Volunteers

Our sport is run by volunteers. Without them, Ultimate Victoria and all our clubs would cease to exist. So, along with the AFDA, Ultimate Victoria run the REAP Volunteer Management Program. You can find out more about it here – REAP.

If you would like to join the team at Ultimate Victoria, below are some positions that we are looking to fill. Get in contact with us for more information.

Safe Play Quiz

Between UV and AFDA there are a number of policies in place related to providing all participants with a safe experience playing ultimate. The safe play policies are all listed on our Policies page.

Our short Safe Play Quiz is an “open book” test to ensure you understand the most important elements of the policies, and help reduce the risk of injury or harm to players.

Recommended for: pick-up organisers, team captains, team coaches


Club Committee Induction

This course is for volunteers new to a role on the committee of an incorporated club. It will take you through the features and functions of an incorporated club, the key roles and responsibilities committee members have, how to conduct effective meetings, handling member complaints, and more.

With many clubs holding their AGMs in October and November this is a great opportunity to get your new committee members acclimatised with their new role.

Recommended for: club committee members (both recently appointed and returning)


UV Instructor Induction

This course will take you through preparing and running sessions for brand new players. Topics include designed a session plan, teaching basic throwing/catching skills, diagnosing common throwing mistakes, and considerations for inclusive coaching.

Completing this course and submitting all pre-requisites also qualifies you for paid coaching work at schools around Victoria through UV programs.

Recommended for: anyone who will be teaching new players how to play this year!


UV Selector Induction

This course is ideal for anyone who will be involved in preparing tryout sessions and selecting teams for clubs going to tournaments. It outlines qualities selectors should have, the process for creating selection criteria, planning a tryout session, identifying unconscious biases, and strategies on delivering feedback.

Recommended for: team selectors, team captains, team coaches


UV Child Safety Practices Induction

With the recent release of UV’s new Child Safety policy, we have put together this course and exam as a supplement to Sport Integrity Australia’s course on child protection and safeguarding to guide flying disc club volunteers on providing a child-safe environment for junior participants.

These two courses are strongly recommended for administrators and coaches at clubs running junior programs.

Recommended for: club committees, team coaches

Does your club want to host a new tournament? Or are you keen to help your club with running a reoccurring event? This online course teaches you everything you need to know to plan and host a safe and enjoyable ultimate event.

The online component of the Development Coach (Level 2) accreditation is also available, which prepares prospective coaches for club teams and university teams. UV will deliver the face-to-face component of this course locally once sufficient numbers have commenced the online component.

Recommended for: team coaches looking to progress to being a club coach, a state team coach, or a national team coach
