Jared, an instructor and dorm advisor, taught this game to high school student Joel Silver during the summer of 1967 or 1968 at Mount Hermon Prep school summer camp. Joel Silver, along with fellow students Jonny Hines, Buzzy Hellring, and others, developed ultimate beginning in 1968 at Columbia High School, Maplewood, New Jersey, USA (CHS).The first sanctioned game was played at CHS in 1968 between the student council and the student newspaper staff.Rutgers defeated Princeton 29-27 in 1972 in the first intercollegiate game.This game was played exactly 103 years after the first intercollegiate American football game by the same teams at precisely the same site, which had been paved as a parking lot in the interim. Rutgers also won the first ultimate frisbee tournament in 1975, hosted by Yale, with 8 college teams participating.In 2012 there were 5.1 million ultimate players in the United States.Ultimate is played across the world in pickup games and by recreational, school, club, professional, and national teams at various age levels and with open, women's, and mixed divisions.
In 1991 the Ultrastar was specified as the official disc for UPA tournament play and remains in wide use.In January 1977 Wham-O introduced the World Class "80 Mold" 165 gram frisbee.This disc quickly replaced the relatively light and flimsy Master frisbee with much improved stability and consistency of throws even in windy conditions.Players call their own fouls, and dispute a foul only when they genuinely believe it did not occur.Playing without referees is the norm for league play, but has been supplanted in club competition by the use of "observers"/"advisers" to help in disputes, and the professional leagues employ empowered referees.
Throws like the flick and hammer were possible with greater control and accuracy with this sturdier disc.
