2019 Tryout Announcement
The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds, a professional ultimate disc team in the American Ultimate Disc League, is holding open tryouts for the 2019 season.
The selection process for the 2019 Pittsburgh Thunderbird roster begins at this open tryout. Select participants will be notified to attend an invite-only tryout after the first event.
As an organization, we are committed to finding the best athletes regardless of gender identification or sexual orientation. We welcome everyone interested in being rostered at tryouts to work for a spot on the team. Women and non-binary athletes are encouraged to tryout both as part of the Thunderbirds regular season team and/or the Supercell team. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For women interested only in Supercell; The Pittsburgh Thunderbirds are excited to continue the success of the Supercell in 2019. In light of the AUDL’s announcement to form a women’s league, the Thunderbirds are revising some of our gender equity goals for next season to support a successful launch of that league. We will be releasing more information to the community and asking for input soon. In the meantime, we wanted to get you excited for tryouts! During the open tryouts on the 19th, evaluators will be choosing a roster of women that will comprise the Pittsburgh ‘Supercell’, a community team comprised of Thunderbirds players and elite women’s players that will compete against other ultimate cities.
