A rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field
is 70 yards by 40 yards, with end zones 25 yards deep.
Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their
respective end zone line. The defense throws ("pulls") the disc to
the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.
Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense's end zone,
the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.
of the Disc:
The disc may be advanced in any direction by completing a pass to a
teammate. Players may not run with the disc. The person with the
disc ("thrower") has ten seconds to throw the disc. The defender
guarding the thrower ("marker") counts out the stall count.
When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block,
interception), the defense immediately takes possession of the disc
and becomes the offense.
Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a
score and during an injury timeout.
No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens
are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.
When a player initiates contact on another player a foul occurs.
When a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the
possession was retained. If the player committing the foul disagrees
with the foul call, the play is redone.
Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players
resolve their own disputes.
of the Game:
Ultimate stresses sportsmanship and fair play. Competitive play is
encouraged, but never at the expense of respect between players,
adherence to the rules, and the basic joy of play.
