The WFDF Rules Accreditation process for the Rules of Ultimate 2017 is designed to allow players to demonstrate that they have read and understood the Rules of Ultimate.
There are two types of Accreditation:
For all types of players (including those who have not played a game)
For experienced players only
Players can verify their accreditation status by providing a copy of their certificate. Certificates can be found here: rules.wfdf.org/my-results
Tournament Directors and League Directors are encouraged to require players on each team to be Rules Accredited. This could include requiring all players to have, at a minimum, the Standard Accreditation and for half the players on each team to have the Advanced Accreditation.
Important note regarding Rules Accredited players:
- They have the same responsibilities on the field as every other player
- They do not release a Captain from their responsibility to ensure their team upholds the Spirit of the Game
- They do not replace the requirement for each player to learn and apply the rules and play with good Spirit
The suggested method for verifying these requirements is for Spirit Captains to collect the certificates for their team and to be able to provide them at registration, or upon request as part of a spot check process.
