UKU is committed to fostering the principles of Spirit of the Game at all levels, as described in the Spirit of the Game Policy. The UKU Spirit of the Game Committee facilitates this, by engaging with development, education and outreach, from grassroots level to elite national representative teams.

Specifically, the Committee is responsible for:

  • Developing and sharing educational resources relating to Spirit of the Game.
  • Providing input to UKU courses for Game Advisors, Coaches, Spirit Directors and others.
  • Reviewing Spirit scoring results from UKU tournaments.
  • Acting where necessary to resolve Spirit issues with specific teams or participants* 
  • Providing resources and support to elite teams representing the UK at major international competitions (including club teams competing at events such as WUCC)

* Typically the Spirit Committee’s role is not to act in response to specific Spirit incidents during events; these should generally be handled by the Spirit Captain(s) of the team(s) involved in the first instance, or escalated to the Tournament Director and/or Spirit Director as necessary. Rather, the Committee responds to trends or systemic issues which may emerge after an event, or over the course of several events.
