Aviator Training Camp

Days Hours Minutes Seconds

Until First Event


Top

Each year since our start in 2015, the Aviators have finished each season one step closer to winning the AUDL American Ultimate Disc League Championship. Last year we made it all the way to Semi-Finals only to fall to the 2018 Champions. This year, we are continuing that momentum and aim to go all the way!

Tryouts will be run differently in an effort to increase the ultimate knowledge and talent in LA and to help the Aviators evaluate talent more tactfully. Instead of a single day exhibition make-or-break opportunity, we are inviting all athletes to come to our 3 Saturday Training Series to not only showcase everyone’s skills, but help develop new skills and improved mechanics as well. The more days you come, the more time you’ll have to play and practice at an elite level and learn from the coaching staff. This training camp will be suitable to all skill levels and is gender neutral, but you need to be 18+ to register. Tryout registrants will be grouped by gender and by athletic ability for most drills and scrimmages for best individual attention and focused learning in a safe environment. Participants will get the most value by attending all three days of training camp, but single event registration is OK too. 
PLEASE NOTE: There will not be any “walk-up” registration. You must register in advance to participate. Registration for each training event will close the 5pm the evening before each event. 

The dates, times and locations of these events are below. We recommend arriving 30 minutes early to each event:

  • 2/9/19 10am-2pm at Torrance Wilson Park, 2200 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, CA 90501
  • 2/16/19 8:30am-12:30pm at Glendale Sports Complex, 2200 Fern Ln, Glendale, CA 91208
  • *2/23/19 10am-2pm at McMaster Park, 3624 Artesia Blvd, Torrance, CA 90504 (new field site and day due to rain forecast on 2/2)

Register for one, two, or all three days and hone your skills while trying out for the 2019 season below. We highly recommend attending all three sessions. If pricing is an issue or if you have general questions, please email daniel@laaviators.com and we can discuss options including scholarships to cover registration or answer any questions you may have.

What you should bring to tryouts:
1) A good learning attitude and spirited play
2) Your favorite pair of ultimate cleats & apparel
3) Large refillable water bottle & any energy or snack foods you may need
