Middle School

Altitude Ultimate is focusing on creating opportunities for middle school students to find opportunities to play ultimate. From clinics to leagues to trainings, we have all sorts of things in the works to expand our outreach to kids ages 11-14.

U15 (Middle School) FORMAT/SETUP & RULES

U15 (Middle School) is a 5v5 setup....helps keep kids involved and not overwhelmed...many states are doing this including Colorado the last few years...here is what is different:

  • Number of players on the field: 5v5

  • Field size (yards): Length: 50  Width: 30  End Zone: 15  Bricks: 10

  • Game Length: Game Total: 11 points and/or Hard Time Cap 50 minutes

  • Pre-stall: NONE

  • Layout on Defense: Allowed without contact. Any contact with another player before, during, or after the play is considered a receiving foul. This includes incidental contact that did not affect the play. Emphasis must be placed by coaches on proper technique and decision-making. 

  • Disc Space: Marking distance extended from disc width to arms-length.

  • Zone defense: No zone 'cup' on the mark.  Switching and Poaching OK.

  • Dropped Pull: No turnover. The defense gets to set up and check in the disc.

These scrimmage days will consist of one hour of coach-led drills and skills development followed by one hour of gameplay.
