I maintain this site so the names of the dedicated ultimate players, their teams, and their achievements will not disappear over time. My newest project was publishing the three new Ultimate History Books.

♦ ULTIMATE–The First Five Decades, Vol. I (1968-2004)
(Vol. I is reprint of 2005 “ULTIMATE–The First Four Decades”)

♦ ULTIMATE–The First Five Decades, Vol. II (2005-2018)
(Vol. II is a new book with 224 pages of history and 200+ photos.)

♦ ULTIMATE–The First Five Decades, Vol. III (eBook)
(Vol. III is an eBook covering the history of the Disc, Rules & SOTG, HoF)

Ultimate History - Joe Seidler
Maintaining the history on this website is a true labor of love…
I’ve never played ultimate. My wife and I first saw a game in 1993 when our son started playing at UCSB. We quickly became avid fans attending many college and club Regionals, Nationals and Worlds through 2004, and now attending Masters Championships. Along the way, I became dedicated to documenting the history of the sport and the great athletes who play it.
