  • Participate in the USAU Coaching Development Program to learn the skills and techniques fundamental to coaching Ultimate teams of all levels;

  • Help start a team at your local middle school, high school, university or your own child's school;

  • Contact USAU for additional suggestions on where to look for coaching opportunities.

 

Observing 

Are you interested in the rules of the game?  Would you enjoy the fast-paced job of following a game down on the field, watching every play, while moving along with the players? In addition to arbitrating on disputed calls and handling conduct issues, observers assist with keeping time, keeping score, serving as an adult "supervisor" at youth games, acting as an official source for reporting information to/from a game, and helping inform players about how the game is expected to be played.  With the tremendous growth our sport is experiencing, more and more observers are needed.  Become a certified observer today! 

Open D4 0671 v2
  • Attend an Observer Training Clinic and become a certified observer;

  • Become an Instructional Observer.  These game officials serve in a distinct (and somewhat reduced) role, compared with standard Observers, and focus primarily on providing instructional information about the game, helping players learn to self-officiate, and monitoring logistical and other factors necessary to facilitate game play.
