Opportunities for Coaches

There are multiple opportunities to coach and support players in Vancouver and neighbouring cities. 

Working with Youth

Share your knowledge with the next generation!

Camp & Clinic Instructors

We offer multiple programs that ensure youth have fun while learning to play! These include week-long Day Camps in the Summer and Spring Break for ages 8-14, and 8-week Skills Series that run in all seasons (U14 and U19). 

Read about Day Camp Instructors, or contact youth@vul.ca for more info or to apply. Experienced teaching youth is desired. Applications are accepted year-round.

Club Team Coaches

We run 3 competitive club programs for high-school students: Misfit Ultimate in Vancouver, Vortex Ultimate in Surrey, Canyon Ultimate in the North Shore and Reign Ultimate in Richmond​.

We need dozens of coaches every year to prepare teams for Provincial and National Championships. Visit the Coaches page for each program to learn more (Misfit Coaches, Vortex Coaches, & Reign Coaches). Coaching experience is helpful, but each team has multiple coaches so new coaches are encouraged to apply, as well. Applications are due by April each year.

School Coaches

Ultimate is thriving in Vancouver schools. Most high schools have teams already, others are just starting, and elementary ultimate is growing fast. We help connect coaches with schools that need them. You don't need to be an elite player for all positions. If you are interested, read more about being a School Coach. The school leagues run from March to May, but you can apply at any time.

Working with Adults


The VUL Mentor Program helps new teams have a positive experience in their first few years in the VUL. They help teams with skills, strategies, VUL rules, and spirit. If you'd like to share your knowledge and passion for ultimate, read about being Mentor and apply today. Applications are accepted year-round.

Camp & Clinic Instructors

We run 2-hour Skills Clinics prior to every season, a 6-week Intermediate Bootcamp in the spring, and an 11-week Beginner Camp in the summer. If you'd like to teach ultimate to adults, contact LM@vul.ca today.

Competitive Club Coaching

The VUL sponsors adult club teams every year. To contact teams directly, see the list of active clubs. For more general information about coaching opportunities with club teams, please contact us.
