The fifth annual Virginia Fusion Ultimate Frisbee Tournament will be held this weekend, September 13th and 14th, at the Smith River Sports Complex (SRSC).

"Virginia Fusion is a very early-season tournament and allows teams to get players experience in competitive games," said Michelle Ng, co-founder of Without Limits. "This tournament is important for teams' recruiting and player development. "

On Saturday the competition will start at 10 a.m. with the last games starting at 1:30 p.m. The competition will begin again on Sunday at 9:00 a.m. with the last games starting at 10:45 a.m.

Without Limits, an organization dedicated to creating and developing opportunities for women Ultimate players, is the host of the tournament. Ng started Without Limits in 2010 because she saw a need and wanted to make a difference.

"This tournament is the first event of the 2014-2015 college season for most, if not all, of these teams. The athletes are ready to kick off their season and will benefit from a skills clinic led by players from North Carolina Phoenix, an elite club team from the Triangle," said Ng.

College Teams:
Delaware University
Duke University
Elon University
George Washington University
James Madison University
Maryland University
North Carolina University
University of Virginia
University of North Carolina at Wilmington
Virginia Commonwealth University
William & Mary University

Ultimate is a 7 v 7 game played on a field slightly smaller than a football field. Players cannot run with the disc and must complete passes to score in the end zone. The opposing team plays defense and if there is a turnover, they try to score in the opposite direction.
