Posted: January 31, 2017 01:48 PM

Colorado Springs, Colo. (Jan. 31, 2017) – USA Ultimate, the national governing body for the sport of ultimate in the United States and proud member of the U.S. Olympic Committee, is excited to announce the athletes selected to attend tryouts for the 2018 U.S. U-24 National Teams. 

Of the more than 550 athletes who applied, invites were sent to 180 – 90 men and 90 women – in this initial round. The remaining applicants have been placed on a wait list. Several spots at each tryout are still available, with additional invitations to be awarded at the coaches’ discretion during the 2017 college season. The coaches will take performances during the college season into account when determining which athletes will be offered those currently unfilled tryout spots. In all, USA Ultimate expects 100 men and 100 women to try out for the U-24 National Teams.

Two tryouts will be held in June. The first will be in Columbus, Ohio, June 17-18. The second will be held the following weekend, June 24-25, in Denver. Roster selections will be made by the three teams’ coaching staffs, with the input of selection assistants and members of the USA Ultimate staff. The teams' head coaches and assistant coaches were announced last fall. 

Those trying out will be competing for spots on either the men’s, mixed or women’s national teams that will compete at the World Flying Disc Federation’s World Under-24 Ultimate Championships to be held January 7-13, 2018, in Perth, Australia.
