Opportunities for Coaches

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

Working with Adults

Mentors

The Mentor Program helps new teams and captains learn about ultimate & spirit, develop new skills & strategies, and generally have a positive experience in their first few years in the VUL. If you'd like to share your knowledge and passion with others, become a Mentor today. Applications are accepted year-round.

Camp & Clinic Instructors

We run short Skills Clinics at the start of every season, a 6-week Intermediate Bootcamp in the spring, and an 11-week Beginner Camp in the summer. If you're interested in teaching ultimate to adult players, contact troe.weston@vul.ca today. 

Competitive Club Coaching

The VUL sponsors Competitive Adult Club teams each summer. Women's Teams - Traffic, Zephyr and Wendigo and an Open Team - Blackfish - are all looking for coaches this year. Please contact troe.weston@vul.ca if you would like to be put in touch with any of these teams to find out more information or to apply.

Working with Youth

Club Team Coaches

The Misfit Program is a competitive club team program for High School students. We need dozens of coaches each summer to lead, develop, and prepare teams for Provincial and National Championships. Read more about being a Misfit Coach. Applications are due by April each year.

Camp & Clinic Instructors

We offer multiple programs that aim to ensure youth to have fun learning to play! These include our week-long Day Camps for 8-14 year-olds in the Summer and over Spring Break, and our 8-week Skills programs for high-school and elementary players that run in all seasons. Why not share your knowledge with the next generation?

If you're interested, read more about being a Day Camp Instructor, or contact william.arlotta@vul.ca about becoming a Skills Program Instructor. Experienced teaching youth is desired. Applications are accepted year-round.

School Coaches

Ultimate is thriving in Vancouver schools. Many high schools have teams already, others are looking to start teams, 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.
