FIELD DAY OVERVIEW
Captains, please organize your team and spread the word on these great tidbits. Field Day does NOT have a set schedule for most events. Your team will have from 1pm-5pm to complete events at your leisure. We will take a “halftime” break
at3:00pm for 30 minutes to reset the events, rest & feed our staff, and allow you to get lunch. Work at your own pace during the day making sure you get all the events in! Each team will perform a “head to head” event and will be assigned a time to compete in this event. Once the events “close” at 5:00pm, we will have a closing ceremony.

Registration/Events will begin at 1:00pm. You can arrive at

Please have a representative visit the Club Sport registration table under the pavilion next to the field and sign your team waivers, etc. Everyone on your team must sign the roster/waiver and you MUST turn this back into the command tent no later than 1:30pm.  Each player that signs your roster will be given a numbered wristband with your team number on it. Only players with a numbered wristband will be able to compete for your team. Anyone arriving late should go to the registration table to sign in and get a wristband.

EVENTS OVERVIEW:
 
Scuba Steve Relay
5 racers (at least 1 female)
Racers don aquatic gear and race around the cone and back. Each racer must wear a life vest, mask, swim fins, and carry a giant inflatable shark and remove and switch all the outfit for the next racer.
 
Chain Gang Relay
5 racers (at least 1 female)
The 5 racers will be “chained” together with bungee from the start. Together they must transfer a pyramid made of giant yoga balls to the other end of the course. Time will stop once the top “cap” ball is placed on the pyramid.
 
Duck Launch
3 launchers + 1 bonus catcher (at least 1 female)
Shoot a rubber duckie as far as you can with a slingshot. 3 ducks are flung and points awarded for distance. The ducky must come to rest within the landing area’s boundary lines. Both holders and launcher must not touch any body part outside the launching box and must not fall out of the box unit until the duck leaves the launcher or that fling will be marked as a zero. Those holding the launcher CANNOT choke up on the slingshot. The longest launch out of 3 tries will be recorded (measured to the nearest yard). BONUS: A 4th duck will be launched with a teammate positioned at or beyond the
40 yard mark. If that person catches the duck with a net ON THE FLY and with feet in the landing zone, an extra 10 yards will be added to the team’s best launch.
 
Blind Man’s Challenge
5 players (at least 1 female)
Teams will have 4 minutes to transfer as many colored balls to the correct bins. 3 players will be blindfolded and only they may handle the balls. The other 2 “seeing eye teammates” can use only voice commands to direct their teammates to grab balls out of a pool and deposit into the matching bins. Teams get various points for correct balls and penalties for balls in the wrong bins.
 
Head to Head Volley Pong
4 throwers + 1 shagger (at least 1 female),
This event will be HEAD TO HEAD. Teams will receive an assigned time at random to compete in this event when they check in. They will compete against another team to clear 6 giant “cups” with a tossed ball. Throwers must rotate each toss and the shagger may “re-rack” the cups when they get down to 3 remaining cups. The game is done when the first team to clears their cups. Each team gets 5 points for each cup cleared before the finish.
 
Dizzy Bat Spin Relay
5 racers (at least 1 female)
Start with all 5 players at the start line. Players must make 7 complete revolutions around the bat with the bat on the ground and their forehead on the bat. The official will count off the revolutions. Then the player must race down, around the cone, and back and tag the next player, who repeats the process.
