How do I go to there?

Started playing soccer and ultimate frisbee this past summer. Even though I can keep up physically, I've realized I have no clue where to position myself. Can you help me with my game? I would really like to play more offensively, but I don't know how!

I've noticed that in both sports while I'm decent at defending - following my mark, staying between my mark and the ball/disc - I am never in a position to play offensively. Even though my passing and throwing skills are okay, I never get the ball or disc unless I'm defending and trying to take it away from someone else. It's nice to prevent the other team from scoring, but I want to help my soccer and ultimate teams score! What kind of strategies can I use in order to recognize primes places to run to so I can receive the ball/disc?
