"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.
