For more about Ocean Shores:
This is a mixed tournament with a 3:2, 2:3 (men:women) gender ratio. One half of each game will be played 3:2, and the other half will be played 2:3. Captains will decide which half has which ratio after the lag for pull. Please roster your teams accordingly!
Each team gets 2 time outs per game. Time outs are 60 seconds long.
To determine Pull, Color, and gender ratio playing Lag the disc is recommended! The captains of each team will choose a representative to “Lag” the disc. One representative of each team will throw the disc from the back of the end zone, trying to get it closer to the back of the opposite end zone without the disc going over or landing on the line.
The stall count is to 10.
The two point rule will be used: Two points are scored when a player throws a completed pass from within their defending endzone to within their attacking endzone.
Brick mark is determined by the player taking one standing leap from the center of the front the end zone.
Foot blocks are not allowed.
All players must be 18 years of age or older in order to participate.
