They had a successful outing in the NLC in 2021; fourth and third in spring and summer, respectively.

According to their announcement, Team Singularity “have created a team structure to provide opportunities for young aspiring athletes to thrive in a competitive environment, gaining valuable experience from professional coaching at a high level while also completing a degree.” The extent that this partnership entails remains to be seen when the season begins.
Founder and CEO Atle S. Stehouwer also mentioned that they are “limiting ourselves quite heavily in terms of the talent pool that we are looking to work with as it’s being limited to being players within a university education, but we believe that the pros outweigh the cons.” And this explains how they built their current roster.
