Spirit Scoring

In an effort to decrease avenues in which bias can affect Spirit of the Game (SOTG), the SOTG Working Group (WG) and USA Ultimate Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Staff Committee have updated the Spirit Captain Guide. The updated guide also reflects the 2020-2021 Rules of Ultimate. The spirit captain role has been added to the 2020-2021 Rules of Ultimate, so we encourage your team to have a spirit captain. For mixed teams, in alignment with our efforts to promote gender equity, we recommend choosing two people of different gender identities for your spirit captains. Per the 2020-2021 Rules of Ultimate, the definition of a Spirit Captain is the following. "A spirit captain is a team member who is eligible to participate in the game and has been designated to address, discuss and resolve spirit issues at any point throughout the competition with opponents, teammates, coaches and game or event officials. If no spirit captain is designated, this role is assigned to the captain(s)." 
This event will be carrying out spirit scoring via a Google Form. You'll be able to see the Spirit Score Sheet & Examples in the Google form, but you can also find it here. Please note that the SOTG WG and EDI Staff Committee have updated the Spirit Score Sheet & Examples from the 2014 version that was used previously in an effort to decrease avenues in which bias can affect Spirit of the Game. The Spirit Score Sheet & Examples is not yet finalized, and you will have a chance to provide feedback on it. Thank you for piloting our new Google form and Spirit Score Sheet & Examples. These great resources couldn't happen without the hard work of volunteers in our SOTG WG!
There is a distinct form for each division. See below for the forms.
Links for each division's spirit scoring Google Forms to come soon.

High Altitude Tips

In Colorado’s rarified air, golf balls go ten percent farther… and so do cocktails. Alcoholic drinks pack more of a wallop than at sea level. The sun feels warmer because you're closer to it, but your coffee is cooler because water boils at 202 degrees. Colorado is also extremely dry, and with less water vapor in the air at this altitude, the sky really is bluer in Colorado. But there's 25 percent less protection from the sun, so sunscreen is a must.

DRINK WATER both before your trip to Colorado, and while you are here. Drinking plenty of water is the number one way to help your body adjust easily to our higher altitude. The low humidity in Colorado keeps the air dry, like the desert, so you need about twice as much water here as you would drink at home. It is also recommended that you go easy on the alcohol in the mountains and in Aurora, as its effects will feel stronger here. The effects of exercise are more intense here as well. If you normally run 10 miles a day at home, you might try 6 miles in Aurora, Colorado

Eat foods high in potassium, such as; broccoli, bananas, avocado, cantaloupe, Celery, greens, bran, chocolate, granola, dates, dried fruit, potatoes, tomatoes

What to bring: Bring sunglasses, sunscreen, lip balm… even in winter and plenty of water. There is 25% less protection from the sun’s rays at higher elevation.

Altitude: Don't let anything you hear about the mile-high altitude scare you. The air is just thinner and dryer. In fact, many people with respiratory problems, including our Governor, move to Colorado for the benefits of the dry air. Just follow these simple tips and you will very likely not even notice the difference.

Additional Safety Precautions

  • All participants and staff must follow the CDC good hygiene practices:
    • Use hand sanitizer, disinfectant wipes, or no-rinse soap.
    • Avoid touching your face.
    • Sneeze or cough into a tissue or the inside of your elbow.
  • Athletes, organizers, and coaches will NOT participate if they feel under the weather, sick, or have come in contact with someone that may be sick. 
  • We will have an alcohol-based hand sanitizer (with at least 60% alcohol) and handwashing stations for all participants to use regularly throughout the event.
  • All players, coaches, and spectators should practice social distancing of 6 ft. wherever possible and activities that are not conducive to the required 6 feet of physical distancing will be limited throughout the day. 
  • We request that players space equipment accordingly to prevent close contact.
  • No Handshakes or group celebrations and spirit circles

Update on Masks Requirements

We will be following USAU's new mask protocols they recently issued which states that all on-field participants (e.g., players, coaches, observers) will be provided with the option to report their vaccination status as part of the event registration process (or testing status).

a. On-field participants who provide proof of completed vaccination (i.e., two weeks after final dose) will not be required to wear a mask on the field of play, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations.

b. On-field participants who submit proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test will not be required to wear a mask on the field of play, unless otherwise required by state or local regulations. The test must have been performed within 72 hours of the start of the event and submitted prior to participation.

c. On-field participants who do not meet the criteria in 2a or 2b above may participate provided they wear a mask when on the field.
 
The option to provide proof of complete vaccination or a negative COVID-19 PCR test will be a part of each player's USAU membership profile and we will be checking registration via the USAU event rosters of participating teams and individuals. Players and/or teams that don’t comply with these or other event rules are subject to removal from the event.

PROOF OF COVID VACCINATION INSTRUCTIONS *** Please do this ASAP

HOW TO ADD YOUR VACCINATION STATUS TO YOUR PROFILE
STEP 1: Log in to your USAU Membership Profile

NEGATIVE TEST RESULT INSTRUCTIONS 

For the negative COVID-19 PCR test that was taken within 72 hours of the start of the event. ***NOTE: the test must be a PCR test, not an antigen (AKA rapid) test. 

For this event that means your test must have been conducted AFTER 9:00 am on Wednesday, Sept 1, 2021. 

*** SCHEDULE YOUR TEST AS SOON AS POSSIBLE FOR AFTER 9A ON WED, SEPT 1

Once you have your results, please submit this form to upload results (test submitted with a date prior to Wednesday will be invalid)and upload a picture or screenshot of your results. Results must include your name, date of test, that it was a PCR test, and the negative result. If your result is positive, you are not to attend and should quarantine. While we hope that Spirit of the Game extends to your honesty in filling this form out, any uploaded images that are found to have been altered or forged will result in immediate ejection from the tournament as well as potential suspension from future events.

The safety of our players, their communities, and the communities in which we host events are of the utmost importance. Playing ultimate is a privilege, one that we can only participate in if we work together to ensure each other's health and safety.
