The 2,800-member Washington Area Frisbee Club (WAFC) is a nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to promoting flying disc sports in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. WAFC sponsors local Ultimate leagues that include divisions for players of all levels, from beginner to national-caliber. Ultimate in the nation’s capital offers a great way to make new friends and get – or stay – in shape. And we’re always looking for new, energetic volunteers to help keep the games flowing.
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.
