The AUM offers a well-structured junior competitive program for 12 to 19 years old.
The program is divided into three teams: two development teams (Butane for 12 to 15 years and Kerozen for 16 to 18 years) and then, they can move towards the elite Titanium for 14 to 19 years old.
The development programs (Butane & Kerozen) play 5 against 5 in mixed format. They participated in their first tournament in Shawinigan CQU5 on July 12th.
Their first game was marked by the lack of energy at the beginning that transformed after halftime in a very high intensity match, despite the heat ! Trois- Riviere beat 10-3.
For the second game, experience and teamwork had their effect and they had good chances, made beautiful throws, while giving a hard time to the opposing team ; Quebec in White. The game finished 4-18 for Quebec.
The last game was against Quebec in blue and was definitely the best game of the day for Kerozen, with fluidity, active defense and tons of opportunities in the end zone. The game finished 8-11 for Quebec.
The young team of 12 players of which 6 are under the age of 14 showed great will and good sportsmanship.
They will play two other tournaments during their season; Frog in Quebec and the Maple Championship in Plessisville .
The elite (Titane) plays a 7 against 7 format. Although the elite program offered the possibility of having a "Women" team, this year only an Open team was able to form.
They made their first tournament at the Montreal Jazz June 27-28th. Titanium has managed to retain it’s position and finished with a Spirit of 4.5 / 5. The players learned a lot and demonstrated a great spirit of the game. They also got to know each other as a team and it was a great experience. The team will live other tournaments during the summer including the No border in Ottawa.
Every week, on Mondays and Wednesdays, the program train together at the Douglas Hospital fields. They do a common warm-up session thereafter coaches and assistant coaches work separatespecific aspects of the game and they often end the evening with a common game.
Titanium also has a workout with Specifik ultimate Friday night at Pere Marquette Park to develop their physical capabilities and skills.
We wish a good season to the junior program and good tournament experiences and thank the coaches who get involved to make it all possible
