Guts Frisbee™ is a high-speed sport in which players try to throw the disc so fast, or with so much movement, that members of the opposing team—lined up fingertip to fingertip 14 meters (15 yards, 11 inches) away—cannot catch it cleanly with one hand. Teams take turns throwing and catching. With speeds hitting over 80 mph, players can have less than one third of a second to react.
The disc must be thrown from behind the throwing team’s line and arrive at the catching team’s line right-side-up and within reach. It can be caught on first impact or after being deflected among teammates. If the disc touches the ground or is touched simultaneously by more than one body part (trapped), the throwing team scores a point. If the disc is caught, no point is scored. If the disc is thrown high, low, or wide—or arrives vertical or upside-down—the receiving team scores a point.
The player who catches the disc—or was hit first by it if the disc isn’t caught—throws it back. On the first throw of the game, or following a bad throw or foot fault, the team with the disc can choose their best player to make the next throw. Games are played to 21 points with a 2-point margin needed for victory.
Over the past 58 years, the intense, “original extreme sport” action of Guts Frisbee™ has fueled its spread around the world, with countries like Japan, Finland, Canada, England, Germany, Norway, and the United States all hosting major international tournaments. If you can throw the disc accurately and hard, have great hands, quick reaction time, and fearless diving ability, Guts could be the most exciting game you’ll ever play!
