Nike Ultimate Camps are helping this sport expand in the most important way - from the youth upwards.
San Rafael, CA (PRWEB) May 02, 2016
The 2016 World Ultimate & Guts Championship (WUGC) Mixed roster was announced in February and Chris Mazur, coach at the Nike Ultimate Camp at Manhattan College, made the cut. The WUGC is being held in London, England this year from June 18-25. At the last WUGC in 2012 the U.S. National Teams won the gold in the men’s division, another gold in the women’s masters division, and a silver in the women’s division, so Mazur hopes to lead the USA Mixed team to a metal this year.
“Playing on the world stage and representing the United States is a dream come true,” said Mazur. “This summer will be my first time competing at a WUGC world championship and I look forward to it with great excitement.”
Mazur will coach at the Nike Ultimate Frisbee™ Camp in New York this summer. Chris started playing ultimate in 2004 at the University of Miami and has since played for Miami Cartel, Colt .45 (CT), District 5 (finishing 2nd and 3rd at nationals), and PoNY. He’s also played for three different semi-professional teams; Constitution (AUDL), Rumble (MLU - eastern conference MVP in 2013), and Empire (AUDL).
Chris’s ultimate Frisbee™ coaching experience began in 2010 when he became head varsity coach of the Choate Rosemary Hall high school team, who went 15-3 that season. In addition, Mazur coached the Columbia University men's team in 2014-2015 and many youth clinics/camps over the past 5 years.
When asked why he wanted to coach at the Nike Ultimate Camp, Chris replied, “Nike Ultimate Camps are helping this sport expand in the most important way - from the youth upwards. I started playing in college but wish I had found the sport in high school or even middle school. From fundamentals to "Spirit of the Game", working with young players as they discover this incredible sport is the most rewarding feeling.”
The Nike Ultimate Camp at Manhattan College will run from July 24-28. This camp is open to boys and girls, ages 11-18, of all ability levels and offers overnight and day camp options.
