Fury CLinics

Fury is going to host two clinics for beginners and intermediate Women's Ultimate frisbee players in the Bay Area. If you've just started playing or have played some league, but want some coaching to help you improve, these clinics are perfect for you! Players with some club experience are also welcome (and we will teach drills that any level of player can benefit from), but the focus of the clinic will be on basic elements of ultimate and giving relatively new players some tools to improve in an un-intimidating environment. read more...


Finalized 2010 Tryout Info

Fury has "finalized" our tryout schedule for the spring - the dates are set, but the times and locations of the invite tryouts have yet to be locked down.

The Fury 2010 tryout process will be starting slightly earlier this year in order to pick a team with enough time to prepare for the World Ultimate Club Championships in Prague this July.

Our first event will be a Women's Mixer, hosted jointly with two other Bay Area Women's Teams - Zeitgeist and Slackjaw. The Mixer will be open to women of all levels and we encourage everyone interested in learning more to come join us! It will consist of skill sessions led by each team and a bunch of scrimmages.

Fury will also be using the Mixer as our only open tryout. We will be extending invitations to the rest of tryouts after the Mixer so you will need to let us know you're interested in trying out for Fury no later than March 19th.

The schedule for tryouts is:

Saturday March 20th 9am-1pm at Roble - OPEN tryout/Bay Area Women's Mixer
Saturday April 10th 3-6:30pm, location TBD - INVITE tryout
Sunday April 11th 9am-12:30pm, location TBD - INVITE tryout

2010 Bay Area Women's Mixer

The three bay area women's club teams - Fury, Slackjaw, and Zeitgeist - are pleased to announce the continuation of a recent spring tradition - the Bay Area Women's Mixer.

The Mixer is an ultimate clinic open to women of all experience levels co-hosted by players from each of the bay area's women's teams. We will split attendees into groups and spend part of the clinic running through drills led by each club team. The groups will then be split into teams for a series of scrimmages.

The Mixer is all about playing with other women from the bay area, getting exposure to different strategies and insights from the drills, and starting to get a feel for teams that you may want to tryout for in the coming months.

After the Mixer, people will head to the Alpine Inn (a.k.a. Rasotti's a.k.a. Zott's) for burgers and beer and laughs.

What: Women's Mixer
Who: Any women ultimate players!
When: Saturday, March 20th, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Japan Recap

In many ways, the Dream Cup was like a dream come true for Fury. Club Jr. sponsored the team's trip to Japan for five days for one of the biggest tournaments in the world and the experience was one that the team will remember forever. Over 2,000 players converged on Fuji City for the weekend's play and Sockeye and Fury were guests of honor. During the tournament, Fury played three college teams (the Huskies, the Nihon Humingbirds, and the Chukyo FLIPPER & NaughtyKids) and the Japanese club team MUD in timed 50 minute games. After winning these four games, Fury faced the Japanese National Team that will be representing its country at Worlds in Vancouver this August. The Japanese took control of the finals from the start, taking half 8-4. Fury had a late surge, scoring five points in a row towards the end of the game, but it was too little, too late and the Japanese team won 15-9. More details of the weekend can be found on the IC Ultimate blog site (http://icultimate.blogspot.com/2008/03/dream-cup-2008.html).

Getting the chance to play international competition so early in the season will only be a good thing for Fury as it prepares for Worlds. Having the opportunity to visit Japan was a truly special experience and Fury expresses its deepest gratitude to Club Jr. and all of the people that helped make the trip a success. Special thanks go to Mr. Yoshida, Sat, Noriko, Graham, and Moko for all their help and support.


Tryout Dates and Times

Anyone interested in trying-out for Fury should contact our try-out coordinator, Joy "Chewie" Chen. We are planning on having our team's open try-out as part of a Bay Area Women's Mixer on Saturday, March 22nd. Invitations to play at the team's try-out tournament (DUI) and practices will follow the Mixer. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail any of the following contacts:

Coach (Matty Tsung) at coach@furyultimate.com



Fury is going to Japan

Club Jr. extended the generous offer to sponsor a trip to Japan for the Dream Cup to both the open and women's 2007 champions. Club Jr. will be paying for the flights, hotel, and ground transportation for 14 players from both Sockeye and Fury for the tournament. The Dream Cup is a large tournament held near the base of Mount Fuji that caters primarily to Japanese teams. Fury will be bringing 18 players and its coach, Matty Tsang, to the tournament and is eager for the chance to test itself against some of the Japanese competition it will see in August at Worlds. We are extremely grateful for the opportunity to engage in this cultural and ultimate exchange.

The Mixer will be a chance to play high level ultimate and hang out with other women in the area who you may have only played against. Everyone is welcome.
