Future, past and current Muff ‘n Men,
Hey Pittsburgh (and Pittsburgh region)
Announcing The Muff ‘n Men Tryouts
We proudly announce Muff Tryouts will begin on June 1 and 2 with our first tournament likely on June 29, 2013 in Indiana. As with last year we will be making cuts and offering roster spots throughout the season on a rolling basis. However, this year, we hope to have most of the roster finalized after our first tournament.
As a new twist, we will publish a list to all tryouts on a weekly basis which will basically be a depth chart. This will allow everyone, throughout the season to know generally where they stand on not only making the team, but generally on playtime and expected contribution at tournaments.
Beginning with our first tryouts we will start making roster decisions. We will follow the USAU guidelines and begin filling out the roster starting with our first tournament. However, the final roster will not be complete until required. This is to compensate for injuries as well as give an opportunity to any college players, as well as for any new to town or out of section tryouts. Any individual issues or questions can be addressed to us at any time. If you are interested in trying out, please send us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and introduce yourself, telling us a bit about your ultimate experience. Keep in mind, feedback will be given throughout the tryout process, in that we will certainly be able to give you an idea of your standing with the team and chances of making the roster. We understand that our tryout process will be later than many regional teams, and will accommodate all situations.
Initial Tryouts: June 1 and 2
Practices: Saturday mornings 9-1, Lower O'Hara in Fox Chapel

Communication: We will be collecting pickup and practice RSVPs via google calendar. Once we receive your interest via an email to email@example.com you will receive an invitation to our 2013 google group. Thereafter, we will make general announcements to the group and RSVPs will be made using the google calendar.
The Muff ‘n Men has been Pittsburgh's Mixed team for 7 years. We have worked to become competitive in the Region and attract a diverse group of players who want to have fun and compete at a high level. We are truly thankful to be a part of this community and represent Pittsburgh. We expect again to have a fresh group of new faces and our team makeup will be based on merit and commitment. Our goal is to have fun and be competitive playing this game we love--remember, we don't get paid to play this game, so you better be having fun to justify this whole thing.
