Spring Jam is a mixed gender, 5-on-5, elementary school team round robin tournament taking place on Sunday, May 20th 2018.
This year we will be expanding the tourney with room for 28 teams! We will also be partnering with Five Ultimate to bring you exclusive Spring Jam tournament gear. We will be inviting other vendors too, including food trucks!
Tournament central will house a Five Ultimate chill out tent, music, disc games and more!
There is an event in the parking lot this during Spring Jam so please plan accordingly and look to park in the parking lots highlighted in the map below.
Like last year, all divisions will be 5v5
Roster Minimum: Teams must have at least 10 players on their roster (5 girls and 5 Boys) to participate.
- Fields will be abbreviated
- 70 yards long

- 15-yard end zones
- Teams will play a round-robin format.
- Games will be hard capped at 50 minutes (no soft cap).
- Games are to 9 points or until the hard cap, whichever comes first.
- Teams each have one 90-second timeout per half, regardless of overtime (different from USA Ultimate rules).
- Gender Ratio 5 vs 5: The gender ratio is 3 Boys:2 Girls. Coaches may agree to play "offense calls" before the game. Teams may not negotiate for fewer than 2 girls on the field. Teams that do not have at least 2 girls within 5 minutes of the posted game start time MUST forfeit. A friendly game can be organized among the players present at that point which allows for at least 2 girls on the field for both teams.
