Ultimate in 10 Simple Rules

The Field: A rectangular shape with end zones at each end. A regulation field is 70 yards by 40 yards, with end zones 25 yards deep.

Initiate Play: Each point begins with both teams lining up on the front of their respective end zone line. The defense throws (“pulls”) the disc to the offense. A regulation game has seven players per team.

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

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.

Change of Possession: When a pass in not completed (e.g. out of bounds, drop, block, interception),the defense immediately takes possession of the disc and becomes the offense.

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

Non-contact: No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.

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.

Self-Officiating: Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.

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.

OUR YEAR AT A GLANCE

Fall—
We will host 3-4 recruitment events around the state during the fall, beginning in October. Check our EVENTS page to participate in Columbus Day Ultimate (October) and the November Nines tournament. We hope that you will participate in those near you, and encourage players to come and learn/teach and share the sport with new players. On your campus, we wish that your will encourage new players to join a weekly Ultimate experience. The fall should be dedicated teaching and recruitment of players, in anticipation of a Winter League and our annual STATE Tournament in the spring.

Winter—
We are planning to host league play during the winter months (January – March), in DFW area, Austin and Houston. Players will register as individuals and league teams will be drafted, considering experience height and gender. In the past, we have expected captains to bring a team to league play. however, we hope that drafting teams will help build teams on more campuses. Send a representative to league play! Take back to your school what you learn each week. Also, we hope that those who are playing college will return throughout the year to continue to build teams at your Alma Mater. College Players will be permitted to play as guest players, should they be in town for the weekend. Play will be hosted on SUNDAY afternoons, and cost will be minimal…about $40 per player. A team jersey and an Ultimate disc will be provided to league participants.

Spring—
We will again host our annual STATE tournament in the spring. To encourage growth and learning, roster rules allow recent alumni to participate as players in this tournament. First year college players may return to play in the annual tournament for their ALMA MATER.

Summer—
We will host camps and clinics in association with various Universities and Community organizations. High School Players may find summer volunteer/employment opportunities in developing youth Ultimate programs in their communities.

Spirit of the Game

Ultimate relies on a spirit of sportspersonship, which places the responsibility of fair play on the individual.
Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of the mutual bond of respect between players; and, never with an intention to abuse the agreed upon rules of the game, or destroy the pure joy of play.
Actions that go against these principles may hasten the day where Players no longer control the game.
Playing by the Spirit-of the Game will help Ultimate remain a game where each of us is free to decide, for themselves, what fair play means to him or her.
Remember, no set of rules can replace a players respect for one another and the Spirit of the Game.


Ultimate!    Play the game…Live the Spirit!
