U20 Girls Summer Info

Delaware Valley Youth Ultimate (DEVYL) is creating a U-20 Girls Summer Club Team in 2024  The team will be heading to the USA Ultimate's Youth Club Championships to compete for a National Championship.  The tournament is taking place August 5-7, 2024 in Aurora, Colorado.  


Coaches:


JANINE HLAVATY: My name is Janine, and I am back for a 3rd year coaching the U20 Girls team. I’ve been playing club ultimate for 8 years, and coaching Rutgers Nightshade for 6 years. I'm very excited to continue helping grow our girls youth program and to see the players flourish once they leave our program and continue the NJ frisbee legacy with their respective college/club teams!



OLIVIA WOODRUFF: Hey everyone! I'm very excited to be a part of the DEVYL coaching staff for another year! I've played, captained, and coached for Sparkle Motion, DEVYL, and Rutgers Nightshade. Ultimate frisbee holds a very special place in my heart and I hope to participate in the community for as long as I can.



ANNA MASCIANDARO: Hi y'all, I'm Anna - the coordinator for U20G. In the past, I've been involved with Westfield Dubladies (RIP), Rutgers Nightshade (RU RAH RAH), and PBNJ (Central Jersey exists). I also previously coached DEVYLopmental, but I'm happy to be putting my random frisbee knowledge and organizational skills to use by helping out DEVYL in an administrative and support capacity.

Summer Schedule:

As shown above, tryouts are taking place in March.  The team will be selected at that time as players return to their school based teams for the spring season in April and May.  During that time, we will remain in touch and work on travel logistics.


In June, we will begin regular practices for this team. Practices generally happen two times a week.  Once on the weekend and twice weekday evenings up until the tournament.  It is common for players to go away on vacation and miss a week.  We will develop an exact summer schedule when the team is selected including prioritizing a few practices.  



Youth Club Championships:

Players will likely fly into Denver CO on August 1st.   The general schedule will look like this:

August 1st - Fly Into Colorado - Check into the hotels, and have a team meeting.

August 2nd - Practice and team activity

August 3rd-5th - The YCC tournament takes place at the Aurora Sports Park, Aurora CO

August 5th - Fly back to NJ.

Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend as well.  Many do and have a great time.


Cost:

The cost for the whole program is usually around $1500-$1800.  This is not just for the trip, but for the entire team experience starting with tryouts in February, team practices all summer, high level coaching, and everything to do with the trip.  That includes flight, hotel, food, tournament fees, busing, and a super memorable experience of battling against the top teams in the nation.
