In NSUT the game clock starts ALWAYS at even hours and half hours!
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 go over the lines higher than 2 metres. If so, offense can start from the brick-point (3 meters from the front line if not otherwise stated). 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 and womens final (40 minutes).
- Hard point cap is 11 points, except open and womens final (13 points).
- The games have no half-time, except open and womens final (3 minutes).
- If time runs out, the point in progress will be played, after which the new point cap is one point higher than the leading team’s score, unless the difference is then 3 points or more. In that case, 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.
- The game clock starts ALWAYS at even hours and half hours!
- One player may only play in one team and one series. If a team makes changes before the tournament to the roster it has given to the staff, those changes must be informed to the staff as soon as possible.
- If more than one team is tied after pool games, the following determines their rank: 1. games these teams have played against each other, 2. point-difference in the games these teams have played against each other, 3. point-difference in all games against common competitors, 4. goals scored in the games these teams have played against each other, 5. goals that the team has scored in total against common competitors in the pool games, 6. lottery
Team captain’s job is to make sure their team is familiar with these rules
