Outdoor 7v7 Rules

New ratio rule:

Ratio Rule A is in effect.

The disc flip winner will determine the ratio they wish to start with (A).

Ratio will follow this pattern ABBAABBAABBAABBAA... (and halftime does not effect the pattern)

The ratio will rotate between (depending on the flip):



The term 'open' means that players do not need to indicate a gender.

Open = any player in the league

(could be man, woman, trans, self-defined, or players could prefer not to say)

Start/End Time: 

Summer starts at 6:30pm with a 15 minute grace period. If the team you are playing does not have a full team by 6:45pm, 7 players stand on the line and begin counting a point against them for every 5 minutes they are late (i.e. score will be 1-0 at 6:50 pm). If a team cannot field 5 players (including 2 women) by 7:00pm they will default the game, receive zero points and zero spirit points. End times vary throughout the summer (game to 15, sunset dictates, or hardcap at 8pm if field is booked afterwards). Please ensure captains agree on an end time BEFORE you start your game. This is extremely important in the month of August when we start to lose valuable game-time light. Check out this link to determine sunset times.
