  • Frazzleerham Club

    Frazzleerham was invented by Barry Morley at Sandy Spring Friends School in Sandy Spring, Maryland sometime in the 1960s. The Loyola Blakefield Latin Club under the careful and conscientious guidance of Mr. Leo Behrendt brought the game to Blakefield in the fall of 2004. Since then, it has become a staple activity for Dons in the Hollow every year and has even been incorporated into Freshman Orientation.
    The rules of the game are designed to provide players with a thorough workout while not favoring competitors who might excel in any particular sport. Players move a ball by throwing, bouncing, heading, and under certain circumstances punting; however, players may not run with the ball. The object is for one team to bounce the ball into a bucket that is held by one of their teammates, “the Snapper,” who is confined to a small square enclosure called the “Rham.” Each team has their own. Tackling is sometimes permitted but it is not an essential feature of the game. The field of play has no boundaries, and the time limit and required score can be adjusted to the will and constraints of the group.
    The Frazzleerham Club meets each Wednesday after school and is open to all students. Check the announcements for more information. No experience or commitment is required. Come out and play whenever you can.

    Interested students should contact Mr. Ryan Thomas.

The Spanish Club studies the culture and traditions of Spanish-speaking countries by examining art, music, cinema, poetry, and literature. This allows faculty and students to interact, practice spoken Spanish, and learn about Hispanic cultures in a relaxed atmosphere. The club also seeks to create networking opportunities between Hispanic students at Loyola and other schools in the area.  
    The Spanish Club meets each Thursday from 3:05 to 4:00 in Wheeler 202. Please contact Mr. Bahamon for more information. 
  • Speech & Debate

    Loyola’s championship Speech & Debate team, also called Forensics, offers Dons a chance to compete for Loyola with their voices and their minds. Effective communication has probably never been more important than it is today. With so many voices and viewpoints screaming out for our attention in our turbulent times, those who have most fully mastered this art will have the greatest impact. Fortunately, these communication skills can be taught and learned. Our nationally recognized program does exactly that. Whether you have a cause to advocate, a policy to debate, a character to portray, or a news issue to analyze, speech and debate provides a platform for your voice to be heard. The Dons have a rich history of success, having earned many local, regional, and national accolades at tournaments over the past decade and beyond. Join us! 
    The full club meets each Wednesday from 3:15 to 5:00 in Wheeler 106. 
    Interested Upper School students should contact Mr. Paniccia and view the webpage for Speech and Debate here.
