There are a lot of parallels between the 2017 DC Breeze squad and the one from 2016. In addition to having the same record and ending the season in a similar fashion, the team scored virtually the same number of goals. D.C. had 392 this past season and 396 in 2016, a franchise high.
BREEZE PODCAST: In this last episode of the 2017 season, host Greg Esser sits down with two-year Breeze superstar Alan Kolick to discuss some pretty significant topics. In addition to a deep dive into how the Breeze playoff victory over the Montréal Royal and subsequent loss to Toronto Rush played out, they cover knee injuries, new babies, and… a possible hiatus in 2018?!

The 2017 USA Ultimate Mid-Atlantic Club Regionals begin tomorrow morning in Milford, Delaware with coveted spots at October’s USAU Club Nationals on the line. All three divisions — Women’s, Mixed, and Men’s — are loaded with strong DC/Baltimore area teams, some names familiar and some new. To most players’ delight, Nationals will return to Florida for the first time in five years after being held there every year for a decade through 2012. The 2017 National Championships will take place in Sarasota October 19-22, while San Diego was selected as the host city for the 2018 and 2019 tournaments.
The 2017 DC Breeze season finished in a very similar fashion to the previous year. With a 10-4 record, the team claimed the No. 2 seed in the East Division Playoffs. After winning their hard earned home playoff game, the Breeze moved on to play division winners Toronto Rush, and for the second straight year they lost to the Rush in the Division Final.
