The club was founded in 2001 and has been in the top 4 of the Midwest in almost every year of our existence. Winning the National Championship in 2017 was their biggest accomplishment to date. In the National Championship run, they coined the term “Scyllabrate” for when they head back to Brewskis, their amazing sponsor bar.
Something nobody knows is that Scylla (pronounced Sill-ah) is that in Greek mythology Scylla, along with the whirlpool Charybdis, guarded both sides of the Straight of Messina and sailors who traversed the straight would have to choose between risking their lives with one or the other.
Charybdis was a whirlpool, but Scylla was a bonafide monster. According to Greek mythology Scylla had six ferocious heads, each with three rows of sharp teeth, sitting on six very long necks. Her body was made out of several growling dogs and twelve feet or tentacles (depending on who you ask). Her necks would extend out to passing ships and grab sailors, crushing them against the rocks she sat on before devouring them. The team likes to think they live up to the badass Scylla name!
The Scylla support local high school and college teams by attending practices, games, tournaments, throughout the year. However, their biggest volunteer event of the year an event called Tri My Best, which is a Triathlon that focuses on children and young adults with developmental disabilities. The team is very involved in Tri My Best and partner with the athletes to motivate them to do their best through the course. It is amazing to see the joy that the children get from realizing their strengths and growing one ability at a time. The club is proud to be a part of this yearly event.
