Call Backs are a two-way process, in which we’ll all have a chance to work together and see if it’s a match.

If selected to be part of the Professional Roster, you'll enter an 8-week+ Player in Training program designed to immerse you on our format and style of play, while giving you time to explore our team and values.

The training program is 8 weeks, with the training culminating in a match for friends and family. Training begins Thursday, November 7 @ 7pm [location: The Rozzie Square Theater].
