Over the last 3 years, Valley Ultimate has run a highly successful U20 league throughout June and early July that has served 60+ girls and boys from our area. This summer we will continue to offer this youth playing opportunity.
In addition, Valley Ultimate will be sending two teams, a U20 girls team and a U20 boys team, to compete nationally at the Youth Club Championships in Blaine, Minnesota this August 5th through 7th!
Valley Ultimate’s YCC players must register for our U20 Summer League (by filling out this form) and will be expected to attend all league sessions. Our YCC teams will use league sessions as team practice time with their teammates and coaches. Some league sessions will integrate YCC players with other league participants.
Valley Ultimate YCC players must attend a Practice Weekend and/or a Tune Up Tournament in preparation for the YCC Tournament in Blaine, Minnesota this August.
Note: Tryouts and all league events will take place at the Oxbow Marina in Northampton, MA.
