We use the USA Ultimate 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate for all DiscNW leagues, including Spring League, with the following additions, changes, and clarifications.
Each team has two team time-outs per half. Time outs should not exceed 90 seconds. Time outs are permitted in the cap. And remember, 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 this 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” on this page.
