News & Announcements
Flag Football Has Begun!
Over 200 flag football teams will compete in our 2014 season. Games began September 8th. A few things to remember before you head out to the turfs for your first game:
- NO POCKETS - double and triple-check that the shorts you are wearing do not have pockets. Also double check with your teammates that they remember as well
-UCF ID - also double-check everyone has their UCF Student ID with them as they aren't allowed to play without it
- Arrive Early - There is nothing worse than showing up late and finding out your team lost by forfeit. The parking lot gets full quickly, get there early
- Jerseys - You must wear matching jerseys with numbers. You can check jerseys out from building 320 between the turf fields or you can bring your own.
- Jewelry - Our jewelry policy is strict. Safety is our main priority so that watch, bracelet, necklace, earrings, etc must come off to play.

Knights in the Water Champions Crowned!
Six teams took on the 50 foot tarp this past weekend in our newest Intramural Sport, Human Curling. Teams of three competed by launching their teammates down our slip-and-slide runways, while one sat safely in an innertube. With five different point sections, teams tried their best to land their teammate in the 50 point zone. Sweeping Beauties were the favorite in pool play, with both SS OSSM and Scurvy Bandits close behind in total points. Once tournament play began however, Sweeping Beauties left no room for question and seized the title of Human Curling Champions.
Fifteen ships faced the high seas this past Saturday in our One Day Tournament, Battleship. Teams of three took on the waters of our RWC Lap Pool in hopes of claiming the title of Battleship Champions. With canoes as ships, teams battled to sink their opponents with only 2 buckets and a kickboard. As scores were close at the end of Pool Play, teams went into Tournament Play with the utmost excitement. After many close battles, team SS D-Force emerged as the last ship sailing and took home the ever-so coveted IM Champion T-Shirt. Thanks to all who played and made Battleship such a fun tournament!
Congratulations to team SS OSSM for gaining the crown of Knights of the Water last Saturday! Out of the 4 teams that competed in both tournaments this weekend, SS OSSM scored the most points overall in Battleship and Human Curling.

The History of 3v3 Soccer by Jamie Mineart
In spring of 2013, I ran IM Sports’ annual 3-on-3 Soccer Tournament. The turnout was about 50 teams ready to play to the limits of their endurance in order to win the IM Champ t-shirt
Mandatory Captain's Meetings
If you missed the flag football or basketball captain's meeting you are in luck. We have a makeup captain's meeting for both sports. The makeup meeting for flag football is August 28th at 4:00pm in room 206 of the Recreation and Wellness Center. The makeup meeting for basketball is August 29th at 12:00pm in the same room.
