DC Current Pro Ultimate Tryout for 2016 Season

Major League Ultimate's DC team - the Current - have scheduled their open tryout for the 2016 season.

When: Sunday, February 28, 2016; 9am - 1pm

Where: Nova Field House (Chantilly, VA)

Price: $40 online / $50 day of

Tryouts have always been scheduled in the same calendar year of the season. However, this tryout date is the latest scheduling of a tryout. Considering all past seasons have begun in April, final rostering would allow for just a few weeks before the first pull.

Season // Tryout Date
2013 // January 26, 2013 @ 5am
2014 // January 26, 2014 @ 5am
2015 // February 8, 2015 @ 5am
2016 // February 28, 2016 @ 9am

Past Seasons
Last season, the Current went (5-5) in the Eastern Conference and missed the playoffs after advancing to the post-season in the 2 previous seasons. D.C. Current's best season was a (11-1) record in the season, in which they won the MLU Championship.

2016 Season
The Current are said to be committed to player development and the future.

According to coach Will Smolinksi: D.C. Current fans should not be "surprised if there are new faces from around the mid-Atlantic region. With Truck Stop, Scandal and Ambiguously Grey all representing D.C. at USA Ultimate Club Nationals this fall, it is clear that the level of talent has never been higher around the DMV....

And the Current hope to continue to find [talent], no matter what club team it calls home."

Dear Anthony,
Sad, but true. http://sludgeonline.blogspot.com/2015/01/dc-pro-ultimate-teams-tryouts-2015.html. It's so dark at that time. As the Current once tweeted "5am is early, but worth it. Respect!"
