PUL Specific Rules & Policies

PUL has a few key rules that are league specific, namely:

Team Ratio

PUL’s summer league is officially 4M/3F. Teams may play with the ratio of 4F/3M, but the other team is not required to match. Teams must have a minimum of two women and a maximum of four persons of the same gender on the field at any time.

Footblocks (REVISED)

Just to clarify that as of SUMMER 2013 PUL allows footblocks in all leagues in accordance with 11th edition rules. Please, though, try not to be an overly zealous d-bag and break anyone’s hand. This is recreation, after all.

Carbon Flip

PUL has replaced the standard pre-game flip with the Carbon Flip, which awards all the normal benefits of winning the flip to the team that has the most number of players who DID NOT drive to the field.


As of 2016 PUL has officially adopted a rule of no timeouts within five (5) minutes of a game’s time cap for league play.

Summer Playoff Subs Policy

Players that are added during the season must play at least four games with the same team to qualify for playoffs. Players coming back from injury may be treated to a different assessment. Teams who knowingly abuse the tenets of this policy may be disqualified from playoffs.
