Storm: Junior Provincial Teams

 

About Storm:

Storm is Newfoundland and Labrador’s junior provincial ultimate team. Athletes are eligible for the team if they are at least 14 years old and no older than 18 by Dec. 31.

In 2020, Storm will be competing at the Canadian Ultimate Championships in Brampton, ON from Aug. 9-12. There are teams in both the women’s and open divisions.

2020 Youth Development Camp

Building off our inaugural development camp in 2019, Ultimate NL is offering an opportunity for athletes to demonstrate and improve the skills they will need for competing at the next level. The six-week camp will include one-hour sessions once a week that teach a specific aspect of the game from a high-level ultimate athlete or coach. Skills testing will follow to gauge the player’s level of understanding.
