We play by USA Ultimate's rule set. For specifics on these rules, you can visit USAU's Rules Page.

League Specific Rules

Mixed Division On-Field Personnel Ratio

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.

Default ratio for all games is 5 man-matching players/2 woman-matching players.

Genzone (see below) may dictate 4/3 ratio in any game in which EACH team meets one of these criteria:

If a team is low on man-matching players, captains can try be more accommodating, while remaining fair to both teams and all players.

Genzone (see below) may dictate 3 man-matching/4 woman-matching in any game in which EACH team meets one of these criteria:

Genzone

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.
