The ValparaiZone and Valpo Men's and Women's Basketball Teams are excited to announce the Valpo Hoops Dodgeball Challenge for students.  This event, to take place Saturday, October 22, at 7:30 pm, after the Valpo Volleyball game, in the ARC, is sure to generate excitement around the upcoming basketball season.  

The Valpo student body has a chance to not only play dodgeball, but play it with players on the men's and women's basketball teams.  Students just have to create a team of five people (can be all guys, all girls, or coed), and each student team will be paired with both a Men's Basketball and Women's Basketball player.  This will give each team 7 players, and a chance for students to get to know and interact directly with all of the players.  The winning team will face the Men's Basketball coaching staff in the championship.  

There will be FREE pizza from Hungry Howie's, a chance to take pictures with and meet all the players, coaches, along with the Crusader.  There will also be video board introductions, with this being the first and only chance for students to see the team's intro video on the video boards before the first preseason game on October 29.

Every team will be guaranteed at least two games, and it is sure to be a fun night for all students and the teams.  You can sign-up online at www.imleagues.com (the site for Valpo Intramurals, just find "Valpo Hoops Dodgeball), or in the Union's Chapel View Lounge Hallway during lunch or dinner.  The deadline for sign-up is Thursday, October 20, at 5 pm.  If you're unsure how to create an IMleagues.com account, view the "How-To" PDF on this page, or email ValparaiZone@gmail.com.

If you don't want to play, come watch, have a good time, and meet the team!

This event is also in partnership with UPC's Fall Fest, which is sure to be another great new tradition. Event info for the Fall Fest will be added below soon!
