We aim to grow the sport of ultimate frisbee in a sustainable and inclusive way. We believe the sport can be fun for beginners, challenging for elite athletes, and engaging for spectators. The sport is in its adolescent years in terms of strategy – if you are open to new approaches, we provide fresh ideas to help everybody have more fun and win, and fresh ideas will help everybody have more fun and win. We anticipate rapid strategic evolution in ultimate – specifically moving towards free flow on offence, dynamic teamwork on defence, and away from stacks, isolations, set plays, and strict matchups.

We aim to facilitate the education, training, performance, and enjoyment of teams and individuals who are on board with this philosophy all around the World.

Hive Ultimate is proud to announce our partnership with the Singapore National team. We hope to help translate Singapore’s outrageous successes at the junior level to senior competition, by working with them remotely. Our work includes discussing drills that can be run at trainings and illustrating them for players through video animation, scouting opponents, and producing video analysis from footage of scrimmages and games.

We are looking to work closely with a handful of teams in the near future – if you want your team to get ahead of the curve as strategy evolves, visit hiveultimate.com.

But what does this evolution mean for the youtube channel? We have a number of projects already beginning to be released from a number of different content creators – including Rhino v PoNY analysis, and the Offensive Mistakes series. There is also a book written by Florian and Marie Gailliegue called Ultimate in Motion: Dynamism and balance – which is currently available for $25 tier patrons.

Starting this month, I’ll be turning the focus of the monthly $8 tier training videos from offence to defence. We’ll be looking at ways you can train your players to be aware, communicative, and work as a dynamic team unit on the field, with the usual animations and critical points for focus.

If you are interested in getting involved in content creation, and sharing your ideas about ultimate with the world, check the About Us section of our website to see how we can help your ideas become a reality. If your talents lie in the more technical side of video production, we’re able to link you in to exciting projects where the final product will be watched by thousands and make a real difference to the sport we love.

We’re determined to bring the ultimate community high quality content, and that takes time and energy. We’ve come this far thanks to the generosity of felixultimate patrons, and now we’re going to offer more content than ever before. With your support moving forwards, we can give the creators, producers, and coaches the compensation they deserve for their time.

In return for your pledge you get access to all our video analysis, training videos such as Felix’s Hex and Flex drills, a forum on discord to chat to other patrons and coaches, and either a free disc or the Ultimate in Motion book depending on your level of support.

I appreciate all the support I’ve received since the USA v Japan turnover analysis video. In recent years I’ve been hearing more and more about teams having success introducing new strategies in their teams, so we hope you’ll join us as ultimate evolves, and the hive evolves with it.

How to Train Hex: Season 1 Complete

The “How to Train Hex” video series – Season 1 – features 9 uniquely Hex-centric drills. This series is essential for any coaches wishing to implement Hex principles smoothly into their team – coming directly from Felix’s experiences with designing, implementing, and developing Hex training methods in a variety of teams since 2012. Each drill / exercise is explained clearly and concisely through explanations, animations, and example footage. The drills are varied and dynamic – designed to train players’ quick disc movement, field awareness, shape + space creation & usage, give-go/dribbling technique, long throwing, and more elements key to a fluid Hex Offence.

The full archive is available now for $8+ Patrons along with other benefits – pledge now and receive a free disc after your 2nd payment!

Season 1 felixultimate 2020 Livestreams (22 games / 43 sessions)

From March to July 2020, we hosted our first season of live streamed analysis sessions. Twice a week I was joined by select guests, and we would dive deep into analysis of a game of their choice whilst chatting frisbee for an hour or two. The result is an epic archive of insight and conversation with some of the greatest minds in the game, covering 22 games in 43 sessions. Most of these sessions cover half a game – the 1st half on YouTube, and the 2nd half on Patreon – available for a token of your appreciation ($1/month). See more…
