Ultimate COVID Rules
The Ultimate COVID rules were designed last fall by a working group of Massachusetts coaches and organizers. The rules will be followed by all New England high school and middle school teams in the spring of 2021.
- The stall count will be spoken by a designated Counter on the sideline, not by the player marking the disc.
- The player marking the disc must maintain a distance of no less than 2′ from the handler.
- When the disc is not in play, players must maintain 6′ social distance on the field.
- Players on the sidelines must maintain 6′ social distance.
