Incident Reporting

PUL is committed to upholding the safety of all players, the Spirit of the Game and player behaviour in accordance with the PUL Code of Conduct in all Ultimate Frisbee games and other PUL sanctioned events. Serious incidents involving league members must be addressed and resolved in a consistent, fair and transparent manner.

When serious incidents take place during games, they must be immediately dealt with in an attempt of on-field resolution.An incident report must be filed for each serious incident and will be forwarded to the League Coordinator. League Coordinators may forward incident reports to the Membership Committee, which will address issues within the framework provided in the Safe Conduct Implementation Guideline (attached).

When serious incidents occur, captains from both teams must submit an incident report to the League Coordinator (LC) regardless of whether the issue has been dealt with on the field or not. If players or captains are feeling uncertain about whether or not to submit an Incident Report, they should play it safe and submit a report. Note that ALL INJURIES MUST NOW BE REPORTED TO LEAGUE COORDINATORS THROUGH AN INCIDENT REPORT. Incident reporting is open to all PUL members, not just captains.

Examples of serious incidents include, but are not limited to:

● Physical Violence

● Dangerous or Reckless Play

● Cheating or Overly Poor Spirit

● Unsafe Playing Conditions

● Injury

In order to file an incident report, please fill out the following form.  An incident report should provide as clear a portrayal of the circumstances as possible – the people involved, the key facts of the situation, as well as the resolution or lack thereof. Without an incident report issues of concern are considered hearsay and effectively non-issues – i.e. league coordinators and PUL administrators cannot take appropriate action if there is no record of such issues. Any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your specific league coordinator.
