NSUT game rules
- Tournament follows normal indoor rules with a few exceptions.
-A fail to catch opening pull is a turnover. Either make a catch or let the disc drop to field.
- The pull is not allowed to hit the back wall higher than 3 metres (marked). If so, offense can start from the brick-point. A brick-handsignal must be shown before picking up the disc in case it is carried to the brick-point. Starting from own endzone line is naturally also allowed. If the pull hits the field, receiving team has an option to start playing from the spot the disc first hit the ground.
- The Callahan rule is included, meaning that the defensive team can score a goal with an intercepted and catched disc at their offensive endzone. This will directly score and no further play is needed to close the point.
- Game time is 25 minutes, except open final (40 minutes).
- Hard point cap is 11 points, except open final (13 points).
- The games have no half-time, except open final (3 minutes).
- If time runs out, the point in progress will be played, whichafter the new point cap is one point higher than the leading teams score. However, if the difference is 3 points or more, the game will end immediately.
- There is one time-out per game, so that is per game, not per team. Time-out can be taken by either team. Time-out is 30 seconds.
- New point starts when the previous point is scored. Time between points is already a part of the new point. Receiving team has 25 seconds, defense 35 seconds. The official will give a warning after 15 seconds.
Team captains job is to make sure their team is familiar with these rules.
