Machine 2017 - Tryout Interest Form / Hat Tournament REGISTRATION
Thank you for your interest in Chicago Machine and/or participating in the Chicago Men's Club Tryout Hat Tournament (a one day tournament with leadership representation from each of Chicago's Mens Club teams). Please fill out the following survey in order to be added to an email list which will be used to keep interested players updated on the tryout schedule and process. All tryouts will be held at Washington Park on the south side of Chicago.
In 2016, over 250 players registered their interest in trying-out for Chicago Machine.
If you are only interested in attending the Hat Tournament, and do not wish to be considered for Machine, please indicate so in the form below.
Considerations: Machine traditionally practices on most Saturday/ Sunday mornings from June through October. Outside of practices, players attend locally formed pod workouts (consisting of throwing, footwork, and conditioning drills) two nights each week, in addition to independent strength training. Team members are expected to attend all practices and tournaments. While the team does receive limited sponsorship and fundraising, total team dues and travel expenses for the season can reach upwards of $1,000 (in addition to flight costs).
Machine's tentative 2017 tournament schedule includes:
- Pro-Elite Challenge (Aurora, CO) - July 8th/9th
- Elite-Select Challenge (Appleton, WI) - August 19th/20th
- Pro-Flight Finale (Burlington, WA) - September 2nd/3rd/4th
- Regionals (Location, TBD) - September 23rd/24th
- Nationals (Sarasota, FL) - October 19th/20th/21st/22nd (Dependent on placement at Regionals)
