Flying into Fun: Disc It, the Next Evolution in PE Games

Ah, the humble flying disc – the iconic plastic toy that has been soaring through the skies since its accidental invention in the 1930s. From beach days to park picnics, sport discs have been the go-to casual game for decades. But what if I told you there’s a new game in town that makes disc sports enjoyable for all ages, and especially for your physical education classes? Say hello to Disc It, the next great disc game that’s about to revolutionize your PE curriculum! We all know the story of how the sport disc came to be – a group of college students tossing around empty pie tins from the Frisbie Pie Company in Connecticut. Fast forward to today, and it has evolved into a variety of disc games, but none quite like Disc It. Disc It is like the cooler, more athletic cousin, bringing a whole new dimension to the beloved flying disc.

#1 Classic Disc It

The world’s first interactive disc game – Check out the video tutorial below or click here for the written rules!

  • In Disc It, teams aim to score points by passing the disc and hitting a pole; the black section earns one point, while the yellow section earns two.
  • The first team to reach 11 points, winning by two, emerges victorious.
  • The game starts with a flip, and the team that guesses correctly begins passing from the Starting Marker.
  • One-on-one or zone coverage, turnovers, interceptions, and penalties add strategic elements, ensuring an engaging experience for students.
  • If a player steps into the Penalty Zone, opponents can call a violation for an unguarded penalty shot, earning one point if successful.

With no out-of-bounds and a simple three-minute setup, Disc It offers an exciting and accessible game for physical education classes indoors and outdoors on any flat surface.

#2 Disc It Knockout

A basketball classic – Disc It edition!

  • All players line up at the starting marker. The first two players have a disc in hand.
  • The first player tosses their disc aiming for the yellow section of the pole.
  • If the player hits yellow, then they move to the back of the line and pass the disc to the next player. If they miss, subsequent shots for yellow must occur from where the disc lands.
  • But watch out, anytime the disc lands in the penalty zone, the player must pick it up and return to the starting marker to shoot, giving the opponent more time.
  • If the player behind you hits yellow first, you’re OUT!
  • Once two players remain, the first tosser must hit yellow twice from the starting marker before the second tosser hits it once.

The last player standing wins!!
