While USA and Japan took the honours at World U23 Ultimate Chmpionships congratulations should also go to all the GB teams that performed extremely well at the championships.

GB Open came so close to claiming a medal but were just pipped by Japan on Universe Point in their Bronze Medal match.

GB Mixed came 5th. Despite beating Australia in their last game GB missed out on a semi-final place on goal difference.

Also, congratulations to Joe Wynder, GB Mixed for getting the most stats (assists and goals) of all the players in the tournament.

GB U23 MANAGER

Responsible for ensuring all aspects of the U23 2013 program are completed to the best of our abilities, given our resources and the volunteer nature of the organisation.  This is NOT a coaching role, although the ideal person will have experience of coaching or playing at international level, although the correct people skills and approach are just as important.

See this document for full details including how to apply.

 

 


PLAYERS

Age limit?

Players must be between 17 and 23 that year (ie turning 23 or younger in 2015).

The top athletes will be selected in late 2014 and will be required to train throughout 2014/15.  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).  These costs will be significant.

Selecting Teams?

Invite only trials will be held late 2014.
