NUIGs Ultimate Team


NUIG’s Ultimate Team or N.U.T is a program designed to promote a more healthy and active lifestyle among our staff and students, as well as promoting a friendly sense of competition between the 5 Colleges within the University. 
Each of the 5 Colleges can enter as many teams as they wish. Each team will consist of 10 students and/or staff from their respective college, with at least 3 males and 3 females on each team. People can form their own team (as long as all team members are in the same college) or join a random team in their college. Throughout the college year the teams will take part in 5 events where they will compete against their rival colleges for the title of “NUIG’s Ultimate Team”. The 5 events for the program are:
  •  A 3K Santa Speed Walk
  • 7-A-Side Gaelic
  • Ultimate Frisbee
  • Tag Rugby
  • Futsal
The program will conclude with one final team-orientated challenge, "The Dangan Mud Warrior Challenge",which will test the teams both physicallyand mentally, with many obstacles to overcome and puzzles to solve. This will be our very own “Tough Mudder” styled event, exclusive to those who participate in the N.U.T Program.
The idea for N.U.T and the entire concept for the Intramural Sports Program is to encourage a sense of community with the University by encouraging schools and colleges to participate together in recreational activity many of our students, approx 6,000 are involved in club activity /recreational activity we are working to encourage all students to participate in fun activities which will also offer opportunities to interact with class mates in a less than formal setting.
So if you and your friends/colleagues/lecturers/students are interested in representing your college, and more importantly, having a lot fun check out: register a team below! Or if you have any questions you can email the team directly at nut@clubs.nuigalway,ie
