The Success of Juice
Last season was a year of firsts for Emory men’s club ultimate Frisbee team, Juice. We won our first elite tournament and beat the national runner-up in University of Pittsburgh en route to our best ranking ever, finishing #14 in the country. We are striving to keep our momentum from last year and aspire to be the first Juice team to make it to college nationals. We are working harder than ever with more intense practices, mandatory workouts, scrimmages with local club players, and a renewed sense of urgency at practice.
Why Your Support is Needed
Along with our recent success, the team has grown. Over the last four years, our roster size has doubled, leading to the creation of the Emory B-team, Pulp. Despite record attendance for our fall season, we need your support to continue competing at a high level. An important step in making our push to the national championship tournament is to again finish in the top 25, qualifying for a strength bid (earning a spot to play at the national tournament) for the southeast region. To gain a bid for our region, we will have to perform exceptionally well at all our upcoming tournaments. While we are still locking in our spring schedule, we know that we are traveling to Florida, North Carolina, and Alabama for better out-of-region competition. We need your support to help us cover travel and lodging expenses, equipment needs, and to help us sustain competing at a high level.
Emory Juice is Building on a Tradition
Juice provides an essential element to our college experience and gives us a sense of school spirit. We recognize that we are continuing a legacy started by all our alumni and for that we are grateful. If Juice brings back fond recollections for you, if you are connected to current or former members of Juice, or if you would like to see us continue to strive to succeed at the highest level, please give us a hand. You can also help by sharing this page on your social channels to tell others how they can help Juice.
We will post our complete spring tournament schedule once we finalize the tournaments we plan to attend. If we play close to you, you are invited to come to the fields and cheer us on. Also, follow us on Twitter @EmoryJuice.
