Event Deadlines

Please make note of the event deadlines as outlined below – failure to meet the deadlines could result in automatic loss of your team bid.

You are kindly asked to supply information and make payments as soon as possible – please do not wait until you are close to the deadline as this simply creates a bottleneck of work for the WFDF and the TOC.

Philippine Visa

You are responsible for obtaining the correct paperwork to visit the Philippines to compete at AOUGCC 2017. Please note that we cannot provide specific advice on the process, but we do strongly recommend that you get started as soon as possible. www.immigration.gov.ph

The TOC can provide your team administrator with a letter confirming your team’s registration at the event. To do that we generally require confirmation of the following details for all the members of your group: full name (as shown on passport), passport number, date of birth and role on team (i.e. player, coach, manager, etc).

Please make sure you leave us some time to produce this document. Do not assume that we can send it back the same day! Find out if you will need a hard copy with original signature – obviously that will take extra time so please plan ahead.

Please note that we cannot and will not provide a formal “invitation” to attend the event, and that non-ability to enter the Philippines is not grounds for a request of a refund for a team and/or player fees.

SPIRIT OF THE GAME

Ultimate relies upon a Spirit of the Game that places the responsibility for fair play on every player. There are no referees; the players are solely responsible for following and enforcing the rules, even at World Championship. Competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players, adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.

After every game, it is important that teams reflect on the performance of their opponents in upholding Spirit of the Game by scoring them in five aspects:

  • Rules Knowledge of Use (ex. They did not purposefully misinterpret the rules. When they didn’t know the rules they showed a real willingness to learn.)
  • Fouls and Body Contact (ex. They avoided fouling, contact, and dangerous plays)
  • Fair-Mindedness (ex. They apologized in situations where it was appropriate, informed teammates about wrong / unnecessary calls. Only called significant breaches.)
  • Positive Attitude and Self-Control (ex. They were polite. They played with appropriate intensity irrespective of the score. They left an overall positive impression during and after the game.)
  • Communication (ex. They communicated respectfully. They listened. They kept to discussion time limits.)
