League Specific Rules

Mixed Division On-Field Personnel Ratio for Spring League 2023

Teams are formed with and play on the field with a specified personnel ratio of man-matching and woman-matching players which will be set in the league rules according to actual registration numbers.

(Updated: 3/30/23) Default ratio for Mixed Division, Spring 2023 is 3/4 or 4/3 as determined by "genzone." If the attendance of both teams is not balanced, the captains should take this into account and agree how to handle it, possibly by playing the problematic ratio less or not at all.


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 is at the genzone chooses the personnel ratio (3/4 or 4/3).

Open Division, Spring League 2023

No personnel ratio. Woman-matching players may play in this league, but there is no requirement for teams to put woman-matching players on the field at any time.
