Knoxville Ultimate
2022 Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

The integrity of ultimate depends on each player’s responsibility to uphold the Spirit of the Game, and this responsibility should remain paramount.

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-costs’ behavior are contrary to the Spirit of the Game and must be avoided by all players.

I agree to abide and uphold Spirit of the Game and refrain from abusive behavior, dangerous play, or intentional rule infractions under USAU 11th edition. Violation of this agreement follows a three strike rule as voted by the captains of teams involved and Knoxville Ultimate (KU) board: (1) ejection from game, (2) ejection from league, (3) one calendar year suspension from all KU activity beginning on the date in which third infraction occurs. Appeals can be made in writing to The KU board will vote on appeals. Basically, be nice out there y’all.
