For the fifth year in a row, the Mystic Collegiate Select XV will be traveling to Montreal, Quebec on Friday, June 16th to take on the Lower Canada Voyageurs!
Due to the program’s success, we expect to have a large prospective player pool once again this year. To find the best collegiate talent, we will be holding try-outs at Pine Banks Park starting on Tuesday, May 30, 2017. If you are interested in trying out, or know of any collegiate players who would be great additions to the Mystic family, please contact Ben Nathan ([email protected]) by April 29th.
This trip has helped build the club in the few years it has been active, with a number former Collegiate Select XV members going on to don the Mystic Jersey. Those players include Diego Maquiera, Chris Frazier, Joe Hastry, Thomas Thekaekara, Aaron Smith, Michael Rudzinsky, and Martin Keuchkerian. Like any tour, the trip is expensive and requires player travel and housing for the weekend. While corporate sponsorships will offset some of the cost, donations of any amount are always greatly appreciated. If you would like to make a contribution to the trip or are interested in sponsorship opportunities, please contact Ben Nathan at [email protected].
A tentative schedule for practices are:
Tues 5/30 – 8-10pm
Thurs 6/1 – 8-10pm
Tues 6/6 – 8-10pm
Thurs 6/8 – 8-10pm
Tues 6/13 – 8-10pm
Thurs 6/16 – 8-10pm
Stay tuned for more updates as the trip approaches!
