IT IS THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN!
This is your opportunity to prove that you have the skills and qualities to compete with the best women's ultimate team in Vancouver.
Last season, Traffic finished in the Top 8 at USAU's National Championships. We are classified in the Pro Flight in USAU's Triple Crown Tour and will be competing against North America's best. On top of that, Traffic won gold at 2013 Canadian Ultimate Championships and has earned the first bid in Canada to compete this summer at the World Ultimate Club Championships in Lecco, Italy.
We are looking to assemble a squad of competitive, skilled and hardworking athletes to come together to help achieve our goals. Do you have what it takes?
There will be two rosters that we will be fielding for at tryouts:
- Club Worlds: players will practice and attend tournaments (Flowerbowl and Solstice) leading up to Italy. Invitation to TCT events will be on a case-by-case basis.
- Triple Crown Tour /Fall Series: players will practice and attend the 2 TCT events (US Open and Pro Flight Finale) and will prepare to compete in the USAU Series
NOTE: There will be an overlap of rosters in the summer, however after Worlds, we will be moving forward into the Fall series with a smaller roster. Those on the TCT or Worlds roster who are interested in the Fall Series are not guaranteed a spot. There will not be any tryouts post-Worlds, but an announcement will be made with the final roster that will proceed into the Fall series. This will be heavily based on performance throughout the summer.
Our selection committee is comprised of Jeff Cruickshank and this season's captains: Candice Chan, Kira Frew, and Catherine Hui. We will be making rolling cuts. Here are the tentative dates:
- Tuesday, April 8th
- Either Saturday or Sunday, April 12/13th (TBD)
- Tuesday, April 15th
After fields have been confirmed, we will send out an email to all applicants with the time and location of tryouts. Please fill out this form by Friday, April 4th, 2014 @ 3:00PM (PST). If you have any commitment/logistical issues in regards to the season or tryout dates, please let us know in the form.
