  • Games consist of two 20-minute halves with a running clock.
  • A 3-minute overtime period will be used if a game ends in a tie.


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

During 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 eight players per team.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Common Foul

  • 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.
  • Players are responsible for their own foul and line calls. Players resolve their own disputes.
  • Non-contact: No physical contact is allowed between players. Picks and screens are also prohibited. A foul occurs when contact is made.
