News & Announcements

Posted on February 23, 2015
  • Monday's March 2nd-23rd. Chicago Indoor Sports 6:45-10:30
  • You play a strictly timed game as opposed to playing to a point total. No point caps, or win by two, etc. you stop playing when the buzzer sounds (or once discs already in the air, before the buzzer goes off, are caught), the point does not necessarily end with a goal. 
  • There are two timed halves.
  • Substitute on the fly.
  • No pulls other than to start the game and to start the second half. When a player scores they drop the disc. The other team picks up the disc and checks it in on the front goal line. 
  • A smaller field and fewer players (5 on 5)
  • Shorter stall counts to keep things moving (7)
  • Walls are in bounds so you can ricochet throws off of them
  • Scores are caught in the goalie box (not the actual net, but the lined box in front of the goal) which means you can score from three sides of the endzone!
  • Two 30 sec time outs per team per half. The team with the disc can call a regular time out which allows no subbing or a "subbing time out". If they choose to sub on a time out it needs to be announced as soon as the disc is dropped, which will allow the other team to substitute as well. Any number of people on either team can sub during a "subbing time out" but gender ratio should not change. If the team calling a timeout does not sub the opposing team can not sub. 
  • No time outs in the last 2:00 minutes of either half. 
  • 2 POINT PLAY - Cross Gender Endzone to Endzone score.
