December 3rd, 2015 marks the International Spirit of the Game Day — celebrate with us and the entire world ultimate community! Here’s an explanation of what the Spirit of the Game (SOTG) means form the world governing body of flying disc sports,

Spirit of the Game is the most important rule in flying disc sports. It is summarised in this preamble to the rules of play:

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. 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. 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.
