New Times: What is the concept of boosting in Ultimate Frisbee?
Sheehy: The concept of boosting starts with throwing up a really long, floaty disc so that a teammate has to run down the field and try to catch it. To be boosted is to jump up and grab the frisbee over the opponent that you are trying to beat down field.
New Times: How long do games typically last? Are they fatiguing?
Sheehy: Games usually last about and hour and a half. The first team to 12 points wins but there are usually time-caps. In terms of fatigue, it is pretty similar to soccer. You have breaks between points but you are still sprinting the entire game so it can be tiring.
