still perform it appropriately


Previous experience in this type of activity: The students will have the motor pattern development
to be successful in this activity. The students have already been introduced to the game Ultimate
Frisbee in their past Physical Education classes. The students will have a basic understanding and
knowledge of the different strategies needed for Ultimate Frisbee. The students will build on the
knowledge they already have and develop their skills further.

Rationale (importance of unit): The students will develop and strengthen their motor skills for
running, throwing, and catching. The students will acquire cognitive aspects of Ultimate Frisbee.
These aspects will be the rules and regulations for Ultimate Frisbee. Students practice working on a
team, encouraging each other, and good sportsmanship.

Anticipated difficulties and how they will be addressed: Every student has different skill levels for
Ultimate Frisbee. The females in the class may not be as involved in the game as the males. To
prevent this the teacher may implement a rule that requires team to pass to one female before
scoring. The less skilled students may receive additional help and support from the teacher and other
classmates. Safety may be the biggest difficulty of all. Making sure the students are always aware of
their surroundings, rules, and regulations can be a way to increase safety. Repeatedly stressing
safety is a must for the teacher.

SECTION B. (Standards, Objectives:)
Big Idea (Unit Goal): The ultimate goal is to have every student feel, as they are a part of their team
and contributed to its success. Students will play role of manager, equipment manger, etc, to help
their sports education team perform best at the end of the unit. Every student will have a role on their
team to prepare them for the tournament at the end of the unit.

SECTION C. (Learning Experiences) (use † section if using TGFU model)

Unit Fitness Activities:

Muscular Fitness
Lower Body Exercises:

Squats: Students begin squat exercise by placing their frisbee in their hands, their arms fully
extended outward, just below their shoulder level. Students position their feet so that they are
shoulder length apart, toes should point in the same direction as student's knees. Student lowers their
body with the frisbee in his/her hand, concentrating on keeping their back perfectly straight. Student
continues their upward and downward movement phase with a 3-4 count motion, with 10 repetions
each time.

Lunge: Students begin lunges by placing their feet shoulder width apart with toes pointing forward.
Students keep their upper body erect, head facing forward, arms extended forward, while holding the
frisbee in front of themselves, hands on opposite sides of the frisbee. Students start with right foot,
taking a large step forward while keeping their left foot in place. Once the right foot is firmly on the
floor, students lower their upper bodies by bending at the right knee. After students have done 5
repetitions going down on the right knee, students will proceed by doing 5 repetitions on the left knee
in a 3-4 count going down and up.

Core Exercises:

Abdominal Crunches: Students perform abdominal workout by lying on their backs. Students extend
their arms over their head, while holding on to their frisbee. In a circular motion, students will bring
frisbee over student's head and touch their knees with their frisbee. Students perform 20 repetitions of
these frisbee crunches.

Russian Twists(Side Ab Twists): Students perform abdominal twists by sitting on their bottoms.
Students hold the frisbee, placing their hands at opposite ends of the frisbee; while their legs are fully
extended fully outward. Students work obliques (side abdominals) by moving the frisbee to each side
of his or her body, while student's leg are kept elevated, and not touching the ground.

Upper Body Exercises:

Push Ups: Students perform push ups by balancing their weight on both their arms and legs in a lifted
position. Students place frisbee on the gymnasium floor, just underneath student‟s chest, which will
act as a placement guide for standard push-ups, each time going all the way down so that the
student's chest hits their frisbee. Students accomplish this task with 10 repetitions.
Shoulder Flies: Students perform shoulder flies lying down on the gymnasium floor, with a partner
holding and pressing down on the active student's frisbee, in order to add some resistance to the
student's chest.



Cardiovascular
Activity 1. Working on the cardiovascular system will be the first fitness component for Frisbee. The
activity will have the students start off in their sports education groups. These groups will stand in a
line on one baseline, facing the other baseline, about 20 feet apart from the other groups. Each team
will have a frisbee. One student will hold the frisbee and act as a thrower. Another student will act as
a receiver. On „ready go‟ the receiver will sprint to the cone and the thrower will toss them the frisbee.
The receiver will bring back the frisbee and the next person in line will become the thrower and the
thrower will become the receiver. This will go on for about 3 min

Activity 2. The next part of the activity will have the student add a defender. This defender will not
touch the frisbee but will only act as a distraction for the thrower and the receiver. This will cause the
receiver to us moves such as head fakes, stutter steps, and jukes to get open. This activity will have
the players rotate from thrower to receiver to defender to back of the line. This activity should last 3
minutes.



Flexibility
After the students complete the cardiovascular endurance portion of the warm-up, they will begin
stretching. Dynamic stretching will target every muscle used during ultimate frisbee play. Tell the
students to find their own personal space within the sidelines of the gymnasium and lay their frisbee
safely on the ground. 1. Standing shoulder width apart, tell the students to roll their heads slowly, five
times to the left followed by five times to the right. 2. Next, tell the students to pick up their frsbee and
hold it in backhand position with one hand. Extend arms out to the side for 10 large forward arm
circles and 10 large backward arm circles. 3. Keeping the frisbee in one hand, extend arms back out
laterally, swing arms in a horizontal motion back and forth, each time the frisbee hand alternating
from above and below the non-frisbee hand, 5 times each. 4. Now tell the students to place the
frisbee behind their backs and hold it with both hands, thumb underneath. Keeping the elbows
straight, tell the students to lift the frisbee as high as they can behind their back and hold the stretch
for 10 seconds. 5. When finished tell the students to place the frisbee on the floor. Extend straight
arms in front of the body, and tell the students to use their right hand to pull their fingers back toward
their body with the left hand, hold for 10 seconds. Repeat with the left hand. 6. Our final upper
extremity stretch, tell the students to interlock their fingers, then extend their arms forward while
turning the palms out 7. Moving down the body, tell the students to maintain their legs shoulder width
apart and trunk twist from side to side 5 times each. 8. Now, targeting the lower limb muscles, tell the
students to hold out the frisbee with their right hand and swing their right front to back 5 times aiming
for the frisbee. They must repeat this with the left leg as well. 9. Tell the students to stand with feet
together and step into a side squat with the left leg and then the right 5 times each while extending
the arms foward holding the frisbee each time. 10. Finally, keeping the frisbee in hand, demonstrate
for them how to use a short backhand toss to move the frisbee into an empty space. Tell the
students they must face where the frisbee landed and perform the inchworm until they have reached
the frisbee. To accomplish the inchworm, tell the students to place their hands on the floor while
maintaining straight arms and legs, walk them out into a push-up position keeping their feet still, then
keeping their hands still walk their straight legs back into their hands, stretching their hamstring
muscles.




Performance Fitness
1) Cardiovascular Endurance- Tell students to find a partner. Each set of partners will have one
Frisbee between the two of them. Have students face each other at one end of the gym while one
student is holding the Frisbee. Tell students that they will begin the exercise by doing a shuffling
maneuver down to the other end of the gym, while still facing one another and passing the Frisbee
back and forth to each other. Have students will be at close proximity from one another to allow for
easy passing. Once a pair of students reaches the other end of the gym, have them keep passing the
Frisbee to one another and will shuffle back. Have students repeat the sequence but use a karaoke
step the second time around. Once the students return to the starting line, tell one student from each
pair to grab the Frisbee and do butt kicks down to the far end of the gym and back. Once the first
student returns, tell their partner will do the same. Have each pair continue this sequence but with a
different exercise each time. The second time around have students do high-knees from one end of
the gym to the other, and the third time around have them sprint up and back. (Only students who are
holding the Frisbee may be moving from one end of the gym to the other.)

2) Tell students that they will be doing a series of cardiovascular activities around the gymnasium. Set
up five stations in different areas of the gym. Tell students to get into groups of 5 or 6 and place each
group at a station. At station one, have students perform jumping jacks while short toss a Frisbee to
their partners. At station two have students do squat thrusts while short tossing a Frisbee. At station
three have students jog in place while short tossing a Frisbee. At station four ave students stand in a
circle and pass one Frisbee around to their teammates. Once the Frisbee leaves a student‟s hand tell
them to do one squat thrust, stand up and wait for the Frisbee to be tossed to them. At station five
have students do the same as station four but have them do jumping jacks in between throws. At the
sound of the whistle have students stop the activity they are working on and move to the next station.
(The station that has a higher number then the one they are at). Continue the activity until all students
have performed at each station.

Day 1. Focus: Rules and Regulations of Ultimate Frisbee
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Flexibility (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): Using a powerpoint presentation the teacher will go over
   the rules and regulation from the game Ultimate Frisbee.
Skill Development Activities: Cooperative learning on the rules and regulations.
Culminating Activity: Students will complete a twenty-question quiz on the rules and regulations of
   Ultimate Frisbee with a partner.
Closure: Teacher will go over quiz with class and review rules and regulations.
Day 2. Focus: Throwing the Frisbee (backhand and forehand)
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Cardiovascular (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): The teacher will demonstrate and explain the different
   throws (backhand and forehand). Students will then partner up and practice both throws,
   increasing distance between them until comfortable.
Skill Development Activities: Students will get into their sports education groups and take turns
   throwing the Frisbee and different targets on the wall. The students will use the different throws
   learned (backhand and forehand). There will be three targets and the students will get four tries at
   each target for a total of twelve throws per student.
Culminating Activity: The students will participate in a modified Ultimate Frisbee game. The
   students must use both the forehand and backhand throws before scoring.
Closure: Teacher will review the different throws and answer any students questions on the different
throws.
Day 3. Focus: Catching the Frisbee using the “C” and “Sandwich” style catch.
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Muscular Fitness (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): The teacher will explain and demonstrate the “c” and
   “sandwich” catches. The students will then partner up and practice the two different catches.
Skill Development Activities: Students will get into their sports education groups. Each group will
   line up into a straight line with the second person in line holding the Frisbee. The first person in
   each line will run out to the cone in front of them. The person with the Frisbee will yell out a type of
   Frisbee catch and the partner will have to demonstrate it. The thrower now becomes the catcher
   and the catcher jogs back to the line handing off the Frisbee the new thrower.
Culminating Activity: The students will participate in a modified game of Ultimate Frisbee. The
   students must use both the “c” catch and the “sandwich” catch before scoring.
Closure: The teacher will review the different catches and answer any questions the students have
on the two catches.
Day 4. Focus: Running Proper Patterns using correct form.
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Flexibility (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): The teacher will explain and demonstrate three basic
   receiver patterns for Ultimate Frisbee. The three patterns are the fly, post, and slant.
Skill Development Activities: The students will get into their sports education groups and practice
   these patterns. There will be a thrower and a receiver. The rotation will have the thrower become
   the receiver and the receiver will go to the end of the line. Cones will be used to help the students
   acknowledge where to make proper cuts for the receiver patterns. The thrower will decide which
   pattern the receiver will run.
Culminating Activity: The students will participate in a modified game of Ultimate Frisbee. The
   teams will use the patterns learned in today‟s lesson to successfully complete a pass.
Closure: Teacher will review the different running patterns, answering any questions the students
have.
Day 5. Focus: Endurance
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Cardiovascular (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): Students will partner up and follow their partners around
   the gymnasium in close proximity. The partner igniting the movements will move fast/slow, side to
   side, and forwards and backwards while their partner follows their every movement. After about
   five minutes the partners will switch roles. Each student will perform each role twice.
Skill Development Activities: The teacher will partner up students into pairs up two. Each pair will
   have a ten foot piece of bungee cord tied to both partner‟s arms. One student will be on offensive
   and the other student will be on defense. When the music starts the object of the game is for the
   offensive team mate to separate as much distance as possible between them and their partner.
   The teammate of defense is to stay as close as possible to their partner so that the cord never
   becomes stretched. Each student will have thirty seconds or until the music stops to accomplish
   their goal. Partners will keep switching roles every thirty seconds.
Culminating Activity: The students will participate in a modified game of Ultimate Frisbee where the
   students participating will be evenly matched up with a player on the other team. These players
   will be guarding each other throughout the game. This will help them practice their mirroring skills.
Closure: Teacher will review the mirroring skill and answer any questions that the students may
have.
Day 6. Focus: Defense (intercepting and knock-downs)
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Muscular Fitness (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): The teacher will demonstrate and explain how to intercept
   and knock down the Frisbee while on defense. Students will get into groups of three and practice
   the techniques. The group will run different patterns but the offensive player will not play
   aggressively. The group will rotate after one throw.
Skill Development Activities: Students will be in the same groups doing the same activity with a few
   exceptions. The first exception is that the defensive player will not know this time what route the
   receiver will be running. The other exception is that the offensive players will also be trying to
   make a play on the Frisbee. These two variations really make the activity a game-like situation.
Culminating Activity: The students will participate in a modified game of Ultimate Frisbee, This
   game will have one team on steady offense and one team steady on defense. The defensive team
   will have an extra 3 players. This will allow the skills learned to be used in actual game play. The
   teams will switch after 10 plays.
Closure: Teacher will review the intercepting and knockdown skills and answer any questions that
the students may have.
Day 7. Focus: Teambuilding
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Flexibility (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): Students will get together and pick teams fro Ultimate
   Frisbee. There will be five teams with 5-6 players per team. Teacher will make sure teams are
   evenly matched in skill level to prevent students from becoming uninterested in the games. Teams
   will also pick a team name and a captain to further implement a real life game situation.
Skill Development Activities: Teams will get together and develop a strategy for their team. The
   teams will practice the different skills learned so far and give out different roles for each member of
   the team. Getting comfortable with your team is the idea here.
Culminating Activity: Exhibition games of Ultimate Frisbee for each team.
Closure: Teacher will review the games and finalize any thoughts or questions that the students may
have.
Day 8. Focus: Strategy
Opening Activity: Students will practice basic throwing and catching the Frisbee with a partner.
Fitness Activity: Cardiovascular (see above)
Lead up game/Activity (Tactical Model): Teacher will explain to students how to use strategy to be
   successful in a game of Ultimate Frisbee. Examples would be how to throw the Frisbee depending
   on the situation and how to play defensive also depending on game situations. Teacher will then
   place teams against each other and set up game like situations and inform students the best
   choices to make in that particular situation. Students may ask questions and set up situations that
   they may have questions about.
Skill Development Activities: Students will divide into their groups for some strategizing. Here the
   students will develop some feel for their team and prepare for the exhibition game.
Culminating Activity: Exhibition games of Ultimate Frisbee for each team. The teacher will explain
   that this is the last day that the students have to work on their team development and fix any
   weaknesses.
