Abstract or Summary

The aims of this study were to examine and compare movement patterns of 4 male and 4 female Ultimate Frisbee players during a 3-day mixed national tournament and investigate if the outcome of matches (win/loss) were the result of any specific characteristics. Five matches played to 13 points were analysed over the tournament with data collected via GPS. Length of games averaged 70:43 [Symbol] 14:19 minutes, with a mean on field playing time of 16:53 [Symbol] 5:46 minutes and average point duration of 1:57 [Symbol] 0:23 minutes. Both genders covered significantly more distance during games won compared to games lost. On average females spent a significantly longer duration of time running at 80-100% of their max speed, compared to males (13 ± 8 sec vs. 7 ± 4 sec respectively). When this occurred there was a statistically significant interacting with games won (p = 0.043). Both genders executed significantly more sprints on average during a point during games won compared to games lost. These findings suggest match outcome may be determined by having female players spend greater durations of time within higher speed zones and that it is advantageous for both genders to complete a greater number sprints during points.
