This past week has been a tremendously busy one for Cosmos Sports’ client, the Toronto Rush Ultimate Club. Last weekend saw the team host its 2016 combine, where nearly 70 Ultimate players headed to varsity stadium in hopes of making this year’s squad. This large tryout group consisted of both Rush alumni, and a number of fresh faces, all of whom were eager to make an impression, and hopefully earn a spot on one of the AUDL’s most consistently competitive teams.
At the combine attendees were subject to a day full of drills and scrimmages, led by several members of last year’s squad. These included cutting drills, elimination sprints, and a final hour of scrimmage play.
As it was only the first stage in the tryout process, a second combine will be held by “Invitation Only” and is set to take place on February 13th.
In tandem with this successful combine, the Rush also announced a number of signings this week.
Joining Isaiah Masek-Kelly, who was locked into a two-year deal last month, the Rush also signed four returning players including: Adrian Yearwood, Andrew Carroll, Jeff Lindquist, and Remi Ojo.
With off-season events ongoing, the Rush are eagerly anticipating the start of the 2016 season, and have high hopes for this year’s squad. For more information about the Toronto Rush visit their website at: www.torontorush.com or call (905) 564-7874.
