Disc Golf - Singles

Disc golf is similar to regular golf; however, instead of using golf clubs and balls aiming for a hole, Disc Golf players use golf discs and aim for a Disc Pole Hole, a pole extending up from the ground with chains and a basket where the disc lands.  The object of the game is to complete each hole in the fewest number of throws, starting from a tee area and finishing at the Disc Pole Hole.

Dodgeball is a game in which players on two teams try to throw large balls at each other while avoiding being hit themselves. In the United States, the game is typically played among children 6-12 in elementary school.

It is also popular in informal settings and is often played on a playground, in a gym, or in organized recreational leagues.

Flag Football

Flag Football offers a fun and fast paced way to play competitive football and stay in shape.  The sport of football that most people are accustomed to is tackle football, where the ball carrier is tackled to the ground by the defense.  In Flag Football, each player wears a flag belt around his/her waist which, when pulled off, is considered as a "tackle".  This non-contact version of football creates a safer playing environment for everyone who wishes to play, and with the various types of leagues offered, you can find the right team to fit your playing level.

Indoor Soccer

The most significant difference in play between outdoor soccer and indoor soccer is that the indoor field is surrounded by a wall instead of touch lines, resembling more of a hockey rink than a soccer pitch.  The ball can be played directly off the wall, which eliminates many frequent stoppages that would normally result for throw-ins, goal-kicks and corner-kicks, and generally results in a faster paced game.  The game is played with a Futsal ball rather than a regular soccer ball.  There is no better time to play than fresh off this past summer's World Cup, so sign up today as space is limited!

Wallyball

If you have any interest in a fast-paced indoor court sport, please read on.  This awesome sport adds a whole new dimension to the exciting game of Volleyball. The general concepts of Wallyball are very similar to indoor volleyball. Featured in a racquetball court, Wallyball provides the element of surprise as an ordinary volley can go a whole new direction with spiking the ball off the walls in many directions. Good Wallyball players use this as a key strategy to confuse and distract opponents
