Safety Rules

Prior to playing, players will be required to use the Javelin app to screen for covid-19 symptoms. This app, called javelin Sports Inc, will also help with contact tracing if needed. In order to increase the safety of all players, players are not allowed to participate if

  • They have covid-19 and have not received the approval of public health to return to sport/work
  • They show any symptoms of covid-19
  • they have been in contact with anyone that is diagnosed with Covid-19 and or is suspected of having Covid-19
  • they are playing in any other sports league or are part of a cohort for any other club or program where players are playing games against each other.  
  • they have travelled outside of Canada in the last 14 days
  • they have not been abiding by the Ministry of health rule of having a social circle of 10 people
  • they are still in high school or younger.
  • Been to any Brampton parties

Please consult Ontario public Health to determine when you can return to sport if any of these apply to you. Generally waiting 14 days is the norm.

Contact telehealth Ontario if you have any questions. +1 866-797-0000


Captain’ Responsibilities

  • Put the scheduled games from the Duc website into the Javelin app so that players can do their wellness checks.
  • At each game check that each player has completed the survey from home and then check them again yourself. This is very important as it will keep us all safe and also allow us to do contact tracing if necessary.
  • At each game set up cones in your endzone only.
  • Work the scoreboard (Ideally minimal people should work the scoreboard)
  • Set up your team on the DUC website and add players. Add players by going to team settings and clicking on select players. Then in the blue box, select add player to roster, the select the season as 2020. Type in each person's name and choose them to be put on the team. If you cannot find them in the list then they have either not bought their memberships or you are spelling their names incorrectly. Once you have added all your players select next. If they are returning players, the system will detect that and choose their profile automatically otherwise it will create a new one. 
  • Ensure that all players have purchased their membership and are on your team roster before playing in any games. 
  • Ensure that players maintain proper social distancing both on and off the field
  • Ensure that the disc is sanitized every few points.
  • Ensure that all garbage (wipes etc) are disposed of properly
  • Agree with the other captain on an official clock for timing the game. Remind the other captain when there is only 5 minutes left. End at the time as indicated on the schedule.


Rule Modifications

  • Stalls are counted by the marker once they are 2 meters away from the thrower.
  • Disc space is 2 meters when marking the thrower but only 1 meter when marking a cutter. Making a cut too close to one of your players so that the defense cannot maintain the 1 meter distance should be avoided and can be classified as a pick.
  • If the disc is in the air, then players hands may end up closer than 1 meter but contact must be avoided.
  • If a legal stall count has been started then end zone passes, for a point, must be at least 2 meters in length.
  • All checks are done by tapping the ground. If a check requires the defense to signal that they are ready before the disc comes back into play then the player should wait until the player says they are ready. An example of this would be after a time out or a call on the field.  For checks, when there has been no call, for example when you are putting the disc in play after a turn over or an out of bounds throw you do not need the defense to say they are ready. 
  • There should be no contact between players. Contact is a foul. Just be happy that we are playing and do everything you can to make the play without any contact. 
  • players should try to mark the same player (when possible).
  • Players need to bring their own sanitizer and should sanitizer their hands after each point.
  • Discs should be exchanged for sanitized discs whenever it is convenient. As an example, if a disc is thrown out of bounds on the sidelines then a new disc could be put into play. When players are sanitizing their hands they should also sanitize a disc.
  • When new discs are introduced the player receiving the disc can ask for a stoppage in stall counting if the disc is still wet with sanitizer.
  • Masks are not required but are fine to wear. Players wearing masks should avoid touching the front of the mask while playing and if they do they should sanitize their hands.
  • Substitute players, not on the team, are not allowed as this could increase the number of players beyond the allowed 50
  • Games are 55 minutes in length and there is no score cap. Players should immediately leave the building when their game is over.
  • No high fives or unnecessary touching
  • Players on the sidelines must get back at least 2 meters when a thrower is near the sideline.
  • The ratio is 4 :2. If teams opt to play 3:3 the other team does not have to match.
  • When players are subbing there is no tag. A new player may enter the field from anywhere on their sideline once the other player is off the field. If two players enter by accident and it affects the play then follow the rules below.


Regular Indoor rules

The 11 edition rules are followed except for the rules outlined below.

  1. Contact is to be avoided in every way possible.
  2. The teams will play 6 on 6 with a ratio of 4 men to 2 women. Teams must have a minimum of 5 players, of which 1 must be a women, to avoid defaulting. If a team plays with more than 2 women on the field the other team does not have to match.
  3. Teams should start their game as soon as possible and games end on the buzzer or at 5 minutes to the hour if the buzzer is not set.
  4. The game starts with a pull, with each team starting at the back line of the end zone. A 10 yard brick should be used for out of bounds pulls.
  5. There is no pull after a point. When a team scores, the scoring player acknowledges that he/she has scored a goal by raising the disc above their head and then placing the disc on the ground at that spot. The offensive player has 8 seconds to put the disc into play from where it was placed by the scoring team. (They cannot walk the disc up to the front goal line). If the offense is taking too long, a defensive player, within 3 m of the disc, can announce delay of game and loudly count to 8.
  6. During regular play, if the disc goes out of the back or sides of the end zone the offensive player must bring the disc to the front of the endzone directly ahead of where it went out. If the disc is turned over and lands in the endzone the offensive player can either play it from where it is or bring the disc to the front of the end zone.
  7. Stall counts are to 8 rather than 10. The disc is considered stalled down upon the utterance of the ‘e’ in eight. Contested stalls come in on “stall 7".
  8. Substitutions are made on the fly by tagging. The tag should occur within 1 meter of the side line and within 5 meters of the half way point of the field.
  9. Foot blocks, whether attempted or successful, are not allowed and are considered a foul. Captains can agree to use foot-blocks.
  10. Each team gets one 60-second time out but it cannot be used in the last 5 minutes of the game.
  11. There is no overtime during regular season play. If the score is tied when the buzzer goes then that is the final score. If the disc is in the air when the buzzer goes then it is still considered live and should be played.
  12. Two Roster Limit: In most circumstances, a player should only appear on one roster. The exception agreed upon by league captains is that if you happen to be a paid rostered member of two teams, then you are allowed to play for both teams. Players should not be on more than two rosters.
  13. If the offensive team is found to be playing with more than six players (or the agreed upon gender-ratio), it is an automatic turnover and all players return to where they were at the time the error was made (guided by what is most fair). If a point was scored with more than 6 players on the field, the point does not count.
  14. If the defensive team is playing with more than six players, the offensive team retains possession (even if the disc was turned over) and the additional defensive player(s) leave the playing field immediately.
