We are seeking YCC Coaches for 2020
Oregon Youth Ultimate is looking for coaches for our 2020 Youth Club Championship Teams (YCCs). 2019 was a very successful year for OYU’s three YCC teams and it included a national title win by our U17 Boys team Eruption! We’re looking ahead to another great season by sending 5 teams to the USA Ultimate Youth Club Championships.
We will be fielding a U-20 Girls Team, U-20 Boys Team, U-17 Boys Team, U-17 Girls Team, and a U-20 Mixed Team.
**All teams dependent on USA Ultimate bidding process.** In 2019 we met all of the requirements to put us in the top tier position and we have a strong chance to receive bids for all teams.
Each year YCCs are held in Minnesota the first weekend in August, but USAU has not yet signed a new contract, so the dates and location have not been confirmed yet. USAU had an extended contract with the Blaine, Minnesota location that ended this year. It is possible that the dates and location could be changed.
We are seeking head coaches, assistant coaches, and local coaches for all of these teams. Please fill out this form if you are interested in either the head coach, assistant coach, or a local coach position. If you have applied last year and were accepted, just let us know about your plans for the 2020 season.
