Were you a fan of Wild & Crazy Kids? 80s babies and children of the 90s, rejoice! We’ll be taking a page out of that classic Nickelodeon game show and invite all area nonprofits and school organizations to compete in a 3v3 Pogo Polo Tournament “on the green.”
So what exactly is Pogo Pillo Polo?
Each player will be equipped with a Hopper Ball, ya know, the bouncies with handle on it and a Pillo Stick–that game you used to play in gym class, remember? The game ball will be a giant beach ball and two oversized nets will be at each end. There will be three field players, an no goalies allowed in net.
Check out this video (8:48) for an idea of how the game is played.
Who can compete?
We’ll break things up into three categories*: Kids Play (5-12), Kind of Adults (13-18) and Adults (19+).
This is a great opportunity for sports teams fundraising to buy uniforms, schools raising money for field trips, nonprofits looking for project funds, etc. While we will allow businesses and/or groups of friends/family to compete, we ask that you select a nonprofit or cause to donate your earnings to if your team wins.
It will be a 3v3, double elimination tournament to win up to a $500 donation, directly benefiting the winning nonprofit or elected nonprofit by the team. Teams can have up to six people on a roster, but only three players can be on the field of play.
Kids Play Prize – $100
Kind of Adults Prize – $250
Adults Prize – $500
*Note: Based on participation, the Kind of Adults and Adults categories would possibly compete amongst each other. Kids Play will remain separate, but must have at least 4 teams entered to have a tournament. Team’s will play up a category if it consists of 1 or more members of an old category – For example, if a team has two 12 year olds and a 14 year old, it would play in the Kind of Adults category.
Registration and Rules
Teams must register in advance by Thursday, April 28. A team deposit of $10 is required to register. Each team member will receive a goodie bag at registration on the day of the event that includes a $10 gift certificate for Settlers Green.
