Teams of one to five players stand in a line facing each other. After a coin toss, the winning team selects one player to begin play. This player lifts his arm, indicating a readiness to throw. When this happens, the opposing team is forced to cease all movement. The thrower throws a disc at someone on the opposing team. If the thrower misses the scoring area, or if the opposing team catches the disc, the opposing team scores a point. If the throw is within the scoring area, or if the opposing team fails to catch the disc, the throwing team scores a point. All catches must be made cleanly in one hand. The first team to reach 21 points is the winner.
Guts Frisbee is a disc game similar to dodgeball where two teams score points by throwing discs at each other. If a disc is dropped, the throwing team receives a point. If a disc is caught, the receiving team scores. Guts Frisbee is a fast-paced, extreme sport that looks like dodgeball with flying discs. Teams of up to five throw discs at each other to score points. Throws that hit an opponent or land within the scoring zones are awarded points. Throws that are caught or land outside the scoring zone are counted as points for the opponent. The first team to score 21 points is the winner.
Guts Frisbee was invented in Michigan in the 1960's. The sport's uniqueness caused it to spread rapidly. By the 1970's, Guts Frisbee was being played across the United States, and was being covered by both radio and television. It reached an apex in the mid-1970's when a 60-team tournament was aired on ABC's Wide World of Sports. In the 1990's it was introduced to Asia, where it became extremely popular. The sport's biggest tournament is the annual International Frisbee Tournament, organized by the World Flying Disc Federation. Today Guts Frisbee is less played, but still attracts a loyal following around the globe.
