in 10 Simple Rules
- The Field -- A
rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by
40 yards, with end zones 25 yards deep.
- Initiate Play -- Each point begins with both teams lining
up on the front of their respective end zone line. The defence throws
("pulls") the disc to the offence. A regulation game has seven
players per team.
- Scoring -- Each time the offence completes a pass in the
defence’s end zone, the offence scores a point. Play is initiated after each
- Movement 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
- Change of possession -- When a pass in not completed (e.g. out
of bounds, drop, block, interception), the defence immediately takes possession
of the disc and becomes the offence.
- Substitutions -- Players not in the game may replace players in
the game after a score and during an injury timeout.
- Non-contact -- No physical contact is allowed between players.
Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.
- Fouls -- 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.
- Self-Refereeing -- Players are responsible for their own foul
and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.
- Spirit 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.
