2017 Women’s Season: Tryout info

Ellipsis Ultimate are excited to announce the selection process for our 2017 Women’s Team.

We will be holding two tryout events on the following Saturday mornings:

  1. Saturday 29th October, 8*-11am
  2. Saturday 5th November, 8*-11am

We invite anyone who is interested, and who resonates with our club’s vision, to attend the first tryouts. Depending on numbers, the second tryout may be by invitation only.

Selection Criteria

Lee Baker, Matt Hill, and Greta Murdoch will be selecting a team of around 16-18 women and will be making their decisions based on the following things:

  • Throwing strength
  • Coachability
  • Game sense
  • Willingness to improve
  • Knowledge of the game
  • Athleticism
  • Reliability

To give us an idea of how many people to expect at the tryouts, we are asking that everyone who is interested in coming along fills out an ‘expression of interest’ form (button below).

A professional club

One of our goals as a club is to increase the level of professionalism amongst ultimate teams in Australia. We have grown up playing other sports at various levels, and have noticed that even local community sporting clubs generally operate more professionally than most clubs/teams in the ultimate community.

If you are interested in being a part of our club, it is important that you read our <a href="http://ellipsisultimate viagra naturel pas cher.com/about/”>Vision and Mission statements, and make sure they are ideals you would like to be involved with.

Season Calendar

We have put together a rough calendar outlining the required dates for all team trainings and tournaments. This is subject to change once tournament dates become available. Please read the calendar carefully, and make note of sessions you are unable to attend in the form below.

PLEASE NOTE:  Weekend trainings will now be held on Saturdays rather than Sunday, see Calendar for up-to-date information.

Team Expectations

Ellipsis has already put significant work into securing funding and sponsors for the 2017 season. This will enable the club to provide coaching, uniforms and other benefits, free of charge (or at least heavily discounted) for team members.  As such, a high level of commitment is expected from all team members, both on and off the field. All trainings are compulsory, and all players will be asked to give back to the club through coaching, administration or other tasks.

We expect the following things from all team members.

  • A commitment to improve your:
    • skills
    • fitness
    • knowledge of the game
    • efforts
  • Respecting your teammates:
    • doing your rehab
    • attending training
    • arriving on time
    • knowing the game plan
    • putting team success and improvement above individual feelings
  • Representing the club:
    • showcasing the highest level of Spirit of the Game at all times
    • always giving 100%
    • offering to help coaches/league coordinators/tournament directors
    • assisting the club in promoting Women’s Ultimate
    • playing as if you were representing Ellipsis regardless of the event (league/unigames/Melb Hat/etc)

*The tryout process will begin at 8am, so make sure you have done everything you need to do to be ready to start then.
