Rules

The 11th Edition of the Rules of Ultimate has been approved by a vote of the UPA membership. The DiscNW Leagues Committee has decided to use these rules for all DiscNW events in 2007. DiscNW will provide Spring League Coaches with a complimentary rule book. We also advise all players to review the online documents to familiarize themselves with the new changes.

Comments, questions, complaints about this decision should be directed to the Executive Director at .

Players on a team must all attend the same school. Additional rules and policies will be posted prior to the start of the season. Coaches will have the opportunity to weigh in on rules at the pre-season Coaches Meeting.

Eligibility

The DiscNW Eligibility Rules are up and can be found at www.discnw.org/youth/eligibility.html. The eligibility rules established here are intended to apply for all official DiscNW youth events including leagues and tournaments. The two principles guiding these rules are fairness and growth. Inclusiveness, while important, is not the overriding principle at play. Teams that are school based with support of teachers, administrators, and parents stand the best chance of stability and survival over the long term. As DiscNW is an ever-evolving organization, the eligibility rules are subject to change in future years to further the goals of the group.
