3.     Soft Cap. Signaled by one horn.  Finish current point then play to the highest score +2.
4.     2 points if the disc is caught with the player’s hat in the end zone.
5.     Hard cap.  Signaled by two horns ten minutes later.  Finish current point then only continue playing if the score is tied.

8.     You may substitute up to two players during a time-out.
9.     SPECIAL HAT RULE: You are not an offensive player without your hat on your head.  If your hat falls off, you are now just a very tall blade of grass.  You can still get a D without your hat on, but make sure not to catch your D’s unless your hat is on your head, or else it’s an instant turnover.

Field water (bring your own bottles)  and snacks will be provided on Saturday and Sunday.

With our disc order from Aria we get extra discs donated to SCYU.  Support youth ultimate while having fun!  It’s that easy!

Make sure to bring your most creative hats!!! You are welcome to wear a simple baseball hat but that is LAME so step up your game!
