Okay, so you’ve clearly already been converted. You’ve played in several Ultimate Frisbee games and realized that this is the greatest joy that life can bring. However, without a solid crew of at least 10 people, it can be hard to get a good Ultimate game going, no matter how much you love the game. This is one of the challenges posed by team sports. You need to get adequate numbers of participants involved to keep the game interesting. Well, here are some tips to help get people out to the game, and actually have them enjoy doing it.
Tell people about how fun Ultimate Frisbee can be. Many people are generally shy about competitive sports because they lack confidence in their athletic abilities. But, if you tell them about how fun and carefree an Ultimate game can be, they will surely enjoy the sport just as much as any other. Additionally, tell them how important exercise can be and how it will make them healthy!
Another thing to stress is that this game helps get people outside and into the sun. Instead of being cooped up all day in front of a computer or television screen, they can head outside and make friends.
Another great tip for getting enough people for an Ultimate Frisbee game is to invite a bunch of girls. Not only does the presence of ladies attract all sorts of people, but a fun and exciting game of Ultimate will surely put everyone in the right mood to have a good time.
Getting other people motivated and excited about a new thing can be a major challenge, but the important thing is to find people that you are close to and love the sport as much as you do. If you can corral 4 or 5 really diehard Ultimate players, then you each only need to bring along 1 friend to turn the game into a fun match. The other wonderful thing about this game is that there is no finite limit to the amount of people that can play. So, if you are able to corral 20 or 30 people to a single Ultimate match, it can be a real fun battle.
Sports are about camaraderie as much as the game itself, so try to build valuable relationships with people and make friends. When you can have a good group of people around, inviting them to a game of Ultimate shouldn’t be a challenge. Also, try to engage in what other people want to do. Don’t just invite people to your gatherings; go to their functions as well. This will create a harmonious relationship. Just like Ultimate players like to receive passes as well as toss them, friendships are best when there is a 2-way street.
So what are you waiting for? Call up some friends and organize an Ultimate Frisbee match today! There’s really no reason to wait, as this sport is one of the most wonderful games ever invented and people will surely get up to come hang out and partake!
