Newly formed and energetic, The Observers is an up and coming co-ed Ultimate team based out of Houston, Texas. We're always on the lookout for new talent and those with a love of the game to join in on the fun. Whether you've played college, club, pickup, or just have untapped potential, we want you. Browse our website for more information about our goals, practices, tournaments, and don't be afraid to contact us for anything else you might have questions about. Hopefully we'll see you out on the Ultimate field!

Tryout Information!

If you plan on attending Observers 2014 tryouts, or are interested in playing for the observers this season, you HAVE to fill out this survey (it won't take long).
Remember, Tryout dates are:
(1) May 10th
(2) May 13th

Additional Information on Tryout Procedure:

The initial round of tryouts (May 10th & 13th) will be used to fill an initial 1/3-1/2 of the spots on the Roster. Everyone who does not make one of these initial roster spots will be placed on the "bubble." This means that we will be continuing to evaluate your strengths/improvement/dedication through the end of June at which time we will be making a more finalized roster with only one or two spots left open for invite players.

Our main reasons for doing a tiered tryout system:
1) We want to hold tryouts competitive with other teams
2) We want to be able to give a fair shot to players moving to Houston after college/for summer
3) We want newer players to have extra time to develop before final roster decisions are made
4) We want to see our final roster made up of dedicated players who make practices a priority into the beginning of the competitive portion of the season

Should there be enough people interested, we are open to forming an A and B team, otherwise we will likely have a travel team/practice players set up.

As always, if there are any questions, please send them through our information request page.

Goals This Season

This is an important message about our team and our team goals as we are nearing the beginning of the Club season.

Based on both the captains' feelings and what was generally said at the pre-season meeting in January, our goal for this season is to be competitive at Regionals.

The Observers is full of a lot of talent and we look forward to maximizing the potential of both individual players and the team dynamic this season. Last year we earned a bid to Regionals, and this year we plan on carrying the same level of play and camaraderie we saw at Sectionals from the first practice (April 5th!) to the last day of Regionals.

We are plan on having competitive try-outs in early May (more information to come) before our first tournament of the season, Some Like it HOT (May 24-25).

I hope you all are as excited to kick-off this season as we are!
