Ann Arbor Ultimate Rule Modifications

Beginning January 1, 2020, our default rule set is based on the latest rule set offered by USA Ultimate. You can find more information on the USA Ultimate website:

Recreational divisions play with our default rule set, but add the following modifications:

  1. Zone defense is not allowed during the first 3 games of each division. Game captains may modify this during games. The spirit of the rule is to be inclusive and accomodating to new players (limit confusion, encourage participation).
  2. Captains may call instructional timeouts at any time (e.g. to provide in-the-moment rules clarification). These do not count toward the normal allotment of timeouts.

Competitive divisions play by our default rule set with no rule modifications.
