GB U23 2013

Are you under 23 and interested in representing GB at the World Championships in 2013?

World Ultimate Under 23 Championships will be held in Toronto, Canada in July 2013.  GB will be sending Mixed, Womens and Open teams. 


More details here

Age limit?

You must be between 17 and 23 that year (ie turning 23 or younger in 2013). 

Commitment?
The top athletes will be selected in summer 2012 and will be required to train throughout 2012/13.  This includes individual physical & skill training programs as well as travelling to attend regular team trainings. 

Costs?
GB players are all self-funded, so you will need to pay for everything yourself (including travel, kit, training, accommodation and tournament costs etc).  As the tournament is in Canada these costs will be significant.

Selecting Teams?
Invite only trials will be held late summer / early autumn 2012. A number talent spotters have been recruited across the country.  Their job is to ensure that the best players are invited to trials. They will be doing this by attending tournaments and speaking to team/club/Uni leaderships amongst other things.   

Are you interested?
Trials will be invite-only, but if you are interested in being "spotted" please send an email to gbu23@ukultimate.com with the following information:
  Name (inc nick name),
  Gender,
  DoB,
  Email,
  Phone, 
  Where you live (include summer/out of term time location if different),
  Very short summary of Ultimate experience (how long you have played and with which clubs is enough) 

Have a question?
Please send an email to gbu23@ukultimate.com and we'll do our best to answer or put you in touch with one of our spotters.

Please pass this on to your team lists and any individuals you think might be interested.  Make sure the best players in your club get this information!

 

Thanks,
