Battleship at UREC

Battleship 2018 is currently being planned - please check back here for more information about date, time, and registration requirements.

UREC Intramural Sports and Inclusive Recreation is collaborating once again with Aquatics and Safety for the showdown of the century, the 8th Annual BATTLESHIP TOURNAMENT. Teams from across JMU’s sea of purple and gold will compete for the prestigious Recruit’s and Admiral’s Cup. This is open to all students, faculty/staff and to all skill levels.

Have you ever played the board game Battleship? Do you want the chance to play it in real life? Sign up a team of your four closest allies to take on a fleet of enemies. The objective of Battleship is to sink all of the other “boats” (canoes) in the water (pool) and be the last #squad standing. During the event, there will be other opportunities to showcase your sea-faring skills through ancillary events like log-rolling and tug-of-war, to name few.  

You can't cross the sea merely by standing and staring at the water. WHO’S READY TO BATTLE?!?!
