League Specific Rules & Information

Game Schedule

Mixed Division On-Field Personnel Ratio

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

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


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.
