Ultimate Frisbee (September)
The object of the game is to score points by passing the disc to a player in the opposing end zone, similar to an end zone in football or rugby. Players may only move one foot while holding the disc.

 

Flag Football (October-November)
The basic rules of the game are similar to those of the mainstream game (often called "tackle football" for contrast), but instead of tackling players to the ground, the defensive team must remove a flag or flag belt from the ball carrier ("deflagging") to end a down. In most organized play, players wear a belt.

 

Dodgeball  (January)
This typically starts soon after the return from Thanksgiving break and before Christmas break. This is a good way to get a group of friends together to use both throwing and dodging tactics to survive the round. Don't let it be you who is the first one out.

 

Basketball (February-March)
Basketball is a team sport. Two teams of five players each try to score by shooting a ball through a hoop elevated 10 feet above the ground. The game is played on a rectangular floor called the court, and there is a hoop at each end. The court is divided into two main sections by the mid-court line. If the offensive team puts the ball into play behind the mid-court line, it has ten seconds to get the ball over the mid-court line. If it doesn't, then the defense gets the ball. Once the offensive team gets the ball over the mid-court line, it can no longer have possession of the ball in the area in back of the line. If it does, the defense is awarded the ball.

 

Volleyball (April-May)
Held every Spring this event gives students an opportunity to form teams that are co-ed instead of the normal gendered based teams.
