Snowball Fights

Yukigassen is the sport of snowball fighting! A fast-paced, outdoor winter team sport, teams consist of 7 players, and the game has rules similar to dodgeball and capture the flag. The winning team gets the other team out first by hitting them with snowballs, or by capturing their opponent’s flag.

Games are 9 minutes long. Play Sask hosts coed rec sports for adults, so all games are mixed-gender, and players must be at least 19+. Games are self-officiated. All players must wear eye protection, whether that be a helmet with a visor, ski goggles, or safety glasses or goggles.
