WFDF Gender Ratio Rule ‘A’ Variation for Speedpoint:
For example: Team A wins the flip and starts on defense with 3 female-matching players and 2 male-matching players. This ratio stands for the entire first half. After halftime at :30, the ratio switches to the reverse; 3 male-matching and 2 female-matching players, and this ratio stands for the entire second half.
