If you love playing ultimate, you’ve come to the right place! Each spring we select a group of players who commit to training together through the season and competing at regional tournaments and NZ Ultimate Championships. If you want to take your skills to the next level, our Vixenz competitive squad is for you!

Click here to fill out an EOI!
Our competitive season starts at the end of October 2018 and we welcome all women who want to share in our spirit and values!
We are looking for players who will commit to:
- Train together as a squad twice a week; on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings (may potentially be moved to avoid clashes with Mixed team trainings until NZ Mixed Ultimate Champs in November).
- Compete as a team at NZ Series Events and NZ Ultimate Champs.
We will also have an optional fitness training session once a week. This will focus on sprints, HIIT and strength training (the stronger you are the less likely you are to get injured!).
Competitive Squad members are expected to attend all trainings and tournaments, unless an exceptional circumstance arises. If you are unable to make this level of commitment, but still want to play with Vixenz, email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave us a note in the ‘Last Words’ section of this EOI!
In addition to our Competitive Squad, we will be selecting Training Squad members. These players will be invited to all Vixenz trainings and local scrimmages. If you’d like to level up your game and join in the fun, but you’re unsure whether you’re up for a competitive season this summer, the Training Squad could be the thing for you! So come along to our trials!
Our trials will involve drills and game play to showcase and challenge your skills and fitness. The selectors will be evaluating things such as:
– Throwing and catching skills
– Offensive and defensive game play
– Physical fitness and mental resiliency
– Willingness to be coached, ability to follow instructions, willingness to try new things
– Teamwork with other players
– Attitude while on the field and on the sideline
Vixenz Season Assistance Fund
This fund was set up by the Vixenz Committee to offer support for players in our club who need assistance covering some of the costs associated with playing competitive ultimate. We recognize that peoples’ situations and circumstances can vary, and any/all applications for these funds will be kept confidential. Funds are to be used to cover things like base kit, tournament fees, or travel / accommodation for tournaments. You can apply at any point during the season, and a sub-group of the Vixenz Committee will review all applications and get back to you asap.
If you have any questions about trials or the Vixenz Club, email email@example.com!
