the field

70 yrds by 40 yrds with 25 yrds deep endzones

starting play

teams line up across the front of their endzones, an the team with the disc pulls to the other team

Movement of the disc

offensive team passes the frisbee to teammates. you can't run with the disc. only one defender can be on a player at a time, and the others have to be at least 10 feet away

stall count

the defender counts to ten and the player with the disc has to throw it before they finish

turnover (change of possession)

if a pass in incomplete, or the stall count is finished, the opposite team gets the frisbee


when the offensive team catches the frisbee inside the endzone, they score a point


no physical contact is allowed, and there can be no picks and screens


if a player comes into contact with another player, that player calls a foul and they either start the play over if they disagree, or they resume play as if possession was retained


players are responsible for their own foul and line calls and they resolve their own problems

ulitmate's philosophy is sportsmanship and fair play


an impressive, but failing, diving attempt to catch the frisbee


standing in the way of your teammates to prevent good cuts

slow down, be patient, and wait for the game to reorganize
