The Coach & Organizer Convention is going virtual in 2021!
The coach and organizer sessions are now separate!
Even though we won't be in the same room, many of the best and brightest organizers and coaches from around the country will still be together to learn from and engage with each other.
Come join us!
USA Ultimate is committed to increasing access to the Coach & Organizer Convention for Black, Indigenous, People of Color (BIPOC) members of the ultimate community. Through the Delrico Johnson Fund, we will cover up to $1,000 in registration fees for BIPOC attendees. If you are interested in any amount of financial assistance for your registration fees, please fill out this quick Google Form.
We encourage registrants who are able to make a donation to the Delrico Johnson Fund via your registration or your USA Ultimate member account to help cover the costs of BIPOC organizers and coaches who may not others be able to attend the convention.
