GROWING THE SPORT

Bauhaus is committed to the development of women's ultimate and has been the birth place for many of Australia's finest women's ultimate players. We believe that true development of the sport lies not only in building our skills on the field, but also in building a leaderful community, networks of friendships across the globe, and clear pathways for junior players to access the sport.

Here are some of the ways we are investing in the growth of our sport. Let us know if you can help!

Juniors 

This year, we've added a Bauhaus Juniors team to our club!

Every Tuesday from 4-6pm Bauhaus is running sessions for high school girls at Reservoir Reserve, Grange Rd, Kew (see Where to find us). This session precedes one of the club's training for 2016. The first 2 sessions are free and joining for a season will cost $20. Come down and say hi! 

Contact Kaitlin Richards at bauhaus.juniors@gmail.com for more information.
If you'd like to be involved in coaching our youngest members, let us know here.

Leadership Development

We believe that leadership skills should be taught to all players, regardless of whether they are in a formal leadership position or not. Bauhaus is running the first leadership development program this November. 

Watch the video to hear our coach tell you all about it! All Bauhaus club members are welcome and encouraged to attend

The LDP is currently running. We'll tell you all about it when it's finished, and let you know when the next one is starting!

Universities 

Bauhaus is supporting women's ultimate in universities by hosting an annual tournament in the lead up to the Australian University Games (AUGs). The first AUG Warm Up tournament was held in September 2015 and was open to all university women's teams and women's clubs. Follow Bauhaus Ultimate on Facebook to receive updates about this tournament in the future. 

Ultimate around the world

We want to build a community of strong female athletes with connections all around the world. 

In 2014 we formally made a sister team relationship with HUCK from Tokyo, Japan. We now share dinners (when in the same country!), practice games, fun events and news with our Japanese friends.

As part of building sister team relationships we encourage intercontinental exchanges between players. In 2013 our head coach Snail (Mish) Phillips played the Japanese National season with HUCK, and in 2014 HUCK's captain Yukari Kobori played the Australian National season with us.

We also love seeing our athletes represent internationally. Check out our Bauhaus girls at the 2015 Asia Oceanic Ultimate Championships!
