Fun with Frisbees
The frisbee is an age-old classic that will always be fun and it is super active too.
Here are a few simple fun Frisbee Games that you can play with your family.
Insert two sticks of similar size into the ground approximately 20 paces apart. Each player stands behind one of the sticks. Take it in turns throw the disc at the stick.
- 5 points are awarded for each direct hit
- 1 points is scored for catches made from a missed throw – these must be behind the stick
Players must not put any part of their body in front of the stick to defend it.
Players pass the disc to each other, but instead of throwing the disc directly to the player, passes are made into space so that the receiver must move their feet to make a catch. This simple ‘passy’ fun Frisbee game can involves running, and if you’re playing on the beach, some diving too!
Complete as many passes as you can within a time limit. Use a stopwatch to time you, for 2 or 3 minutes and see how many catches you can make as a team. You get 2 points for 2 handed catches and 3 points for 1 handed catches. You get 5 bonus points for no drops!
If you get into the zone, have a go at some catches behind the back and under the legs – you get 5 points for these!
Playing throw and catch around, under and over obstacles is one of the best ways to practice curves and air-bouncers. Look for ‘passing lanes’ along woodland paths. One of the best types of tree to ‘cruise’ among is the Scots Pine. Their great height and lack of branches below 20m make them ideal, plus the ground tends to be firm and free from too much vegetation.
