Seeking coaches for paid roles in Sporting Schools program

Ultimate Australia’s new primary school program, Ulti-Mates, has been included into the Australian Government’s Sporting Schools program.

UV are now seeking interested individuals to deliver the program in primary schools across the state in Term 3.

This is a paid role, with regular casual work. Coaches can earn $50 per session, with travel allowances available for out-of-town coaching.

You don’t have to know all the technical aspects of Ultimate Frisbee to be a great school coach. What’s important is that you are professional in your conduct, can engage well with kids and that you are passionate about Ultimate Frisbee.

School coaching is one of the best ways to grow the sport. It’s an excellent way to further develop your own skills and understanding of the game. It’s also a great way to ‘give back’ to the sport we love.

Coaches are provided with a kitbag and Ulti-Mates coach manual. The manual includes activities, games, lessons, skill descriptions, delivery tips and suggested modifications to support the successful delivery of the Ulti-Mates program.

To be registered as an Ulti-Mates coach, you need to do the following (no cost to members)

  • Have a valid volunteer Working With Children Check (apply here)
  • Complete UV’s online Instructor Induction (available here)
  • Complete AFDA’s Level 1 Coaching certification online (available here)

Once you have completed all three, we will be in contact with any opportunities at schools in your area.

Members who have already completed the UV Instructor Induction and AFDA’s Level 1 certification before May 2021 are already eligible to be a Sporting Schools coach, and can express their interest in the program by contacting us.
