Rules of Goaltimate

  • Fields will have a single hoop, clear zone, and out-of-bounds lines. Fields dimensions: 52 yds by 26 yds, clear zone is 10 yds deep.
  • Games will be played for a set time. A single horn will signal the start of the games and two horns will signal the end of games. During regular season, games will end once the time has elapsed; games can end in a tie.
  • Teams play 4 v 4, with hockey-style subbing (An incoming player must tag hands of a player coming off at the sideline). This league will be played with an on-field 2:2 ratio at all times.
  • The stall count is to 5 (starting at Stall one and ending at the F of five) and can be counted by any person on the field from anywhere. (Double teams are allowed, as is counting a stall without anyone on the mark.)
  • One point is awarded for a completed pass that travels through the hoop and is caught in the end zone by your teammate. Two points are awarded if the disc is thrown between cross-matching players (e.g. MM to FM, FM to MM) from behind the clear line into the endzone. The disc must fully cross the plane of the goal during reception to count as a goal. You cannot release the disc from inside the goal; if you do and the pass is completed, it is not a goal but you still have possession.
  • Whenever a turnover happens, the possession changes and the new offensive team must clear the disc by advancing it past the clear line, and can then attack the goal. Make it take it rules apply, so if you score your team must clear the disc and then you can attack again.
  • The disc can only go through the hoop in 1 direction. If you throw it through backward (from behind the hoop, towards the clear line), it’s a turnover.
  • Setting static screens is legal (think basketball). Be mindful when setting screens of the velocity of other players and whether you’re putting yourself somewhere dangerous to yourself or the player you’re trying to screen.
  • Offensive players may only stay in the end zone for 3 seconds at a time. After 3 seconds they must leave the end zone and return in order to be an eligible scoring receiver.
  • Goaltending is not allowed. Defenders must be within 10 feet of an offensive player and actively defending that player to remain in the end zone.
