Since Ultimate is self-refereed, it is important all players know the rules. To guarantee this, players should demonstrate they have read and understood the rules of Ultimate, by fulfilling the ACCREDIATION PROCESS on the WFDF website.


All players and non-players should be able to succesfully obtain the ‘Standard’ accreditation. More experienced players should also try to get the ‘Advanced’ accreditation. Because the rules tend to change over time, your certificate is only valid for 18 months. After this time, the players need to redo the test, to see whether they still know their rules.


On several high-level tournaments, the standard accreditation is obliged for all players and a minimum amount of players (including the captain) should also have their advanced certificate.
