The Detroit Mechanix just announced they will support a Detroit Mechanix women's team during the 2018 American Ultimate Disc League season. Tryouts are this Saturday, January 27.

From the announcement:
The current plan for this season is to give the women's team the same benefits we offer to our open (AUDL) team. This includes live streaming all of the games, and providing high-resolution video of the games for highlights and promotions. We hope that this influx of media from women's games will help move us forward into a more unified generation of players!

We have not yet solidified who the women's team will play yet, but we are hoping other AUDL teams in our division (or close, out-of-division teams) will join us in this adventure. Should other AUDL teams choose to follow us, the Detroit Mechanix are willing to host women's games on the same day as our home (AUDL) games.

Detroit Mechanix are an original AUDL team since the inaugural 2012 season. The Mecahnix have a mascot named Rusty and a dance team called the "Maximum Intensity Dancers." In the 2017 season Detroit finished in last place in the Midwest Division with a (1-13) record.
