May the Odds be Ever in your Favor…

POSTED BY MARKETING STUDENTS

On April 11th at Canyonview Pool and Warren Fields, there will be the event of the year, as enthusiastic Tritons go head to head in a battle of fitness feats.

Are you someone who likes a little friendly competition and is always looking for new active outlets? Then sign up now for Triton Games 2014, a competitive game event to determine the Ultimate Tritons of UCSD.

Team and Individual Offerings

Triton Games consists of two formats: team and elite individual. These separate groups will each to compete in 10 events to showcase their strength, agility, and mental endurance.

Teams let you play to everyone’s strengths while having a good time!

The scoring is simple: whichever Triton has the most points overall will win the glory of being Ultimate Triton. In the team division, you have the ability to play to your strengths: decide which team members are stronger in each event to maximize your overall score. As a result, not every team member has to compete in each event, and the winning team will be determined by the combination of you and your teammate’s score.

Open Division

This event is sure to offer a good time to all, spectators and competitors alike. If you want to take advantage of the Triton Games event without vying to become an Ultimate Triton, then check out our Open Division. It’s simple: buy 12 tickets and use them to do whichever activities you like- without being scored!

A complete list of events is below, but don’t forget to join our facebook page! We’ll use it to keep everyone updated as we get closer to the Triton Games. Have questions? Ask them here.

We look forward to seeing all of you on game day, and as always…

May the Odds be Ever in your Favor.
