Basic Rules of the game

1. 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 offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

2. Scoring - Each time the offense completes a pass in the defence’s end zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated after each score.

3. 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 stall count.

4. 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 offense.

5. Substitutions - Players not in the game may replace players in the game after a score and during an injury timeout.

6. Non-contact - No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made. One player to mark one player. No double team.

7. Disc space between players - Thrower has the right to initiate a one-arm leng and one disc space distance between thrower and defender.

8. 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.

9. 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.

*In the event of tie, teams will take turns to throw the disc towards the first line of the end zone. The disc nearest to the line wins.
