We’re excited to have 13 players on the roster who developed their skills with Thunder in previous seasons! Watch out for these rhinos tearing it up on the field this summer!

Crash’s overall goal is to have a system that develops local talent to consistently excel nationally and internationally. We value hard work, mental toughness and dedication to improvement! Throughout the season we strive to be better as individuals and to raise the game of our teammates. This year, the focus for Crash is the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Saskatoon from August 24-27. Last year, we set our sights on trying to qualify for the World Ultimate Club Championships in 2018 and we remain focused on achieving that goal this season. To reach this goal, we want to play in high level tournaments and practice regularly throughout the summer as we prepare our bodies and minds to compete at the highest level we can. We typically practice on Tuesdays and Thursdays with breaks following tournament weekends.

Here is our planned list of tournaments for 2017.

  • Toronto Ultimate Festival – May 6-7 – Toronto, ON
  • Mixed Signals/Something Close to Home – June 3 or June 10 – Buffalo, NY or KW
  • Boston Invite – June 24-25 – Boston, MA
  • CUC Regionals – July 8-9 – Waterloo, ON
  • Select Flight Invite – July 29-30 – Hilliard, OH
  • Canadian Ultimate Championships – August 24-27 – Saskatoon, SK

If we succeed in qualifying for WUCC 2018, all players who are part of the Crash team that qualifies for that tournament will be invited to play for the team next season and join us at WUCC.

In addition, Crash is planning to send a team to USAU fall series following the conclusion of these tournaments based on the team’s preference. We don’t expect every player who joins us through the summer to play in the fall Fall series and will pickup players from elsewhere as required to fill that roster. The USAU tournament dates are:

  • Sectionals – September 9-10 – Upstate NY
  • Regionals – September 23-24 – Boston, MA
  • US Nationals – October 19-22 – Sarasota, FL

We’re excited for what our upcoming season will bring and we hope that you are too! If you’re interested in playing with Crash or Thunder this year, sign up for tryouts!
