We want to thank everyone who came out to tryouts over the past few weeks. Through cold weather and rainy conditions, over 125 people participated in tryouts for Crash and Thunder and the leadership could not be more proud of the effort and energy everyone brought to the field. With so many people interested in playing Mixed ultimate frisbee this summer, we quickly realized that 2 teams wouldn’t be enough to accommodate all the talent that we saw. So we’re thrilled to announce that we’re welcoming a third mixed team to the Crash and Thunder system, and we’re really excited that we get to share the experience of touring ultimate with even more players in the area.
This third team, which is yet-to-be-named, will be lead by Coach Andrew Portwine. Portwine is a long time ultimate frisbee player and an experienced coach, and we’re excited that he’ll be leading this team for the 2016 season. Like both Crash and Thunder, this third team will be focused on development, keeping a positive attitude on and off the field, and enjoying the touring ultimate experience for everything it has to offer. Coach Portwine is looking forward to working with a committed team looking to improve their skills and attend a few tournaments to gauge their improvement throughout the season.
Practice for this third team will start this Tuesday, and they’ll be attending tournaments throughout the summer in the area. A roster announcement will follow in the coming days.
