Sport Description

The always popular Canoe Battleship is back for the second time this school year! Again as part of the Friday Night Series, this is a fun and FREE way to get some exercise with your friends. Canoes are comprised of 3 to 4 players, though 3 participants are recommended. Teams will compete in the Field House pool, the final goal, to be the last canoe above water. Each team will be provided with 3 buckets and 1 shield to try to sink the other canoes, while trying to keep water out of its own canoe. This event is open, which means there are no gender restrictions. So get your friends together for a fun and fantastic battle for a T-shirt!
