    Ultimate Frisbee Rules

    Initiate Play: defensive team throws the frisbee off to the offensive team
     
    Scoring: catch the frisbee in the end zone to score; initiate play after a point is scored
     
    Movement: pass the frisbee in any direction to a teammate; can't run or take any steps while holding the frisbee, only pivot one foot
     
    Time: only have 10 seconds to throw the frisbee; defensive guard counts out loud
     
    Change of Possession: if the pass is incomplete (dropped, blocked, intercepted, out of bounds)
     
    Foul: no physical contact allowed (no picks/screens); if a foul disrupts possession, the play resumes as if the possession was retained
