CALL FOR U22 COACH, MANAGER AND SELECTOR POSITIONS
Ultimate Victoria is calling for Head Coaches, Assistant Coaches, Managers and Selectors for the Weedy Seadragons (Women’s) team competing at the Australian U-22 Ultimate Championships to be held 24th-26th November in Sydney.
The inaugural Australian Ultimate U22 Championships occurred in November 2016 in Geelong, which saw 17 teams competing from six states and over 250 players across the three divisions. This included athletes representing Victoria across three teams:
- Weedy Seadragons (Women)
- Leadbeater Possums (Men)
- Blue Devils (Mixed)
Each team performed admirably across the tournament demonstrating a high level of skill and spirit, with the Weedy Seadragons finishing 2nd, and the Leadbeater Possums and Blue Devils both finishing 4th in their respective divisions. The Weedy Seadragons were also crowned Spirit Champions for the Women’s division.
This tournament is a fantastic opportunity for high school, university and other young players to play Ultimate at the state level. From selection events to the tournament itself, players can be a part of a great community event, have the chance to represent their state and be exposed to a pathway opportunity into national teams.
