QiC decided to mix things up a bit today and take The League ultimate games to a new level with Ultimate KanJam.
No warm ups at The League, you can do that on your own time, we just get down to business.
Since it seems to perpetually rain in Georgia, we opted to set up the field from side to side to avoid the particularly deep mud pits at the long ends of the field. This made for a shorter field, but encouraged sprinting and the unique goals kept the game interesting.
Today’s sport was ultimate frisbee meets KanJam. Basic ultimate rules applied, but instead of regular end zones, each team had a KanJam goal that they either had to hit outright or a teammate could deflect the disc to hit or go into the goal. A large box (30 x 30 ft) was setup and offensive players had to throw from outside the box. A smaller box (15 x 15 ft) was setup inside the larger box and defensive players could not go inside the inner box where the goal was.
- Offense must throw from outside the large box
- Defense can guard the goal, but must stay outside the smaller box
- Offensive teammates can tip / deflect the disc into the goal.
- If a teammate catches the disc, it must be thrown outside the large box before another goal is attempted.
- In the hole – 3 points
- In the top – 2 points
- Anywhere else – 1 point
- Aquaman missing his first 5 attempts to tip the disc into the goal, then making 6 goals to become one of the top scoring players
- 8-Bit was a defensive beast, boxing out players left and right
- Almost sacrificing his body with a diving block to prevent a score
- Wild Thing never stopped moving and seemed to be everywhere
- Good Hands flicking the disc with deadly accuracy as usual
- Manning making us young guys look bad
