A combination of athletic and sporting disciplines, using a frisbee disc, Ultimate Australia is a unique sport in its ability to be self-refereed high performance manager Dan Rule said this was to foster spirit in the game. 

“Ultimate Frisbee is the world's only self-refereed team sport," he said. 

“Because we have no referees, we have to resolve any disputes between each player involved.

Fouls are discussed with other about what should occur next and what is the most fair outcome. 

“This is basically teaching conflict resolution, good community values and mutual respect between opponents."
