Youth Club Champs 2017

U20 girls coach Leila Tunnell

Over the last 3 years, Valley Ultimate has run a highly successful U20 league throughout June and early July that has served 60+ girls and boys from our area. This summer we will continue to offer this youth playing opportunity.

In addition, Valley Ultimate will be sending two teams, a U20 girls team and a U20 boys team, to compete nationally at the Youth Club Championships in Blaine, Minnesota this August 5th through 7th!
