The World Flying Disc Federation’s (WFDF) World Junior Ultimate Championships is one of the international federation’s five world championship tournaments.
Every two years, the best youth ultimate players, those under 20 years of age, from around the world square off in two competition divisions: boys and girls.
The next WJUC will be held August 19-25 outside Toronto in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada.
The first WJUC was held in 1983 as a juniors division at the World Ultimate and Guts Championships. It became a separate event in 2002.
The United States first competed at WJUC in 1988.
In the months leading up to the event, all age-eligible ultimate players may apply to be considered for the U-20 National Teams.
The teams’ coaches and USA Ultimate staff select up players to attend one of two tryout camps. Following tryouts, final rosters for the boys and girls teams that will represent the United States are determined by the coaches and USA Ultimate staff.
