Ellipsis are putting together an elite Mixed team for the 2016 season. The team will be entering the Victorian Mixed Ultimate Championships (date TBC – maybe Aug 27-28) and the Australian Mixed Ultimate Championships (Oct 21-23). We’re currently looking for expressions of interest for this team.
We’ll be holding two tryouts, one on the 6th and one on the 13th of August. Depending on the number of EOIs, a limited number of players will be invited to attend the tryouts.
It is an expectation for all selected players that they will attend both tournaments (VMUC and AMUC) and four training sessions in the lead up to AMUC (Sat Sept 24th, Oct 1st, 8th & 15th). These training sessions will mostly involve just playing matches against ourselves and hopefully against other AMUC teams.
Selection will be based on the following criteria:
- Commitment to our vision and mission.
- Ultimate ability and on field fit.
- Availability to attend trainings and tournaments.
- Future development prospects.
The selectors for the team (appointed by the Ellipsis board) are:
Matt Hill, Huy Vu, Cat Phillips and Georgia Egan-Griffiths.
Feel free to contact Cat at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about the mixed season/application process.
To submit your EOI, fill in the form below by Friday 22nd July.
Pending interest, we may also enter a second team at VMUC. If it goes ahead, this team will be more focused on development rather than winning the tournament, and is an opportunity for Ellipsis members who may not want to commit to AMUC. If this is you, please also fill out the form and mention your preference in the ‘other’ section.
