Ann Arbor Ultimate Rule Modifications

Ann Arbor Ultimate plays using the 11th edition rules, with some modifications. For the full rules, see http://www.usaultimate.org/rules/

Competitive divisions (e.g. Summer Draft League, Winter League) plays by the 11th edition rules with no modifications.

Recreational divisions play by the 11th edition rules with these modifications:

  • There is no turnover on a dropped pull. Instead, defense gets to set up, like after a time out
  • No kick blocks are allowed within 5 feet of thrower.
  • Zone defenses are not allowed during first 3 games. This includes blatent poaching.
  • Captain instructional timeouts may be called as needed (e.g. to explain what "pick" means). These do not count towards the normal allotment of time outs.
