U18 Victorian Teams
Ultimate Victoria have entered teams into the ‘Australian Youth Ultimate Championships‘ (AYUC) since the AFDA first ran it in 2013. Our U18 Men’s team is called the ‘Bandicoots’ and our U18 Women’s team is call ‘Blaze’.
In 2018, the Blaze won the championships in Adelaide, whilst the Bandicoots came an extremely close second in their division.
Check out the gold medal matches below or some of the awesome highlights from both the Vic Women’s and Men’s teams:

In 2019, the Australian Youth Ultimate Championships will see the introduction of a Mixed division in the U18 competition, therefore Victoria will be recruiting for an U18 Mixed team this year increasing the opportunities for youth to play this great sport and represent their state!
