Rules of Play

  • We use the  USA Ultimate 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate for all DiscNW leagues, including Summer Hat League, with the following additions, changes, and clarifications.
  • Each team has two team time-outs per half. Time outs should not exceed 90 seconds.
  • Games are played to 15 points, with a margin of at least two goals or until a cap is reached. The point cap is 17. There is no soft cap in Summer Hat League. The hard time cap begins 1 hour and 45 minutes after scheduled game start time.
  • Teams mirror at halftime - the second half begins with a reversal of the initial choices regarding the team to receive the pull and which end zone they defend.
  • The Contact Rule can be used by mutual agreement of the Captains. The default rule for this League is not to use the Contact Rule. For a definition of the contact rule, see the second bullet point under “Experimental Rules” here.
