Hi! We’re Birdfruit.

Birdfruit is a seven-year old Seattle mixed team that is on a quest to strike a balance between winning games and winning the spirit award. Our cheers don’t make sense, our love for our team makes a lot of sense, and our enthusiasm never runs dry.


Birdfruit 2021 Tryouts

Birdfruit will be hosting a modified tryout process in 2021. Rather than a single large event, we will have a number of smaller events throughout the month of June with individuals only invited to certain events. Keeping the events small will allow us to maintain strict safety protocols and keep the extra logistics associated with the enhanced protocols manageable.

Definition | Birdfruit

noun
/bərd-fro͞ot/

A conjunction of fowl and food resulting in a fantastical pun.

Examples

Flamango; plummingbird; toucantaloupe; appletross; grape blue heron; coconuthatch

Origin

Based on the iconic New Zealand birdfruit, the kiwi.

Backstory

Team members and then-employees at Five Ultimate suggested we be outfitted in a misprinted set of jerseys for the New Zealand National Team, but little did they know those jerseys were given away to youth players. While our plan to be called The Kiwis was foiled, we saw an opportunity to expand our horizons to other bird and fruit pun combinations, and once we started we knew we couldn’t be stopped.
