The day the frisbee world celebrates our #1 rule

WFDF invites everyone in the frisbee community to be part of the worldwide celebration of Spirit of the Game on this coming Saturday the 3rd of December 2022.

The WFDF Spirit of the Game Commission members encourage you to share photos/videos/stories of these or other manifestations of spirit at #iSOTGDay:

  • Get together with your friends and relate to each other demonstrations of excellent spirit or teaching moments
  • Organize a friendly game, but with a twist: evaluate your own team’s spirit instead of your opponents!
  • Explain SOTG to a non-frisbee player
  • Make a rules knowledge quiz
  • Share memorable moments on your social media channels
  • Hold a Spirit Clinic

“I am convinced that SOTG as our #1 rule is our community’s best contribution to the world of sport,” stated Spirit of the Game Commission chair Jose Amoroso. “I thank all the members of the WFDF SOTG Commission members and all those players who cherish, respect, teach and live by the values of SOTG. Without the past, there is guaranteed no future.”

Spirit of the Game is the mindful behavior practiced by players worldwide in a mutual effort to protect the basic joy of play. It makes self-officiation possible, encourages personal responsibility, and encompasses attitudes and skills such as good knowledge of the rules, fair-mindedness, safe play, clear and calm communication, and a positive and respectful attitude.

iSOTG Day encourages disc sport communities around the world to celebrate and reflect on Spirit of the Game, a core and unique tenet of the sport of Ultimate and other disc sports.

“iSOTG Day was originally introduced by the community with the support of the charity Early Recognition is Critical (E.R.I.C.), BULA, and WFDF in 2015, and eventually transferred over fully to WFDF under the SOTG Commission, added Robert “Nob” Rauch, WFDF President. “We are proud to continue to celebrate spirit of the game as a core element of disc sport.”

Please share your moments with LOVE and PASSION

#iSOTGDay today and always!
