What is Goaltimate?
Goaltimate is a half-court disc game derived from Ultimate with the object to score points by throwing the frisbee to a teammate in a small scoring area, through a large semicircular hoop called the goal. It’s as if ultimate and basketball were brought together in harmony!
Gameplay consists of two teams of four players each with the goal at one end and a clear zone in the other. Throwing the disc through the goal to a teammate standing within the scoring area results in one point. Woohoo!
The disc can only go one direction through the hoop and passing otherwise results in a turnover. As in ultimate, turnovers also result when a disc is dropped, intercepted, goes out of bounds, or when the thrower is stalled at 5 seconds. Yep, it’s only 5 seconds in Goalty! Unlike in Ultimate, a stall count may be called from anywhere on the playing field. Play is continuous, with no pause after scores or clears.
