DiscNW YCC Teams and Youth Club Play - 2013

Hello, Disc Community!

DiscNW plans to send three U19 teams to the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships (YCC) in Blaine, MN on August 10-11.  The teams are mixed, girls', and open.  Tryouts will be held in the late spring.

DiscNW does not plan to send U16 YCC teams in 2013.  However, we will offer free consultation for any parent- or coach- organized U16 team that wishes to apply for bid.  Contact me at youth.director@discnw.org for information.  Bid applications are due March 1.

The DiscNW Youth Strategic Committee discussed this topic at great length.  DiscNW values the YCC experience for the high-level playing opportunity it affords and for the leaders it creates.  However, we have found that our ability to fundraise is limited, and we can reach a larger population of young players by focusing our efforts on programs at home rather than on expensive travel.  Thus, the committee opted to work on an exciting new project in Seattle (TBA soon) rather than to send U16 teams to YCC this year. 

That said, DiscNW wants to support other groups' efforts to send U16 teams in any way that we reasonably can.  DiscNW also created a new task force to focus on youth club development in 2013, including both local and national opportunities.  If you are interested in participating on this task force, which will meet monthly in 2013 to discuss various youth club ultimate topics, please contact me at youth.director@discnw.org.

Warm Regards,

Re: DiscNW YCC Teams and Youth Club Play - 2013

We are working to select tryout dates for the YCC teams that meets the following goals:

A) Avoid conflicts with other youth events, and

B) Keep costs low for players by selecting teams as early as possible (which allows us to make early flight arrangements and players to engage in personal fundraising)

If you are a youth coach or prospective YCC parent or player, please fill out our survey to help us select the optimal tryout timing.  Thanks!
