Georgia Egan-Griffiths announced as U22 Victorian Women’s coach

Georgia Egan-Griffiths is excited to return as coach of the Weedy Seadragons for a second season. “Last campaign was incredible. We’ve got a number of players returning in 2019, many of whom are coming off hugely successful nationals and worlds campaigns. It’s gonna be epic.”

Egan-Griffiths is a founding player and board member of Ellipsis Ultimate and has tirelessly contributed to Victorian ultimate as a player and coach. She began her ultimate career at Melbourne University and quickly became invested in ultimate. Her progression from there sky-rocketed including representing Australia at the 2015 U23 World Ultimate Championships as a Stingray and the 2016 World Ultimate Championships and 2019  Asia-Oceanic Ultimate and Guts Championships as a Firetail. Egan-Griffiths also recently played for the Melbourne Flames in the 2019 Australian Ultimate League and Ellipsis Ultimate at the US Open this year.

“Through this campaign Jasper Simar and I have been pretty focussed on creating a culture of support and openness within the team. We’re totally cognisant of the fact that if you love your team, you’re going to be more motivated to play hard for them. Hopefully we’ll see this come out at nationals this week.”

The Australian U22 Ultimate Championships will take place in Canberra from Friday 30 November 2019 to Sunday 2 December 2019.

Tom Tulett (AC, U22 Men)

Tom Tulett knows no geographic bounds as he makes his mark on the Victorian ultimate scene. Tulett, a former Sydney-side resident, joined Ellipsis Ultimate as co-captain of the inaugural mens team during the 2019 Australian Ultimate Championships season and was drafted to play with the Melbourne Flames for the 2019 Australian Ultimate League however was forced to pull out due to injury.

Tulett is no stranger to elite international ultimate and is a decorated athlete having represented Australia on numerous occasions including most recently at the Asia-Oceanic Ultimate and Guts Championships in Shanghai, China in July this year as part of the Australian Dingoes (mens). Tulett also competed with Ellipsis Ultimate at the US Open in August this year.

He hopes to bring his work ethic and passion for ultimate to the next generation of players in his role as assistant coach of the Leadbeater Possums. Tulett is super excited to share his knowledge and experience with such a talented group of young players. “We have been pushing the boundaries, learning how to use space more efficiently and focussing on fundamental skills to create the strongest team possible.”

The Australian U22 Ultimate Championships will take place in Canberra from Friday 30 November 2019 to Sunday 2 December 2019.

Ellipsis Youth Coaching Grant Series – Simar Dhaliwal (AC, U22 Women)

It has been a full and wholesome year for Simar Dhaliwal, who has made waves on the playing field with her stellar player resume over the last few years.

Dhaliwal joined Ellipsis in 2019 and not only played in the Nationals-winning womens team but was also selected to compete with Ellipsis at the US Open in August this year. Couple this with her selection as one of twelve players for the Melbourne Flames (where she recently featured in an article (https://australianultimateleague.com/news/player-spotlight/melbourne-rookie-has-the-flames-in-her-hand/?fbclid=IwAR1XHM7g_9xOQanmEe0i72H_-vLFydodDvGkTMcm5FbfrMOaqmMjYhS5zA0 for the Australian Ultimate League) [Can you please hyperlink] and her selection on the Bluebottles (mixed) to compete for Australia for the U24 World Ultimate Championships), you wonder how she has had time to add coaching to her arsenal.

Coaching is the next challenge for Dhaliwal. “There is nothing more rewarding than seeing players that you coach over a season or campaign develop to become better players and people. It brings me so much intrinsic value.”

For Dhaliwal, the inspiration to become part of the Weedy Seadragons this year comes from her involvement as a player for the previous two campaigns. “I want to help coach the next generation of ultimate. This campaign is a great step in paving a pathway towards elite ultimate and the U24 Australian representative teams and I would love to be a part of that for young women just as my coaches were for me.”

The Weedy Seadragons boast a dynamic roster of players and Dhaliwal is excited to see the commitment and energy of the team. “The culture in the team is amazing and everyone is just getting around each other! I am excited to help the players realise their potential with their abilities. I’m looking forward to it. It’s going to be the best Weedies campaign yet!”

The Australian U22 Ultimate Championships will take place in Canberra from Friday 30 November 2019 to Sunday 2 December 2019.

Ellipsis Youth Coaching Grant Series – Steph Chong (AC, U22 Mixed)

The first Victorian U22 team coach we are featuring is Steph Chong who is making her debut as assistant coach with the Blue Devils.

Chong joined Ellipsis Ultimate in 2019 and is one of three sisters who have become heavily involved with Ultimate over the past few years. Chong most recently competed at the U24 World Ultimate Championships 2019 with the Stingrays (womens) in Germany and currently plays with Deakin University Ultimate.

Her involvement with the Blue Devils began in 2017 as a player along with fellow Blue Devil’s assistant coach Charlie Medic. “We had such an awesome time playing that we thought there was no better way to stay involved and give back to the U22 program than to become coaches.”

This year Chong has learned more than she had in the years prior which she puts down to her experiences with Ellipsis Ultimate during the 2019 Australian Ultimate Championships and the Stingrays. “This year Ellipsis taught me what it is like to play at a high level, what it takes to be the best and what drive people to want to continue getting better.” Chong also noted that despite a disappointing finish with the Stingrays, it taught her resilience and ignited a desire to improve not only her game but the game of others around her.

Chong wants to make her coaching debut count because of her past experience with great coaches at the youth level. “If it wasn’t for the experiences I had playing U22s, I don’t think I would have taken that next step and played for Ellipsis or represented Australia. I recognise how much of an impact the under 22s program can have on someone’s path through ultimate and I would like to assist and inspire the next generation of Blue Devils in deciding the path they wish to take and help lead them along the path they choose.”

The 2019 Blue Devils promise to be an exciting outfit, according to Chong. “We have had one training session so far and it was super exciting to get our campaign underway. Coaching and the responsibilities that come with it is not something I have much experience in, but I am looking forward to the challenge and what we can achieve.”

The Australian U22 Ultimate Championships will take place in Canberra from Friday 30 November 2019 to Sunday 2 December 2019.

Ellipsis AGM & Grand Final Day Mini Tournament

It’s the off season and there’s not many opportunities to froth together, so Ellipsis is hosting a mega event on the Grand Final Parade public holiday (Friday 27th September). We’ll be hosting a mini-tournament, holding our AGM and then heading out for a social event including dinner and drinks afterwards.

This AGM, the board is proposing three special resolutions to change our constitution to reflect our mission. The changes we’re putting forward are:

  •  We would like to increase our Committee size to include up to four Ordinary Committee Members (promoting community building through ultimate). Currently our constitution allows for two Ordinary Committee Members.
  • We would like to enshrine in the constitution that at least 50% of board members will be female (promoting women’s ultimate in Australia and across the world). The constitution currently allows any gender ratio.
  • We would like to  to enshrine in the constitution that the President must be female (promoting women’s ultimate in Australia and across the world). Currently any member can be elected President. 

Get in touch if you would like any information about these changes or to discuss them with someone from the board.


Date: Friday 27th September (Grand Final Day Public Holiday)
Time: Mini Tournament starts at 3:30pm, AGM at 4pm, followed by then dinner and drinks.
