Background ultimate federation

Dear youth ultimate players and coaches in Europe,

As announced, there will be several EYUCamps held over the summer. These are directed at ultimate playing juniors, of all play levels.

An EYUCamp will typically last four days, filled with ultimate drills, but also plenty of time for social activities. The camp will end with a hat tournament of the participants. Additionally,at some locations there will be an EYUCup tournament for national youth teams before or after the camp.

The EYUCamps are directed at all youth players, not only those we see every year in the national youth teams. You do need some ulti experience to participate, but do not need to be a national youth team player.

The experience for the participating kids will not only be ultimate, but also an international meeting. We are aiming to have both the participants and also the coaches from a mix of nations at each camp. Coaching and interaction will happen mainly in English. So a camp shall be a time filled with international action, friendship, and SOTG. All in a setting of high level ultimate learning.

In Spring time, additionally there will be “Train the Trainer” sessions where top EUF coaches are teaching the EUF Ultimate Curriculum to those coaches who will be at the camps in Summer. The first session was very successfully completed in Debrecen in 2017; two more sessions will follow in April and May 2018. So there will be a good mix of well motivated coaches at each camp.
