Over the past month, players representing most of the Philadelphia-based open and coed teams, including recent nationals qualifiers Amp, Hooray and Pike, discussed forming a men's team to compete in the UPA fall series. This team would draw on the deep pool of talent both in and around Philly.
A core of 7 individuals has been chosen by Amp, Hooray, Love, Pike and Roots, to guide this team through its formation. This core group will determine the tryout process and establish basic team concepts, structures and strategies which will be further refined as the team takes shape.
It is important to note that while this core group will lay the long-term foundation for a successful open team from the greater Philadelphia area, they are not captains, nor are they guaranteed roster spots.
The tryout process will begin in April and run through the beginning of June.
