NH Ultimate Youth Club Championship

In August 2017, New Hampshire Youth Ultimate will send its first ever U20 Mixed team to compete in the 2017 Youth Club Championships (YCCs) against the most competitive youth teams in the nation.

The NH YCC team represents the very best of New Hampshire's incredible Ultimate talent!  Following NH Youth Ultimate's fourth High School Championship, we have drawn from across the Granite State to asseemble a fantastically, cooperative, talented, spirited, balanced, and athletic mixed gender team.

Players will soon travel to Minnesota to play against and make friends with high school players from across the country, and to watch some of the best club players in the world at the US Open.   


The NH Youth Ultimate YCC coaching staff is both incredible and all-volunteer.  (See their bios below!)  

By the time the team returns from Minnesota next month, our coaches will have collectively given over 300 hundred hours of their attention and expertise to New Hampshire's most promising high school ultimate players.

WE ARE ASKING FOR FUNDS
1) to get our amazing coaches to Minnesota and back to guide, inspire and support our youth in this 3 day national tournament, and 
2) to provide the Financial Aid necessary to ensure each spirited and tallented athlete who has made this All Star NH High School team can afford to go to Minnesota to represent the Granite State in national competetion.
