A Call For Junior Competitive Coaches

Junior Competitive Player
Are you interested in coaching with the PUL Juniors Competitive Program this summer? This year, PUL will be taking formal applications for anyone who is interested in coaching either Soar (Junior Women) or Rogue Squadron (Junior Open). Any interested applicants will be required to submit a Letter of Intent and addressed to the PUL Board of Directors. Please note that you can submit an application as either an individual coach, or pair/team of coaches.
Applications are due by Tuesday, April 3, 2018. Please email them to juniors@pultimate.ca. Please see the information below that outlines what is required to be included in your Letter of Intent.
In addition, I would encourage you to check out the PUL Juniors Competitive Guidelines and Competitive Document which outlines the expectations of coaches, parents and players involved in the PUL Juniors Competitive Program.
If you have any questions, please contact Jocelyn Blazey at juniors@pultimate.ca

2.1 Letter of Intent

To be selected as a coach, an individual will be required to submit a Letter of Intent- the letter can be submitted as either an individual coach or as a team of coaching staff that would like to be considered.  All submissions of the Letter of Intent will be viewed by the Juniors Committee and/or Board of Directors, who will be responsible for appointing the coaches of the program.

The following should be included in the Letter of Intent:

  • What team would you like to coach? (ie. Soar- Jr. Women; Rogue Squadron-Jr. Open)
  • History with PUL

  • Outline any past experience coaching Ultimate

  • Briefly outline why you want to coach with this program or particular team

  • Briefly discuss your philosophy or vision of coaching

  • List any coaching certifications that may be relevant

  • Briefly outline a plan for the season (goals & progressive development)

  • Include a reference for further confirmation of coaching experience if needed

Please note that coaches may be contacted by someone from the selection committee to answer some additional follow-up questions.

Digital Slick: New Website, New Zuluru

PUL Site in da Kitchen

By now many of you have surely noticed a new look for pultimate.ca. It’s cleaner, allows greater posting flexibility, better news feeds, and above all, it is mobility compliant…it should look good on your phone!  Gorgeous.  It also cleans up a lot of back-end stuff that, well, needed cleaning up. And we’ll be using some of the new site functions to better facilitate league communications, event organization, and more! We’ll keep you posted as these roll out.

Huge thanks to Ryan Lowe for making all this happen. And major props are owed too to Ryan Gorman, who generously hosted the old site for many years.

You’ll notice too that Zuluru is looking a little different. This is because Zuluru guru Greg Schmidt just happened to roll out Zuluru 3 a few weeks ago! Again, mobile compliance is a big part of this upgrade.

You might find some of your old bookmarks don’t work, especially for Zuluru, so update accordingly. If you find any bugs or difficulties in the near future, please hit up Ryan Lowe with an email. He’s trouble-shooting the new site, and can pass any Zuluru-related inquiries appropriately.
