Yup! In case you haven’t heard, we’re getting that serious! :) So show us what you got!

Season 3 Albert Park – Team Registrations Opening soon

With Season 2 at Albert Park drawing to a close in the next couple of weeks, our attention turns to Season 3 teams.  With Mixed Season about to get into full swing, it’s time to think about FDU returning to Division 1, but still retaining a Division 2 team.

Do you want to join us next season?  Division 1 spots will be preferenced towards those joining us at AMUC, but that doesn’t mean there won’t be spots to play with FDU at Albert Park in Season 3.  Registrations open next week for teams, so we need to know people’s interest ASAP!

Head to the Albert Park Season 3 page for more information and to fill out the survey there to let us know your interest.  Note that if you’ve already filled out the survey for the Mixed Season there’s no need to do it again for Season 3!  Two birds, one stone and all that. :)

Happy Hucking all!
