Due to a recent increase in the number of league incidents, we felt it was necessary to revisit the Dangerous Play Rule. Safety for our players needs to be a priority and we must continue to educate our membership.
There are a number of reasons why this is an issue:
TUC will be implementing a pilot project (in the Thursday Downsview HAT league and the Thursday Monarch Elite league) where the WFDF Dangerous Play rule will replace the USAU Dangerous Play rule. The goal of this change is to provide a safe environment for all TUC players in all games. At the core level, Ultimate is a non-contact sport and this rule embodies this principle of the game. Know up front this change will not be a perfect solution to something that may have happened in one of your past games and it will take time for all players to make an adjustment.
