dc.descriptionIn 1968 students at Columbia High School in Maplewood, New Jersey created a new sport they called Ultimate Frisbee. These students wanted to combine the fun of playing Frisbee with the challenge of conventional competitive sports like football and soccer. The new sport became a local success with Columbia graduates taking it with them to their respective colleges. The first intercollegiate match was held in 1972 between Rutgers and Princeton. By 1975, around 25 college Ultimate teams had been organized leading to the first intercollegiate championship. The sport continued to spread with a national championship being held in 1977. In 1979, the Ultimate Player’s Association (UPA) was formed to organize, promote and direct the sport of Ultimate. Today, Ultimate is an international sport enjoyed in more than 80 countries. It is played by an estimated seven million people. There are college teams, high school teams, local clubs and youth teams that participate. Although Ultimate is not recognized as an Olympic sport it is part of the World Games. Ultimate first came to UW-Stout in 1980 with the formation of the Frisbee club the Discateers. In 1996, the Yetis were organized. The Yetis are the current Ultimate Frisbee Club found on UW-Stout. The co-ed team sponsors and attends Ultimate tournaments.en_US
