Alpha Squad '12/'13 (Updated 11/30)

2013 A Team Selection
  • We will not be having a tryout weekend this year.  We will be selecting the final A team some time in February based on performance and attendance at all practices and tournaments.  Update: We will be making a round of cuts after the first week of practices in January.  We will take approximately 25 players on the A team squad, and everyone else will start practicing with the B team.  We will select the final A team of approximately 20 players by the end of February.
  • Coach Lerman will be making the selections with input from the team leadership (Spencer, Daniel,  Sam, Elliott, PGL, Jonas).
  • Other than the team leadership, the returning A team players are trying out along with everyone else.
  • We likely will be attending a tournament in California prior to making the final A Team selection.  We will be selecting a squad for this tournament in November.  Update:  Pres Day hasn't been announced yet, but we will be figuring this out soon.
  • We also will have a B team that is open to anyone who wants to play.

Alpha Squad
  • Starting September 28, all Friday night practices will be Alpha Squad practices (i.e. closed to non-Alpha Squad players).
  • Between now and Beaver Brawl (October 13/14), Alpha Squad is open to all returning/advanced players.  Following Beaver Brawl, Alpha Squad will be open to all players.
  • No players will be cut from Alpha Squad for being bad at Ultimate.  Players may be cut if their commitment is lacking.

Expectations for Alpha Squad Players
  • Attendance at all Friday night and Saturday morning practices.
  • Attendance at at least one throwing practice per week.
  • Doing two lifting workouts per week.
  • If you are unable to attend a Friday or Saturday practice, go to http://imgoingtomisspractice.upsultimate.com/ and follow the directions.
