PLAYERS Each team will be comprised of 6 players




    All decisions on forfeit times are at the sole discretion of the on-site Intramural supervisor.


    ; Only two club Frisbee players are permitted to play on any given team.


    ; No metal cleats or bare feat. Pinnies will be provided at games if teams cannot be told apart.


    ; Each team will consist of 7 players.

    ; Coed teams will be comprised of either 4 men and 3 women or 4 women and 3 men.

    ; You need a minimum of 5 players to start a game (3/2 for co-ed).

The Match

    ; Each match will consist of two 20 minute halves with a five minute halftime. The team with the most goals at the end of the second half wins.

The Field

    ; Each goal (or end-zone) will be 20 yards long by the width of the football field. The playing field will be 70 yards long by the width of the football field respectively.

Start of the Game/Half

    ; A coin toss will determine who receives the Frisbee to begin the game. The winner of the toss can choose whether to receive or “pull” the Frisbee to begin the game. The team to receive the Frisbee at the start of the game will “pull” the Frisbee to begin the second half.


    ; If a game is tied at the end of regulation, a four minute overtime will ensue. A coin toss will determine who receives the Frisbee at the beginning of the first overtime period.

    ; If the game remains tied at the end of this overtime there will be a final two minute overtime where the first team to score a goal wins the match. Another coin toss with determine who receives the Frisbee at the beginning of the second and final overtime period.

    ; If a goal is not scored by either team in these two minutes then the game is called a tie.


    ; Ultimate Frisbee is a non-contact sport. Contact will not be tolerated.

    ; Each time the offense completes a pass in the defense’s end-zone, the offense scores a point. Play is initiated

    after each score.

    ; After each score, a “pull” ensues where the team who scored throws the Frisbee from their end-zone to the other

    team. During the “pull” players on the throwing team are free to move anywhere in their defending end-zone, but

    may not cross the goal line until the disc is released. Players on the receiving team must stand with one foot on

    their defending goal line without changing position relative to one another.

    ; The perimeter lines are out-of-bounds. A disc is out of bounds when it first contacts an out-of-bounds area or

    contacts anything which is out-of-bounds. For a player to be considered in-bounds after gaining possession of

    the disc, the second point of contact with the ground must be completely in-bounds.

    ; Players are not allowed to run into the end-zone to score.

    ; A player who has jumped is entitled to land at the same spot without hindrance by opponents. ; All games will be self officiated. The intramural office will provide scorekeepers for the games. ; PROTESTS: Rule interpretations and player eligibility are the only protests that will be considered. Rule protests

    must be filed at the time a question occurs, and will be settled at the time by the supervisor on duty. ; 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. Seconds must be counted off “one Mississippi, two Mississippi, three Mississippi, etc.”

The Thrower

    ; The thrower must establish a pivot foot and may not change that pivot foot until the throw is released.

    ; The thrower has the right to pivot in any direction. However, once the marker has established a legal defensive

    position, the thrower may not pivot into him/her.

    ; If the disc is dropped by the thrower without defensive interference, it is considered and incomplete pass.

    ; The thrower may throw the disc in any way he/she wishes.

The Marker (Defenseman)

    ; Only one player may guard the thrower at any one time; that player is the marker.

    ; The marker may not straddle the pivot foot of the thrower.

    ; There must be at least one disc’s diameter between the upper bodies of the thrower and the marker at all times.

    ; The marker cannot position his/her arms in such a manner as to restrict the thrower from pivoting.

The Reciever

    ; Bobbling to gain control of the disc is permitted.

    ; After catching a pass, the receiver is only allowed the fewest number of steps required to come to a stop and

    establish a pivot foot.

    ; If the receiver is running as he/she catches the disc, the receiver may throw a pass before the third ground

    contact after catching the disc without coming to a complete stop.


    ; Fouls are the result of physical contact between opposing players.

    ; The player who was fouled calls the foul.

    ; If the thrower is fouled in the act of throwing and the pass is completed, the foul is automatically declined and play

    continues without interruption.

    ; If the marker is fouled in the act of throwing and the pass is not completed the Frisbee remains with the team who

    was fouled.

    ; Violations consist of traveling with the disc, attempting to strip the disc, or double-teaming an opponent.

    ; Picks: No player may establish a position, or move in such a manner, so as to obstruct the movement of any

    player on the opposing team: TO DO SO IS A PICK. A pick is considered a violation, this will not be allowed.

    ; A player cannot strip another player of the Frisbee when it is in someone’s possession. Passes, however; may be

    hit or batted out of the air to the ground.

Possession Changes

    ; Changes of possession occur when a pass is not completed (dropped, hits the ground, falls out of bounds,

    blocked, intercepted). The possession change takes place at the spot of the foul, not at the spot of the Frisbee.


    ; Substitutions may take place only after a goal has been scored, or to replace an injured player.

Time Outs

    ; There will be one time out for each team per half. Timeouts must be called when the team calling it is in

    possession of the disc, or after a goal prior to the ensuing “pull.”


    ; Coed teams will be comprised of either 4 men and 3 women or 4 women and 3 men.

    ; You need a minimum of 5 players to start a game (3/2 for co-ed).
