Volunteer of the Month – August 2018

Ultimate Victoria would like to say a HUGE thank you to Carlos Castelblanco. Congratulations Carlos, you are Ultimate Victoria’s Volunteer of the Month!

Carlos first captained Hot Chilly in 2014. This was a formative time for the club, as shortly after 2014 many of the founding Chilly players retired from elite competition. Carlos spearheaded the transition of the club to a new core of players, culminating in their competition at the 2018 World Ultimate Club Championships in Ohio, USA. Carlos captained Chilly through this recent campaign. Huge shout out to Laura who was team manager for the campaign. Word on the street is that Laura and Carlos are a team in all things ultimate!

Carlos has been president of Chilly since 2017. As president he has taken responsibility of everything from jersey designs to sponsorship. Off the field he has been a pivotal mentor, friend, and support for a host of Colombian players that have moved to Melbourne. Further, Carlos has volunteered his time to youth development by helping out at VicFlick.

His commitment and intense love for the team has been recognised by his fellow club mates with his nomination as Ultimate Victoria’s Volunteer of the Month.
