UltiPhotos of the Month: July 2021

The best shots of the month!

In our UltiPhotos of the Month series, we feature some of our favorite shots from the leading photography company in ultimate. You get the play, they’ll get the shot.

After many months without organized ultimate frisbee, July brought us numerous tournaments held across the country. Players from youth to masters competed with their hearts on their sleeves, eager to get back into the swing of things. Each player’s marks, throws, and catches were performed with an intensity many have missed for the past year. These photos capture the spirit of ultimate in the month of July 2021.

You can see our favorites from the month of July below or check out the full collections from:
