CSA Glowing Frisbee Tournament


Southeastern Louisiana University’s Catholic Student Association will sponsor their annual Ultimate DISCovery Frisbee Tournament on Thursday, May 4.

The event will begin at 5:30 p.m. at St. Albert Catholic Student Center. A majority of the proceeds will go to St. Vincent de Paul thrift store in Hammond, LA.. The organizers of the event include SLU CSA members Jared Matherne, Parker Berthelot, Maddie Gallagher and Catherine Costa.

The  night time event will include glow-in-the-dark Frisbee discs and glow-in-the-dark wristbands to add an extra glow for participants. According to Parker Berthelot, the tournament will most likely end around midnight, as it has in the past.

Participants must sign up for the event and pay their fees by April 27 by 3 p.m. The cost of participation is $7 per player; $5 is donated to charity, and the remaining $2 is put toward the catering of the event. For those who are attending but are not playing the game, the cost is $5.

Each team can have a total of six or seven players, but only six are allowed on the field at any given time. In an attempt to even the playing field, there may not be more men than women, which means that the maximum number of men per team is three. Also, one man and one woman on each team must be members of CSA.

The rules of the game will be given at the captains’ meeting in St. Albert’s auditorium on April 26 at 6 p.m. Anyone can form a team by emailing the name of the team, captain’s name and team members’ names to Jared Matherne (jared.matherne-2@selu.edu).

This event began last year, and there was one tournament during the fall semester and one tournament during the spring semester. This year the tournament is only being held during the spring semester. In previous years the tournaments both had about five or six teams participating.

The CSA is an official Southeastern student organization based on the religious and moral principles taught by Jesus Christ. The group’s mission is to provide a place for Southeastern students to experience a sense of community based on these principles. Although it focuses on Catholicism, everyone is welcome to participate regardless of their religious beliefs.

CSA nights, which are always followed by free pizza and fellowship, are held each Monday during the regular semester at 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the St. Albert Catholic Student Center.  CSA meeting activities usually include prayer, praise and worship, scripture study, service, crafts, guest speakers and presentations.

Anyone can become a member of CSA just by signing up and any member who attends and signs in to 10 CSA events per semester is granted active membership.
