The following are generic TCUL policies that apply to all leagues.
All players (subs included) must fill out a waiver. If you register for a TCUL league or event, you must sign an electronic wavier. If you need a paper copy one can be downloaded from the bottom of this page.
Players may cancel registrations before an event takes place or a league draft is performed and potentially receive a full or partial refund, depending upon the event/league and amount of time before the event/league starts. Please inquire about a cancellation as soon as you know you may want to do so. Cancellations that occur after an event or team draft will forfeit their registration fee.
In the event of a cancellation, the TCUL Board may assign a permanent substitute player (often from a league waiting list) to replace that player. Captains may be asked for input, but ultimately the decision falls to the board. Permasubs will not be allowed after midseason in any league.
If the games have not previously been cancelled and you see lightning 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 the game's allotted time or 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, either due to decisions made by the National Sports Center, the TCUL board, or other venues where TCUL events are taking place.
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, and our Code of Conduct, will be held responsible for their actions. Continued lack of spirit could lead to removal from current (and future) TCUL leagues.
