Frozen Disc Slam Tournament

We are excited to announce the FROZEN DISC SLAM TOURNAMENT! While we normally are hosting Ultimate Frisbee and Disc Golf leagues, we are changing it up to host something a bit more ridiculous! 

We are partnering with the Grand Rapids World of Winter to provide this excellent experience! 

No matter what your skill level is - come out to this FREE event. Sign up with a partner and have a great time! 

Never played? That's ok! It's a relatively simple game that allows us to be socially distanced AND very social! 

TOURNAMENT FORMAT:

Pre-register for your time slot. Only 10 teams maximum for each slot. Schedule will be determined upon arrival. Arrive 30 minutes prior to your scheduled time. Expect to play for 45 minutes! 
This is different than our traditional format as we are aiming to keep the total number of players small due to COVID protocols.

HOW TO PLAY:

Play consists of 4 players divided into teams of 2.

 

A team can score when the Thrower scores a direct hit with the target or their Deflector teammate deflects the thrown disc at the target. The Deflector can only bump the disc to redirect its flight, but cannot catch or hold the disc. Teams will alternate throwing and deflecting the discs.

 

Team A's Thrower starts by throwing the disc at the opposing target where their Delfector waits to assist. Team B then does the same. After both teams have thrown, the Delfectors become the Throwers, when you start the next round.

 

First team to reach a score of 21 points wins.

• Deflectors may not touch the goal in any way. It must remain free standing at all times to be legal.

• Deflectors can move anywhere within the playing area to redirect the disc, including in front of the target if necessary

SCORING:

  • Disc Deflection,  1 point

    • Your teammate deflects the disc to hit the side of the target.

  • Disc Direct Hit,  2 points

    • Disc hits the target on the fly without any teammate assistance.

  • Disc Slam,  3 points

    • Your teammate deflects the disc into the top opening of the target.

  • Unassisted Top Make,  10 points

    • Disc lands in the target's top opening on the fly without any teammate assistance.

  • Unassisted Gapper,  Automatic Win

    • Disc lands in the target's front gap on the fly without any teammate assistance.

  • You must get exactly 21 points. If you go over, you must go down the same amount of points you just scored.
