WFDF to Establish an Athletes’ Commission at WUGC
15 May 2012
The purpose of the WFDF Athletes’ Commission is to promote open communication with, and solicit feedback from, flying disc athletes, and give them a formal role in the decision-making process of WFDF. The WFDF Athletes’ Commission will have as its main focus the issues facing athletes in the sport of Ultimate, as this is our largest disc sport constituency and the one that is involved in the World Games. This three person group will be elected by the participating athletes during the WFDF World Ultimate and Guts Championship this July in Japan, and the Chair of the commission will be a non-voting observer at all WFDF board meetings. To be eligible, a candidate must be a participant in the current World Championship or have participated in a World Championship within the previous four years and must submit their application to the WFDF Executive Director no later than June 7, 2012.
