Each team gets three attempts  to complete a long distance throw and catch with no time limit.

A “free start” is allowed, meaning the dog may cross the throwing line before the disc is released.  Only the longest successful catch of the three attempted throws will count toward event points.  One half point will be awarded for each yard of distance recorded on the team’s longest catch.  The throwing line for women will be 15 yards downfield from the throwing line for men.

The penalty for a foot fault (stepping on or over the throwing line) will be a five yard deduction from that successful catch.
