Good conduct in the game of field mojo, and really for any recreational sport, can be divided into two categories. The first category is putting out a positive and fun attitude. The second is good sportsmanship, which we will call The Spirit Of The Game.

Bring The Fun

Fun and socializing is a big part of playing sports - it's why most of us are here. Here are some dos and don'ts for creating an enjoyable experience for your teammates:

Spirit Of The Game

The Spirit Of The Game is a concept taken from the sport Ultimate. The Official Rules Of Ultimate describe it as the following: Ultimate relies upon a spirit of sportsmanship that places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. Protection of these vital elements serves to eliminate unsportsmanlike conduct from the Ultimate field.

Field mojo is a sport with few breaks in play, and is difficult to officiate, so players are expected to call thier own plays in an honest manner. Examples of honest play:

Sometimes a sense of right and wrong is not enough; some players or teams may need to be penalized.

If an Overseer deems an individual player's conduct to be egregious, that player may be forced to wear a silly hat or necklace relevant to the offense. If conduct continues to be a problem for that player, the Overseer may sideline them out of the game or just the inning. Overseers may only be bribed with friendliness, sportsmanship, or money.

At the end of the game the Overseer will rate both teams based on conduct. The following guidelines, taken from The USA Ultimate Conduct Committee are to be used:
