Ditchball is one of the most spectacular games during the annual outdoor events and festivities at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Manitoba.
The game consists of two five-person teams inside a large ditch (made of snow and ice), 10-15 feet high. The object of the game is to get the ball out of the ditch and into the hands of your goalie. Each goalie is located at the top of each end.
There are a few very important rules that were established by the event creators nearly 30 years ago:
1. Everyone must wear a helmet.
2. Participants will not strike one another.
3. Any behavior deemed violent or inappropriate by the referee shall result in the ejection of the player for the remainder of the game, or the entire tournament
