The Stingrays Broaden and Build philosophy By being part of this campaign we have an incredible development opportunity as players, coaches and people. We believe that this opportunity comes with a responsibility to share our opportunities as broadly as possible so that the greatest number of people benefit from the Stingrays 2019 campaign. As athletes and staff we are committed to providing development opportunities and sharing our learning with the Ultimate community throughout the 2019 campaign.
What are the Stingrays Local Clinics? Local Clinics allow us to teach fundamental skills to athletes in between team Training Camps. The clinics also allow the Stingrays to give back by providing a development opportunity for local ultimate communities around Australia. The clinics will run by a variety of coaches, in a variety of locations across Australia based on content and drills provided by the Stingrays coaching staff. Clinics are open to all ages, genders and skill levels but are not ideal for an introduction to the sport.
Allow us to teach fundamental skills to athletes in between camps with time for them to practice and be proficient before the relevant strategy is introduced
Stingrays provide a development opportunity for local ultimate communities around Australia. Athletes can attend session and learn the fundamental skills of an elite campaign. Coaches can volunteer to coach the clinic and receive coaching notes/material from the Stingrays staff, as well as adding a quality coaching role to their coaching resume. BROADEN AND BUILD!
