Foot blocks are in, but c’mon…

Just a reminder to all players: foot blocks are legal in the rules of ultimate, but dangerous if executed improperly. Remember, disc space is important: A full disc width between the handler and the line of any two points on the defenders body (no wrapping!). We’ve already had one broken hand, and would like to avoid any more.

Any foot block within that space should be considered a dangerous play, and called as such. Any other movement in that space is a violation, and can be called: marker steps back, and drops the count by two without stopping.

Captains are encouraged to discuss foot blocks before the game, and if there’s any concern about their safety, to ban them from that game (don’t turn over the disc, but treat as a violation as above).
