What is Ultimate?

Ultimate was founded in 1968. It is distinguished by its sportsmanship which was originally codified into the sport via “Spirit of the Game” where players expect fiercely competitive play, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors.

Today Ultimate is one of the fastest growing sports in the world with over 5 million people playing in North America. Worldwide the sport is played in over 80 countries. “Spirit” is still a big part of the professional game.

The AUDL is the only sport that has an “Integrity Rule” that allows players to correct a referee’s call if the call was made in error and benefited their team.

The League

The AUDL was founded in 2012 and is made up of 23 teams from the US and Canada. In 2016 the AUDL will play 200 games from April to August, culminating in a final four style championship.

The 2015 Championship was held at Avaya Stadium in San Jose. During the weekend the AUDL raised $750,000 for a variety of amazing charities through the Ultimate Spirit Challenge, an annual disc themed pro-am contest.

Early Recognition is Critical

The Roughnecks are proud to partner with Team ERIC. The owner of the Dallas Roughnecks is also the founder of ERIC – Jim Gerencser. E.R.I.C. is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit that stands for Early Recognition Is Critical.

E.R.I.C. is the official charity of the American Ultimate Disc League (AUDL) and the Dallas Roughnecks. thrilled to have such strong support from the league and help from the players, who promote the sport and E.R.I.C. in school clinics. One of the biggest connections between cancer awareness and ultimate frisbee is self- advocacy.

E.R.I.C. teaches kids they need to speak up in a game if they get fouled, just as they need to speak up, if they notice cancer-related symptoms that we educate them about. ERIC runs clinics for kids, where we actively educate them on a lifestyle that makes early recognition more likely. Click here to find out more. http://www.earlyrecognitioniscritical.org/
