Alpha Girls extended tryouts on May 15th – registrations still accepted

Missed the Alpha girls’ tryouts this past weekend? You can still register for our extended tryouts which will be held on Monday, May 15th from 6:00-9:00pm at Musqueam John Hendry NE Field in Vancouver. See the link below to register.

Here’s a word from the head coach, Troë Weston:

Our team is all about getting our players to reach their full potential to help you take the next step in your ultimate careers. Alpha Club works hard to prepare our players for future club opportunities at the National as well as International level. I want to make this a strong program that girls want to be a part of but at the same time maintain good relationships with the other teams in the lower mainland. We want to boost you up, push you to be your best as you play amongst other top players while at the same time creating a positive and welcoming atmosphere.

Even if you are considering playing for other Club teams, we would be happy to have you come out, talk to the coaching staff about the team and take advantage of this additional playing opportunity.

BC Provincial Team selections – 2016 Alpha team rosters

BC Ultimate is proud to announce the rosters for our 2016 Provincial Junior Men’s and Women’s teams!
On May 1st over 150 of the best and brightest BC Junior Ultimate players came to Empire Field in Vancouver for the teams’ open tryouts. A total of 41 BC High Schools were represented.
“This year’s tryouts for the Provincial team were the most competitive in the history of the program”, commented former Provincial team member and current women’s head coach Rena Kawabata. “We are so excited to keep seeing the level of juniors talent in British Columbia getting higher, the future of our sport looks so bright.”
Over the course of 4 hours, head coaches Jon Hayduk and Rena Kawabata along with a dozen other assistants and evaluators put the players through their paces.
“The explosion of Ultimate at the High School level in BC has been incredible” noted BCU GM Brian Gisel, “The talent pool is very deep in the province and our 2016 squads will reflect that.”
Following the Open tryout 80 players made the cut to the invite tryouts on May 4th. Players, coaches and evaluators went through 3 more hours of drills and scrimmages. The depth of talent was impressive and in the end selecting the players for each team was extremely difficult.
After some difficult choices, the following players have been selected to the BC Provincial junior program, which will compete as “Alpha” for the 2016 summer season. BCU would like to thank the participants and we look forward to watching all BC junior teams this summer.
