Hey New England ultimate!

Our mixed team, HAOS (pronounced: HOUSE or HAY-OSS), is recruiting for the 2015 season. We play both the USAU Circuit and 5/2 DivI/II for the BUDA summer season (5/2 I+II are essentially one division), placing second last year for our first ever podium at the tournament since our inception in 2011!

We began expanding into the club scene in 2013. 2014 was our first full season, which saw us miss Regionals by just two places. Last September we only brought 14 players to sectionals, and with a full roster this upcoming season we expect to be extremely competitive for one of those spots.

That said, we are not your average club team. We put a large emphasis on a fun and family atmosphere. We camp together at tournaments, play with each other 2-3 times a week, and party together on the off-weekends. There are a number of couples and siblings, and most us either went to high school or college together. It is a very inclusive, close knit group and we view superior athleticism and chemistry as our way to counterbalance the larger pools that club teams who run tryouts pull from.

Currently we are accepting applications from anyone who sees themselves as athletically competent to compete at a Regionals level in the mixed division. We do not believe in a true try out system, because our team is as much a social organization as it is a sporting team. We want you to be a part of our family, not just a frisbee player on our frisbee team.

Our priorities in recruitment are male and female handlers, but anyone looking for a team is welcome to apply. We will likely start holding open pick-up soon in the Watertown, MA area, where you can come and check us out if you like.

Our only requirements are:
1. The athleticism to compete at an extremely high level.
2. A fun-loving attitude and a desire for a family atmosphere.
3. To buy into our system and come in with an expectation that this is different than most frisbee teams.

Throwing skill/overall experience is not as important to us, as our offensive system minimizes any deficiencies you might have, and part of the preseason will be dedicated to improving skills. Do not be intimidated to apply if you feel you don't have as much experience; enthusiasm is much more important.

To apply, send an email to zdarbeloff at gmail.com with your name, experience, and what you think you'd bring to the HAOS family. Also accepted in the application are possible HAOS puns for our 2015 BUDA name, your spirit animals, favorite drinks, whether or not you enjoy slapping, in-game celebration ideas, party themes, and anything else you feel is important to the sport of Ultimate.

Hope to see you out there!
