On Wednesday, July 27th, Machine will be participating in a scrimmage against the US Men's Under 20 team from 8:30pm - 10:00pm at North Central College in Naperville.
The Men's Under 20 team is a collection of the top young players from across the country, who are currently in Chicago for a week long training camp prior to traveling to Wroclaw, Poland for the World Junior Ultimate Championships.
Coached by Chase Sparling-Beckley, Sam O'Brien, and George Stubbs, Machine will face off with the U20 team under the lights at Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium on North Central College's campus. The game will start immediately following the U20 Women's scrimmage with Chicago's Elite Women's team, Nemesis at 7:00pm - 8:30pm.
Both scrimmages are open to the public. Come see the future stars of the sport as they prepare to represent the country at the world level!
Post-Scrimmage Facebook Post- Machine had the opportunity to scrimmage against the US Men’s Under 20 team yesterday evening in Naperville. (Both the US Men’s and Women’s Junior National teams are conducting week-long training camps at North Central College, prior to departing for Poland for the Junior World Championships next week.)
The scrimmage was competitive and high energy from start to finish, with numerous displays of elite athleticism and highly skilled execution on both sides. Machine came away with a W, but it was clear that the US U20 team is discipline, spirited, and talented beyond their years. It is a testament to the organization of their coaching staff and the dedication of their players. We are happy to have had the opportunity to meet these young ambassadors of US ultimate and to have had the chance to help them in their preparation for a run at a gold medal. We will be following their progress closely, and are very confident they have what it takes to become world champions in Poland! Good luck!
