Phoenix 2017 Tryout Announcement!

Hello Everyone!

We are proud to announce our 2017 Tryout Schedule! This year, the roster will be selected by our new Head Coach, Eddie Alcorn, as well as our captains, Lyra Olson and Jessi Jones.

This season, we’re looking to build a team of athletes who are hungry to learn and hyped for one another. Our aim is to develop together, with our focus on personal and team growth. We hope that you will want to join us in this mission!

Tryouts will take place over the following weekends (locations TBA):

  • Open Tryout: April 15, 9 AM – 2 PM
  • Invite Tryout: May 13, 1 – 5 PM
  • Invite Tryout: May 14, 11 AM – 3 PM

We will also be hosting pod workouts leading up to and throughout the tryout process for all women interested in prepping for the club season. Attendance at these workouts is strongly encouraged as a way to demonstrate effort and commitment. Please indicate your availability preferences for these pods in the Tryout Registration Form.

2017 Tryout Registration Form

To cover field rental costs, we have a tryout registration fee of $10. Please PayPal phxultimate.finance@gmail.com or bring cash to the first tryout.

2017 Tournament Schedule:

  • Monkey Bowl (June 3-4 // Nashville, TN)
  • Cackalacky Challenge (June 24-25 // Triangle, NC)
  • Select Flight Invite (July 29-30 // Hilliard, OH)
  • Elite-Select Challenge (Aug 19-20 // Appleton, WI)
  • Regionals (Sept 23-24 // TBA)
  • Nationals (Oct 19-22 // Sarasota, FL)*

This tournament schedule was built with cost in mind, as we recognize that the Elite club season can be really expensive. Only one of the regular season tournaments will require a flight- everything else we will be driving to! We hope this will make club season more accessible for each one of you.

Please reach out if you have any questions! We look forward to seeing you out at tryouts this year!

Phlove,
Phoenix Captains

Pre-Season Skills Sessions

We are very excited about the growing number of female ultimate players in the Triangle and we are thrilled to be hosting another year of pre-tryouts Skills Sessions. These sessions are open to all female ultimate players, even those not interested in trying out for Phoenix this season. For those who are trying out, this is a good chance to get back into the swing of things before tryouts, show your stuff to the Team Selection Committee, meet other potential tryouts, and build your skill set.

Each session will run from 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM (or until dark). For the sessions at Bethesda, we will have optional goalty or mini extending until 8:00 PM.  The sessions will be led by a number of Selection Committee members as well as Phoenix 2015 players.

Here are the dates we have planned (we’ve tried to do a mix of nights to accommodate people’s schedules):

Thursday, March 17th (Hooker)
Wednesday, March 23rd (Bethesda)

Monday, April 4th (Lincoln Center)
Wednesday, April 13th (Bethesda)
