Schedule and Seedings:
Special 4v4 Rules
- In general, we play with all of the same rules as we’re accustomed to with 7v7. If something here doesn’t override those rules; default to them.
- The Stall is to 7 (rather than 10), starting with “Stalling One”. A stallout occurs on the first utterance of the “S” in “Seven” (rather than the “T” of “Ten”).
- For a Contested Stall, the stall count will come in at 5, saying “Stalling 6”). Note: this is just “back 2”, like the 7v7 rules.
For all Violations or Fouls that occur with the Stall Count above 3 - if the stall count would come in above 3 when restarting play, the stall count will instead come in at 3 (saying “Stalling 4”)
- As an example, we know that if a Pick is called when the stall-count is at 8, play will resume with the stall count dropping to 5, so the marker starts with “Stalling 6”. Here we’re just replacing 5 with 3, for all rules involving the stall count for travels, picks, fouls, etc…
- So if a Pick is called when the mark had already uttered “Five”, then play would restart with the stall at 3, saying “Stalling 4”.
- Each point starts with a Pull, and like 7v7: Offense should have one foot on their end-zone line, and the Defensive players should be behind their own end-zone line when the Pull is released.
However, the Brick rule is changed. For 4v4, if the pull lands out-of-bounds, or if the pull lands in-bounds but rolls out of bounds - the offense must take the disc at the Brick Mark. The offense does not have the option to pick up a disc that has touched out-of-bounds, they must walk the disc to the Brick Mark before starting play.
- Special Note: In the case of a pull that leaves the playing field proper immediately after leaving the puller’s hand, and never comes back into play - the starting point is still the Brick Mark. The offense does not have the option to put the disc in play where it last left the playing-field proper.
- The Brick Mark is centered on the field, at the Midfield mark on the field - so half-way between the two end-zones.
