The Misfit Winter Program aims to develop Vancouver's elite youth ultimate players during the winter months (January - March) in preparation for the summer club season.
The Winter Program runs for 11 weeks: each week players will participate in one on-field practice to develop ultimate-specific skills and one off-field workout to work on strength and injury prevention. The off-field workouts follow a high quality strength and conditioning program provided and delivered by Lift Performance and Rehab, tailored for ultimate players. The program will have a 1:5 coach to player ratio and aim to prevent injuries, build strength, and help athletes move better, faster, and stronger.
Players will also have the opportunity to compete in a youth ultimate tournament in March.
Space is limited - a maximum of 46 players will be selected and divided into open and women's teams.
The women's team will be coached by Edward Guo and Victoria Lam. The open's side will be coached by David Stelck and Alexander Lam.
As the Winter Program is geared towards Vancouver's elite players, selections will be made based on players' previous competitive ultimate experience and their competitive ultimate goals.
The Misfit Winter Program runs 11 weeks beginning on Monday, January 13th and ending on Monday, March 23th.
