The USFHA Festival is a landmark international event that attracts teams from all over the world to beautiful, sunny Florida! The fun never ends as the Festival teams enjoy team events together on the beach, hanging out with their coaches at pool parties, spending time with all of the Club families at Mayhem’s Thanksgiving dinner banquet, and more… But please note, the experience is a major commitment in terms of time and finances for all parties involved, to pay for flights, hotel room and club costs several months in advance, and should not be pursued without serious consideration. Committing to a Festival Team– at any age– requires a commitment to attend weekly practices throughout the fall, team bonding events, and to support the overall success of the team on and off the field. This is an opportunity not only to celebrate the love for the game, but to be exposed to different styles and levels of international competition, and to potentially be assessed by collegiate recruiters (U16 and U19 level only). Festival is truly a memorable experience for all parties involved.
Mayhem will be bringing the following teams to the 2017 Festival:
- 1 x U12 Team (2017 fall 6th & 7th graders 7 v.7)
- 2 x U14 Teams (2017 fall 7th & 8th graders- 7 v. 7)
- 3 x U16 Teams (2017 fall 9th & 10th graders- 11 v. 11)
Players are permitted to try-out for older teams, but may not play below their assigned age group. The rosters for the two U16 and U14 teams will not be determined until the fall; players will simply be invited to commit to a Festival team or to a Home team within 48 hours of the Round 2 tryouts.
