Colorado Springs, Colo. (March 31, 2021)—USA Ultimate is currently searching for individuals to serve as coaches of the U.S. National Team for several international events in 2022, including the World Games and the World Flying Disc Federation’s World Junior Ultimate Championships (WJUC) and World Beach Ultimate Championships (WBUC).
After a one-year postponement, the World Games are scheduled to occur next summer, July 7-17, in Birmingham, Ala. Featuring a mixed ultimate tournament, this quadrennial, multisport event for non-Olympic sports is the most prestigious on the international ultimate calendar.
For the World Games, USA Ultimate is searching for a head coach, an assistant coach and a selection assistant.
After the COVID-19 pandemic caused the cancellation of the 2020 edition of WJUC, the event returns in 2022 with a date and location yet to be determined. Although most of the coaching staff that was announced nearly two years ago is still intact, USA Ultimate has re-opened its application process for a pair of assistants – one each for the men’s and women’s teams.
Holdovers include Reid Koss (head coach) and Andy Neilsen (assistant) for the men’s team, and DeAnna Ball (head coach) and Jason Adams (assistant) for the women’s team.
Originally scheduled for the fall of 2021, WBUC will instead take place next April in Southern California. USA Ultimate is seeking an assistant coach for each of the men’s, mixed and women’s teams.
USA Ultimate announced the head coaches for the three teams last spring – Bryan Jones (men’s), John Groess (mixed) and Samantha Broaddus (women’s).
