Boulder, Colo. – USA Ultimate, the National Governing Body for the sport of Ultimate in the United States, announced today a new sponsorship with partner Ulticards and a USA Ultimate certified coaching Skills and Drills deck.
Ulticards and USA Ultimate will supply coaching decks to new Certified Coaches through the Five Ultimate Coaching Development Program and will support USA Ultimate’s ongoing efforts to provide educational materials to Coaches, Teachers, and Organizers. Starter sets of Ulticards will be provided to Physical Education teachers, YMCA professionals, and Community rec providers through conferences, programs, and outreach efforts.
"Ulticards worked closely with USA Ultimate to develop a targeted coaching deck focused on fundamentals, skills, drills, and games perfect for our Level I coaching community" said Mike Lovinguth, Manager of Youth and Education Programs for USA Ultimate. "Not only will Ulticards be an incredible asset to our coaches, but they are one of the best tools I’ve seen for use in delivering ultimate in an educational setting. Even a PE teacher with no prior exposure to ultimate, could utilize Ulticards to provide direct instruction, quickly plan an ultimate unit, provide choice to students in class, and offer self-directed activities. We’re extremely proud to partner with them in this environment."
