Calling all Under 22 players for the 2021 Australian Under 22 Ultimate Championships
Ultimate Victoria is now accepting expressions of interest for all athletes eligible to represent the state at Under 22 level (born 1999 or later) in 2021. Read more to find out how to sign up.
Upper limit: To be eligible to play you must be born ON or AFTER 1 January 1999
Lower limit: Victorian U22 teams will only be accepting players who are 15 years and older as at April 1st, 2021.
Victoria will be sending four teams to the Championships in 2021. There will be an Men’s team, a Women’s team, and two Mixed teams.
The Mixed A (Blue Devils) team will be “Victoria Metro” and will train in regular sessions held in Melbourne. The Mixed B (Greater Bilbies) team will be “Victoria Country” and will have 3-4 full-day training camps on weekends. The location of these training camps will depend on the composition of the team, aiming to have a roughly even spread in travel requirements for players.
There are no geographical restrictions on eligibility for these teams – where you live does not solely determine which team you can play for.
- Saturday April 17th at Albert Park, Melbourne
- Sunday April 18th at Albert Park, Melbourne
