We will be introducing, explaining, and describing a rule each time from the 11th edition UPA rules. I encourage discussion for each rule in the comment section as well as any additions and explanations to the rule. So here is our first!
Spirit of the Game
Ultimate relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate unsportsmanlike conduct from the Ultimate field. Such actions as taunting opposing players, dangerous aggression, belligerent intimidation, intentional infractions, or other
win-at-all-costsbehavior are contrary to the spirit of the game and must be avoided by all players.
