Colorado Springs, Colo. (Nov. 16, 2017) – Tallis Boyd was recently added to the coaching staff for the 2018 Under-24 Mixed National Team, replacing Jake Henderson who had to step aside due to a work conflict.
Boyd is a two-time national champion and a world champion with Minneapolis Drag’n Thrust and is a College Championships-winning coach with Minnesota Grey Duck. An alumni of the University of Minnesota and Grey Duck, Boyd returned to the team in 2014 as a coach and led the program to their first College Championships title in 2016. He also served as a coach for Drag’n Thrust in 2016, helping guide the team to semifinals finishes at both the U.S. Open Championships and National Championships.
As a member of Drag’n Thrust, Boyd was coached by Henderson and later worked with him as an assistant coach. Their existing working relationship will help ensure a smooth transition for the U-24 National Team as the coaching staff evolves and the team prepares for the World Under-24 Ultimate Championships.
Hosted by the World Flying Disc Federation, the World Under-24 Ultimate Championships will be held in Perth, Australia, January 7-13, 2018.
