Q: WHAT TOURNAMENTS ARE YOU ATTENDING?
We’re pumped about our schedule this summer! We will be attending three (and half) tournaments this summer. We will also play in the USAU series (sectionals and regionals) in the fall.
June 15—early season mixer near Seattle

August 17-18—NW Fruit Bowl near Seattle

Q: WHAT ARE YOUR WEEKLY PRACTICE EXPECTATIONS?
We’ll have on average two required practices or pods each week and expect everyone to be dedicating time to lifting, track workouts, and throwing. Our goal this year is balance team time and free time, ensuring that we get lots of reps together while also letting people enjoy their summers.
