Youth Club Championships (YCC)

USA Ultimate’s Youth Club Championships (YCC) is a national youth club tournament held annually in Blaine, MN in August. Top youth players who excel in both skill and spirit have an opportunity to represent Atlanta and compete with other top youth teams around the country.

Competition divisions include under 17 (U17) and under 20 (U20) ages for girls, mixed, and boys. Atlanta adult players & volunteers coach teams practices throughout the summer before traveling to compete in YCC.

Player Eligibility

  • U20 players must not turn 20 in the calendar year they participate
  • U17 players must not turn 17 in the calendar year they participate
  • Players must be a middle or high school student within the preceding academic school year
  • Players must also have competed in a qualifying event the preceding school year (E.g. High School State Championships, or AFDC Juniors’s YCC tryout league)

Tryouts usually run from March – April and will be announced in the AFDC Juniors Newsletter, AFDC webpages and through social media channels.

YCC Coordinator & Volunteers

Much thanks to Atlanta’s YCC Coordinator, Lynda Maria, who makes these teams possible! The YCC Coordinator oversees our program and ensures eligibility with USAU, recruits and selects team coaches, schedules season calendars, manages field reservations, and communicates critical dates & information to team managers and parents. Volunteer coaches, team managers, and supporting hands also help our teams succeed!

This is Lynda’s last year, so if you are interested in becoming YCC Coordinator next season, please contact to express interest and potentially shadow operations this year! 

Follow along to support Atlanta’s teams this season!
