The intention of these rules is to provide additions to the basic rules in order to create
a smooth—running, spectator—friendly, well-resourced elite sports event. They set the
standard for WFDF events, but should also guide best practice for non-WFDF events.
Specifically, these rules will be applied at the following events:
- World Ultimate Championships,
- World Ultimate Club Championships,
- Continental Championships (e. g. Pan-American Ultimate Championships, Asia-
Oceanic Ultimate Championships),
- World Games (along with other changes as mandated by WFDF and/ or IWGA
- World Junior Ultimate Championships.
For non-WFDF events, a selection or modification of these rules may be added to the
basic rules of play, according to the level of resources available and the standard of
Basic modifications for a non-WFDF event may include:
0 Playing surface
0 Number of players
0 Size of field
0 Length of game
0 Field markings
These Interpretations complement the WFDF Rules of Ultimate 2009. The WFDF
Rules of Ultimate is the primary document outlining how to play the game of
Ultimate. However players may refer to these interpretations to help determine the
correct way to apply the rules and resolve issues on the field.
The rules are written to be as comprehensive, clear, simple and accurate as
possible. However, it is not always easy for the average player to understand how
to apply the rules to every situation, so these interpretations provide some
common examples of how to apply the rules.
In a refereed sport, referees or umpires have discretion on whether a breach
makes a material difference to the outcomes of the game. As ultimate is self-
refereed, these interpretations also aim to establish common ground on what
breaches would be considered material.
Although the Interpretations do not constitute part of the rules of the game, they
are conventions that should be followed in order to establish a common way of
playing the game, and if an example from this document is encountered on the
ﬁeld, the guidance of the Interpretations should be followed.
The Rules of Ultimate are based on principles that outline how the game
should be played and how to resolve issues. When encountering a scenario
that is not expressly described by the rules, these principles are a good guide
to help resolve the issue:
- It is trusted that no player will intentionally violate the rules; thus there are
no harsh penalties for breaches, but rather a method for resuming play
in a manner which simulates what would most likely have occurred had
there been no breach.
-A team should not be disadvantaged because the opposition has made
an error or caused a breach.
-Calls should only be made where a breach has occurred that has a
meaningful impact on the game. Players should allow for a reasonable
degree of tolerance for minor breaches involving small discrepancies in
distance and time.
- Not everybody sees a situation in the same light. Two players with a very
good view of a situation can still see very different things happening.
Human perception is not perfect. Players should be aware of this when
trying to resolve calls.
-If a call cannot be resolved then the disc shall be returned to where
possession was last undisputed and play shall resume as it was prior to
Ultimate is a seven-a-side team sport played with a
flying disc. It is played on a rectangular field, about half
the width of a football ﬁeld, with an end zone at each
end. The object of each team is to score a goal by having
a player catch a pass in the end zone that they are
attacking. A thrower may not run with the disc, but may
pass the disc in any direction to any team-mate. Any
time a pass is incomplete, a turnover occurs, and the
other team may take the disc to score in the opposite
end zone. Games are typically played to I7 goals and last
around I00 minutes. Ultimate is self-refereed and non-
contact. The Spirit of the Game guides how players
referee the game and conduct themselves on the field.
I . SPIRIT OF THE GAME
| .|. Ultimate is a non-contact, self-refereed sport.
All players are responsible for administering and
adhering to the rules. Ultimate relies upon a Spirit
of the Game that places the responsibility for fair
play on every player.
|.2. It is trusted that no player will intentionally break
the rules; thus there are no harsh penalties for
breaches, but rather a method for resuming play in a
manner which simulates what would most likely have
occurred had there been no breach.
|.3. Players should be mindful of the fact that they are
acting as referees in any arbitration between teams. In
such situations, players must:
| .3. I . know the rules;
| .3.2. be fair-minded and objective;
| .3.3. be truthful;
|.3.4. explain their viewpoint clearly and briefly;
1.1 Providing evidence to support a call (1 .3.4)
What It is an essential component of good spirit that a player must
be prepared, if asked, to explain concisely the objective
evidence that led to making a call, or contesting a call.
Example After making a travel call, if asked, the defender might
explain ''I saw you lift your pivot foot while the disc was still
in your hand. "

The objective evidence is evidence that can be tested for
validity. It makes it clear that the call was not based on
emotion or what the player wanted or expected to happen,
but what they actually observed.
If a player is not reasonably certain of the objective evidence,
they should not make a call.
Players should be aware and understanding of the language
limitations accompanying international play, however
opponents should still be able to communicate, even
through gestures, what they saw. Team captains and team
mates should get involved if they think their team's player is
wrong or does not behave correctly.
| .3.5. allow opponents a reasonable chance to speak;
l.3.6. resolve disputes as quickly as possible; and
l.3.7. use respectful language.
I.4. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but should
never sacriﬁce the mutual respect between players,
adherence to the agreed-upon rules of the game, or
the basic joy of play.
|.5.The following actions are examples of good spirit:
| .5.| . informing a team-mate if they have made a
wrong or unnecessary call or caused a foul or
| .5.2. retracting a call when you no longer believe
the call was necessary;
l.5.3. complimenting an opponent for good play or
| .5.4. introducing yourself to your opponent; and
| .5.5. reacting calmly towards disagreement or
l.6. The following actions are clear violations of the
spirit of the game and must be avoided by all
l.6. I . dangerous play and aggressive behaviour;
l.6.2. intentional fouling or other intentional rule
|.6.3. taunting or intimidating opposing players;
|.6.4. disrespectful celebration after scoring
1.2 Disrespectful celebration after scoring (1 .6.4)
What This includes spiking directed at an opponent and
taunting of the opponent by "showing" them
the disc. These actions must be avoided.
Result Opposing team captains should discuss all matters
relating to violations of spirit and try to resolve
| .6.5. making calls in retaliation to an opponent’s call; and
| .6.6. calling for a pass from an opposition player.
l.7. Teams are guardians of the Spirit of the Game, and
l.7.l. take responsibility for teaching their players the
rules and good spirit;
l.7.2. discipline players who display poor spirit; and
| .7.3. provide constructive feedback to other teams
about how to improve their adherence to the Spirit of
A7.1. If a team’s captain believes that either or both teams are failing to follow
the Spirit of the Game (SOTG), they may call a “Spirit of the Game Time-out.
This can only be called after the start of a point and prior to the ensuing pull.
A7.2. During this time-out, neither team may engage in tactical discussions. All
team members of both teams will form a “spirit circle” in the middle of the field.
A7.3. The two opposing team captains shall separately discuss all current issues
with adherence to SOTG, determine ways to rectify those issues, and then
convey the agreement to the spirit circle.
A7.4. SOTG time-outs do not affect, nor are they affected by, the number of time-
|.8. In the case where a novice player commits an
infraction out of ignorance of the rules, experienced
players are obliged to explain the infraction.
| .9. An experienced player, who offers advice on
rules and guides on-ﬁeld arbitration, may supervise
games involving beginners or younger players.
|. |0. Rules should be interpreted by the players directly
involved in the play, or by players who had the best
perspective on the play. Non-players, apart from the
captain, should refrain from getting involved. However
for calls relating to “out-of-bounds” and “down”,
players may seek the perspective of non-players to
assist them to make the appropriate call.
1.3 Seeking perspective from non players for "out-of-bounds" and
Note It is still up to the players involved to make the final call. Non
players must not provide verbal advice regarding a call
unless they are requested to by the players involved.

the disc shall be returned to the last non-disputed
