Intramurals - Offered Sports

Flag Football

We play 7 vs 7 on the Benedictine Soccer Field. Pass or run your way to the end zone for 6 points all-the-while dodging opponents who are desperately trying to pull your flag. This sport is played on the beautiful Benedictine soccer field. This non-contact sport allows players of all abilities, and sizes, to play football at the collegiate level.  Teams play on a 40-yard x 100-yard field with four 20-yard “zones” that represent first downs.  Each team has six eligible receivers on offense and one quarterback who is perpetually in shotgun mode.  Remember in this sport it’s not about who has the fastest receivers, it’s who completes the most efficient passes.

Flickerball

Good, clean, athletic fun!! This sport is to foster teamwork and camaraderie as well as improving one’s physical fitness.

Elements of Ultimate Frisbee, Soccer, Basketball, and Football can all be found in the game of Flickerball. Flickerball is played in 2 twelve minute halves. Some versions of flickerball use a regulation football; however the BC version uses a size 3 soccer ball. If you love playing outdoors regardless of weather conditions Flickerball is for you. Flickerball is our only outdoor 2nd quarter sport and it is played in all types of weather such as heat, cold, snow, rain, fog, the only cancellations are for lighting. You never know what kind of weather we’ll get here in Northeast Kansas in November and December. Flickerball is played on the BC Soccer Field.
