The schedule is dependent on how many teams register and will come out shortly after registration closes. No games will start earlier than 8 AM (no teams from outside HRM will play in the early slots) and no games will go later than 6 PM.
RULES AND FORMAT
The format is MIXED, 4 v 4, SPEED POINT. Contrary to the name, Speed Point has a short stoppage between points for line changes. There are pulls only at the start of each half, and there is no subbing on the fly allowed (as opposed to Continuous).
You can read more about the rules here (two exceptions are described below): https://www.ocua.ca/
These rules are used by Ultimate Canada in the National Indoor Championships with two notable exceptions, which were amended in the Canadian 4's Ultimate Championships tournament manual:
1. The gender ratio will stay at 2:2 for the duration of the game. Offense does not have the option to set 3:1 on any point, UNLESS it has been discussed and agreed upon between coaches prior to the game starting.
2. The Contact Call is in effect. A description can be found here:
