Ultimate NL is pleased to introduce Annika Bieger, who will run ultimate clinics this summer for kids and community groups.

Annika began playing ultimate at St. Paul’s Junior High and Holy Heart of Mary, and says she has “loved and continued to play ever since!” She’s played on a variety of school teams and participated in after-school ultimate programs and adult scrimmages and continues to play recreationally.

“I often helped coached my high school team and now I look forward to sharing my skills and experience!” she says.

Last summer, Ultimate NL led 38 clinics involving over 600 kids of all ages in communities around St. John’s.

Community groups and sports organizations interested in offering clinics to youth participants may contact Annika at annika@ultimatenl.ca.

“I’m thankful to have received this award, and that the province recognizes the talents of all our athletes and is willing to support us so we can keep following our dreams,” said Dyer.
