Youth Club Championships

CUTTHROAT 2017 TRYOUT REGISTRATION

WHAT IS CUTTHROAT?

Colorado Cutthroat is based on 3 tenets:

  • Character: Cutthroat players treat ourselves, our teammates, our opponents, our coaches, and all others with respect. We hold ourselves to high spirit of the game standards as teams and individuals, and work to represent ourselves, our team, and our state in the most positive light.
  • Community:  Cutthroat is a close and caring community. We take care of each other, emotionally and physically. We work to bring new members into our community and support the development of everyone within our community.
  • Competition: As the elite youth club team, we are competitive. Regardless of who we play or what the score, we are constantly pushing ourselves and our teammates to play as competitively as possible
WHAT IS YCC?

YCC is a national tournament that takes place  in Minnesota. Participating cities each send a boys’, girls’, and mixed team. We’re looking to send a U16 team this year, too.

WHY IS YCC AWESOME?

Playing for one of Colorado’s YCC teams is an incredible experience. You get to play alongside some of the best youth Ulimate players from around the Denver/Boulder metro-area. The coaching corps are highly experienced, passionate, and dedicated (and most of ‘em still play ultimate pretty darn well, too). The tournament itself is an amazing experience to play high-level ultimate with and against youth from all over the country.

DO WE PRACTICE?

Yes! We practice once a week all summer. Also, most YCC team members play in the Denver or Boulder Youth League.

Practice Dates: Boys A Boys B Girls U17
NORMAL DATE Mondays 4-7 Saturdays 9-12 (except Monday 6/19 and Monday 6/26- no 6/17 or 6/24) Saturday 12-3pm Monday 4-7pm

Tryout Registration

CUTTHROAT 2017 TRYOUT REGISTRATION
Register early to receive all future information about tryouts and to have coaches begin to scout you for their teams! There is a $20 fee for boys to participate, and a $5 fee for girls to participate in the tryout series. If this (or paying with a credit/debit card is an issue for you or your family, please contact me directly at hannah@altitudeyouthultimate.org)

DOES IT COST MONEY?

We expect 2017 costs to be between $500-$600 plus your own travel to MN-- we have to pay for practice fields, insurance, hotels, and purchase jerseys and gear. We do everything possible to keep expenses reasonable, and we never disqualify someone if they can’t pay. We also have financial aid for those in need.
