The 15th Annual Spring Olympics were held on June 1st, 2024 at 12:30pm at

In 2009 the Spring Olympics began as something fun. A lot of work goes into the planning each year, and founder Michael Endres wanted to make that work more meaningful. Thus, in 2012, the games became a charitable event, combining fun with giving back to the community.

Here is how it works. 8 teams consisting of 2 players each compete in a series of back yard games. Each team chooses a team color and a charity to represent. Each player pays a buy-in. In the end, the winning team has the entire purse donated to their charity in their names.

The scoring is as follows. Each player earns a bonus point for their team if they wear their team colors to the Olympics. There are 7 bracketed games. Each team is gauranteed to play each other team once in the first round. Each game is single elimination. The first place team gains 5 points. The second place team gains 3 points. The two third place teams gain 1 point.

In the end, bronze, silver and gold medals are awarded. In the event of ties, there is an 8th game that must be played to break medal ties. This 8th game is also the alternative game; if both teams mutually decide that they do not want to compete against each other in an event they may instead play the alternate game.
