MODS will be releasing a series of news stories over the next few months to help explain the changes to the rules of Ultimate which have been adopted by the World Flying Disc Federation (WFDF) and Ultimate Canada (UC). The monthly stories are here to help understand the new rules and will be vetted by Operations Director Corey Draper and Manitoba's top Observer, Josh Drury.
In the new rules, the Spirit of the Game section has been moved to be a part of the main rules. In addition, WFDF has added several examples of good and poor spirit for reference. The takeaway is that Spirit of the Game is important at all levels. It is the core principle that allows the sport of Ultimate to remain in the hands of the players. Below is the new wording for the rule in full.
We look forward to several rules updates between now and the start of the summer season. Please remember there is no better way to learn the rules then to read them. Also please be patient as educating our player base is going to take some time and not everyone will be confident with the new changes. Every team should do their best to become as familiar as possible with the changes.
