Are you a talented ultimate player? The New York Rumble are holding their supplemental tryouts in order to find the best ultimate players in the Tri-State area. The tryouts will take place on December 6, December 13, January 10 and January 17 at Randall’s Island Field 90.
Players will need to arrive by 10:30 a.m. to get checked in and geared up for the tryout, which will take place from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for all sessions. Players will undergo intensive evaluation of their skills, knowledge and compatibility in order to determine the best fit for the roster.
“We are starting early this year so that we can have a major part of our roster complete earlier during the offseason,” said Head Coach Anthony Nuñez. “Having our roster earlier means the team gets to practice more together and gain chemistry a lot sooner.”
The tryout will be held outdoors, so players should dress warmly. Molded or turf cleats are both acceptable, and players will be expected to bring both light and dark shirts.
Energy bars and water will be provided, and there will be plenty of staff on hand to run the tryout and review performance. MLU video staff and photographers from UltiPhotos will be in attendance, so players should be prepared to spend a little time in the spotlight.

Time: 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
