Purpose

This is RIT/Gallaudet Sports Weekend is a competitive weekend between deaf students from RIT and Gallaudet University, located in Washington, D.C. According to NTID Student Congress Student Body By-Laws Edition 2011 states "Section 2. The purpose of this event is: to foster a spirit of sportsmanship, competition and cultural events. And to promote social relationships and interactions between both institutions." All deaf and hard-of-hearing students registered with NTID, as well as any interpreting majors, are eligible to play.

History

The event, which started in 1978, was on RIT's turf this time, as RIT holds it every odd-numbered year, and Gallaudet every even year. RIT/Gallaudet Sports Weekend started because both schools wanted to have a competition in sports as well as have an event to promote socialization in the Deaf community. The schools are often considered rivals because of their similarities, but also their differences. The event has evolved some over the years, that there were fewer rules when the event first started. After all of these games are put aside when the schools come together on Saturday night for Brick Festival Bash as known as BrickFest Bash, when the weekend is held at RIT; or RockFest Bash, when it's at Gallaudet.[1]
