The TriBALLathon is a fun-filled competition consisting of TWU teams who will play Volleyball, Dodgeball, and Bowling! You can create a team by following the directions below, or simply come and show your support to the State Employee Charitable Campaign.

Who can enter?

TWU Employees are welcome to enter TWU's exciting TriBallathon! This is a fun, healthy, and easy way to show your support while contributing to the State employee Charitable Campaign. Everyone is encouraged to play!  Entry donation is $5 per individual in a team.  All proceeds go directly to the SECC campaign!

Faculty and Staff can receive an extra 30 minutes during their lunch break as University-sponsored wellbeing time! The administration has granted an additional 30 minutes during lunch to all employees, with approval from their supervisor, so they can participate in this SECC TriBALLathon.  Those who participate should document 0.5 hours of “University Sponsored Wellbeing” on their timecard entry.

How do I/we participate in the TriBALLathon?

Players can sign up individually or as part of a pre-organized team!  Individuals who sign-up will be randomly assigned to an ad-hoc team.

Three games will be running simultaneously in the Pioneer Stadium - Volleyball, Dodgeball, and Bowling.  

Each team must compete in all three games, but not all members of the team have to compete in each game.  It is recommended that each team member plays in only one or two of the three types of ball-games and that each game has one or two alternate players lined up in case conflicts arise in order of team member play.

The organizers will do their best to arrange the competition sequence so that potential conflicts of play by team members participating in multiple games is minimized, but the order of gameplay and team pair-offs cannot be set until after all teams have registered.
