Sport Description

Whether you are a fan of having a leisurely toss of the disc or looking for some intense disc-tossing action, Intramural Ultimate is for you! Teams will compete in pool play, and then move onto a single-elimination tournament, with the winners receiving the best prize known to man: University of Iowa Intramural Champion T-shirts. Ultimate is a fantastic workout that features constant movement from all involved. It is played like football, with less contact, with the goal being to throw the disc to your teammates until your team reaches the end zone for a point. So, if you are looking to have a good time and also looking to upgrade your wardrobe with a new T-shirt, get signed up for Intramural Ultimate on today!
