Here we are, 25 years after we formed Aftershock, still competing at a level few teams ever attain. We’ve had good seasons and bad, destroyed all our competitors winning World Cup upon World Cup. We’ve also been steamrolled our fair share of times. Aftershock has gone without missing a semifinals for 5 consecutive years and has a season we won one single game. A World Cup we scored 1200 out of 1200 points and a World Cup we scored 7 total points. More than 150 players have worn our colors, 3 total captains, a who’s who of greats for a roster. Three former teammates have passed and here we stand representing the Midwest and the greatest city in the world. Same as we have, same as we will!
Our sponsors deserve to be mentioned because its not possible to compete without them. So to GI Sportz, Richmond, Opie, Rab and Planet Eclipse, Ledz, Jules, Jacko, Heather, thank you all for helping us stay alive and doing what we love. We would also like to thank several people and companies from our past like our current supporters we couldn’t have made it without them.

Twenty-five years is a long time to be a professional team, so long in fact that a great many of our rostered players have never met each other. Some of our current roster wasn’t even born when we founded the team! Last year at the UWL Masters some of us got together to play and hang out. Since we had so much fun, we felt that a 25th anniversary is a perfect time for a reunion!
So this September 11th, 12th and 13th during the UWL Masters, will be the very first Aftershock team reunion. Everyone that has ever played for us is welcome and encouraged to come. We’ve got Robbo coming from England, hopefully Speedy from Brazil and Gary from about 2 blocks away. We also want to ask all our sponsors current and former to please come as well. If you played a single game as a guest or an entire career please feel welcome… We’d love to see you again! Combined we accomplished what no other team has and each of you was a part of that!
