# Outdoor Rules

## Timeout

Each team has one 90 second timeout per half.

Any timeouts called in the final 5 minutes of a game, or when the team doesn’t have any remaining timeouts, are treated as uncontested offensive fouls (i.e. stall count reached plus one, to a maximum of 9).

## Half Time

Half time occurs when one team has scored half of the point cap rounded up and lasts 5 minutes (i.e., in a game to 13, halftime occurs when the first team reaches 7 points. In a game to 15, it’s at 8 points).

## Point Cap

13 for 1h10m games

15 for 1h25m and 1h30m games

## Game End

We deviate from the official rules due to requiring games to end as close to on time as possible. Games are to end when the first of the following occurs:

- When point cap is reached
**OR** - When the game’s scheduled end time occurs (Time Cap), regardless of what time the game starts. When this happens, the game ends at whichever of the following occurs first:
- The next point is scored (without turnover)
**OR** - The next turnover

- The next point is scored (without turnover)

## Gender Ratio

For co-ed leagues, Ratio Rule A *(“prescribed* rule”*)* will be in effect:

At the start of the game, after the first disc flip, an additional disc flip happens with the winner selecting the gender ratio for the first point. For the second and third points the ratio must be be the opposite of the first point. For the fourth and fifth points the ratio must be the same as the first point. This pattern of alternating the ratio every two points repeats until the end of the game. Hal time has no impact on the pattern.
