* Update: March 7 * The mini-camp will be held completely indoors (same location).
Greetings players and participants of Mechanix events, both past and present! March is finally here and we hope you are ready for the warmer weather! Just the same, things with the Mechanix are starting to heat up!
The Detroit Mechanix will be hosting an open training camp/practice this Saturday, March 9th from 1-4pm at the Bloomfield Tennis & Fitness Club. Adaptive combine metrics will be available for those who wish to officially tryout for the team and cannot attend the March 16th combine. We now offer the option to pay the combine fee of $25 (combine jersey not included) or the regular $60 (jersey included)...we only have 13 Combine Jerseys Left, once they are gone, they are gone! Those who have already paid the $60, we hope you have enjoyed the winter field time so far, as playing indoors is preferred in the winter!
This is a private venue, so we will need everyone to be on time at 1pm sharp (no buffer time, we take the field right at 1). Please bring a light and dark jersey, as well as regular and/or turf cleats as they will have multiple surfaces available. Please be sure to dress warmly as we will be outdoors for most of the time. We are covering many skills, and are bringing some new challenges for the athletes! Some of our crew is flying in for this one, and we look forward to seeing you there (and if you are near the airport and want some gas $$, let me know and I will have you pick up our arrivals)!

As a reminder, our final combine will be on March 16th from 1-4 pm at Ultimate Soccer Arenas and the roster will be finalized that evening. We have found homes for our international athletes to be as well! Start spreading the word about our game against the National Guard as well on March 23rd! Tickets are now on sale.
We thank your for your patience and support as we gear up for our second season. Please post this information in groups and FB and wherever good athletes can be found to "Gear Up" for the Mechanix! As always, if you would like to be removed from this prospects e-mail list, please don't hesitate to let me know.
One final note: 3 New Schools and 1 returning school now are requesting the Mechanix for visits, demo games, and autograph time...without your contributions, these kids would not have new role models in YOU!
Thank you, for all that you have done and will continue to do in ULTIMATE!
