2018 Youth Ultimate Club Application

Illinois Youth Ultimate is running a u20 Boys and a u17 Boys team. Although locations and times have yet to be determined, the date is set. Tryouts will be on June 16th at Schiller Park (https://bit.ly/2w2uavG) from 3P-6P.

Both teams are seeking players who want to take their game to the next level, and we think the tryout process is a big part of that. The Chicago YCC team is a great way for players to learn from new voices, meet and play with new teammates, and have a great summer of ultimate representing Chicagoland. We think this approach is great for players at the same time as it can yield two very competitive teams.

IYU u20 Boys Team: This team is intended to be an elite team of players from Illinois. Players interested in playing on this team would have to turn 20 after 12/31/2018. According to the revamped rules for eligibility, college freshman will not be eligible. The idea is we keep this our premier team. NV Ultimate and Ultimate Chicago are also running u20 teams to help support the growing number of players interested in continued play.

IYU u17 Boys: We understand that transportation for this group is a challenge, and we also understand that it is one that we will not be able to solve for everyone. Ideally we will be able to find a spot that the most players can access for practice, and we will work with the team and coaches to figure out what is best.

Eligibility: Players must not turn 20 before 12/31/2018 to be eligible for u20 YCC. Players must not turn 17 before 12/31/2018 to be eligible for u17 YCC. For more information, you can look at http://www.usaultimate.org/youth/guidelines.aspx#U20_Player_Requirements. Please note that if you think you may not meet these requirements, exceptions are possible. If you are interested in YCC, we will help you find an exception.

Cost: Tryout is FREE

Cost for the YCC season: $450 (only if you make the team...tryouts are free)
First and foremost, we want to make sure that cost is not a barrier to participation in YCC. If you are interested in a scholarship, please just click the box in the form. This fee covers practices with accredited and experienced coaches, field rental, travel to and lodging at YCC, jerseys, player fees for the tournament, and tons of fun. If you have any questions about the budget, feel free to reach out to YCC DIrector Andy Neilsen at andy.neilsen@gmail.com or 314.313.8082.

Practice Location and times: U20, Schiller Park, likely Wednesday evening and Sunday mornings. Please note that this is subject to possibly change based on field availability. u17, TBA. Specific times and locations are under review.

Tournament location and times: The tournament will take place August 4-6 at the National Sports Center in Blaine, MN. We will leave in vans on the morning of August 3rd, and return to Chicago in the late evening on August 6.

At IYU we would love to make a system that is perfect for everyone, yet that is a near impossibility. So this system is designed to meet the needs of our players while also trying to grow the sport in both numbers and talent. These teams are designed to be competitive. Practices are required and are very structured. However, we will always maintain the notion that sports are supposed to be fun as well. If you have any questions please feel free to contact IYU at Illinoisyouthultimate@gmail.com or andy.neilsen@gmail.com.

Any questions please direct them to illinoisyouthultimate@gmail.com or andy.neilsen@gmail.com
