Everyone has traveled – but how many times are they called on it? When is a good time to call a travel on someone? When is a bad time to call a travel on someone? These are all important questions but it’s important to understand what a travel is before you call it on someone.
The USA Ultimate 11th Edition describes a travel as:
J. Traveling: The thrower must establish a pivot at the appropriate spot on the field and keep all or part of the pivot in contact with that spot until the throw is released. Failure to do so is a travel and results in a stoppage of play and a check.
