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/4x4-rules

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:

 This past weekend Anchor, Nova Scotia's mixed ultimate team, claimed gold at the Canadian Ultimate Championship in Saskatoon, with a thrilling universe point victory over the fifth seeded Crash. Anchor entered the tournament as underdogs with an initial seeding of 7th place, and then proceeded to go undefeated in the tournament, with big victories including beating the second seeded Banana Cutters in pool play (14-13), the fourth seeded Bunny Thugs in the quarter-finals (12-10), and the third seeded Battleship in the semi-finals (14-10). Congratulations on a well deserved title!
