Summer Leagues 2022 ~ Rules

Valley of the Sun Ultimate


We will play by the USA Ultimate's 2020-21 Rules. For specifics on these rules, you can visit USAU's Rules Page.

League Specific Rules

Gender Ratio

Both Summer Session 1 leagues are mixed leagues. When 5+ woman-matching players are present, preferred ratio is 4 man-matching players and 3 woman-matching players. Otherwise, 5/2, genzone dictates.


At the start of each game after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens with the winner selecting which end zone is the "genzone." At the start of each point, the team that end zone chooses the personnel ratio, in this case 4/3 or 5/2.



Time Caps


Pull Rule

If disc lands on the playing field (or end zone)

If disc lands out (player has following options)

  1. call middle (if disc goes out the side in FRONT of the brick line) - take disc to the middle at the point where the disc last crossed the perimeter line
  2. call brick (if disc goes out anywhere BEHIND the brick line) - take the disc to the middle at the brick line (15 yards)
  3. play from the closest spot on the playing field proper (not the end zone) to where the disc last went out
    • side line if in front of the end zone
    • closest front corner if behind the end zone and went out the side
    • straight up to the line if it goes out the back

If disc lands in and ROLLS out
