    • ◦ 9-11am; June 18, 19, & 21
  • Silver Lake Summer League – SCYU’s oldest league is vital to maintaining our relationship with LA Parks; and these young kids need some energetic coaches!
    • Tuesday evening practices; 45-min games on Saturday mornings; June 11 – August 4
  • Lincoln Middle School Youth Pick-Up & Beginners Clinics – Come teach some skills and drills to Santa Monica youth!
    • Fridays 7-9pm; June 15, 22, 29, July 6, 13, 20, 27, August 3, 10

Reasons to get out and volunteer: • Get those community service hours done for school!

  • We work with 80% under-resourced students in the summer, most of whom have never even heard of ultimate; you could be their first coach.
  • You have some down time but want to stay active.
  • You want a good excuse to get out from behind your desk and help out.
  • It just feels good!

       We look forward to seeing and working with a lot of you this summer! And please spread the word that we’re hiring: tell your teams, tell college players, tell your under-employed and freelancing friends. All in all we will need at least 8 coaches this summer.

       If you’re booked this summer but still want to make a huge difference, consider making a tax deductible donation and/or making all of your Amazon purchases through the SCYU AmazonSmile link below. For $100 we can provide discs for one school; for $250 we can send two coaches into a school for three days! Together we can grow ultimate in LA and beyond. Moving forward together,
