Policies

The following are generic TCUL policies that apply to all leagues.

Cancellations

Players may cancel anytime before draft day to receive a full refund.  Cancellations that occur after the draft will forfeit their registration fee.

Permasubs

In the event of a cancellation, the TCUL Board will assign a permasub (from the waitlist) to replace that player.  Captains can give feedback, but ultimately the decision falls to the board.

Weather/Lightning

If the games have not previously been cancelled and you see lighning at the fields, stop playing and go to your cars for 30 minutes.  Every time you see lighting the 30 minute clock resets.  If it gets to the point where you will have no chance to get a reasonable length game played before sunset, then the games would be cancelled at that point. Board members have airhorns.  If you hear an airhorn that means games are cancelled. When in doubt, check our Facebook page to check for the most up to date information on game cancellations from National Sports Center and the board.

Spirit of the Game

Excerpts from the Official Rules of Ultimate: 11th Edition

From the Preface:"The integrity of Ultimate depends on each player's responsibility to uphold the Spirit of the Game, and this responsibility should remain paramount."

From Section 1. Introduction, item B. "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-costs' behavior are contrary to the Spirit of the Game and must be avoided by all players."

TCUL takes Spirit of the Game very seriously and players that exhibit behavior contrary to this will be held responsible.  Continued negative behaviour would lead to removal from current (and future) TCUL leagues.
