Heads of State offers the opportunity for kids and teenagers to get involved in a new sport in a fun casual setting. No uniforms, no tryouts, no worries!
HoS Youth Ultimate will run on Tuesday nights in Term 4 at our home (Willsmere Park) in Kew East, starting on Tuesday October 11th.
Primary-schoolers will be from 5.30 - 6.30pm; Secondary-schoolers will be from 5.30 - 7.00pm.
New players can try it out for free for 2 weeks.
You do not need to form teams yourselves, you can join up as an individual or small group.
We have highly experienced coaches who will be teaching everyone from the very basics and making sure everyone feels included and has lots of fun along the way! Most youth players are absolute beginners, and that all works fine!
Parents are welcome to stay and watch the sessions, or even join in, but are not expected to - you can just drop and pick-up if that suits you.
Youth membership at HoS is $80 for the season (October to February) and includes a reversible (two-sided) singlet and disc to take home.
Info for Parents
Heads of State adheres to Ultimate Victoria's Child Safety Policy, and Child Safe Code of Conduct. You can read more here.
All of our coaches are Level 1 accredited by Ultimate Australia, and encourage fun and inclusive activity rather than competitive development.
Ultimate is a still a fairly new sport in Australian schools. Young people instantly love frisbee whenever they are introduced to the sport. It is growing at a huge rate and we hope to assist that growth.
For younger players, Ultimate Frisbee has the following benefits for child development:
- Non-contact – it’s a great, safe sport for children of all ages, sizes and abilities, and can be played as a mixed gender competition.
- Self-refereed - which encourages a mature response to competitive situations.
- Great for the development of hand-eye co-ordination
- Cheap - no need to pay for expensive equipment, just a once-per-year club membership fee
- Fun - throwing a frisbee is simply FUN! Kids pick up on that straight away and love that it is a different skillset to ball sports. At the same time though, the general field sense is transferable to and from so many other team sports. We do have juniors at the club who play for Victorian u18s and Australian u20 teams, but the emphasis on our sessions is fun and participation for all. So many of the kids really take to this approach that differs from so many other sports they try.
- Easy for parents - all equipment and coaching is provided. You are welcome to stay and watch or drop and go.
