UCPC: 3 days away/Ultivillage partnership, etc

UCPC is just three days away and there is a lot of stuff going on.

First, if you didn't register in advance, you can do walk-in registration on Saturday morning. Check out the website for all the latest information.

One exciting thing is the release of the UCPC07 content on Ultivillage. We want players and coaches who do not have the opportunity to attend the conference to have access to content, so we think this is a great offering. You can also go and vote for the 08 content you would like to see released. Very cool. As a side note, we have decided to use any proceeds that the UCPC receives from the sale of its content to provide scholarships to Youth players that want to attend future conferences. Our presenters have graciously released their content for this purpose.

Dr. Goldberg is again our keynote speaker and, as has been said many times, is really worth the price of admission himself. I recommend subscribing to his newsletter on his website.

As was the case in 07, there are really too many good presentations to see and it is hard to choose. I do think that the chance to talk with the UPA about their Strategic Plan is a unique opportunity. I think Wiggins' presentation should be very interesting. There is plenty more to check out though. Go to the UCPC Presentations page to check it out.

Lastly, there is the Ultimate Expo. With VC, Breakmark, BUDA,the UPA, plus all the colleges, high schools, and club teams in a trade show setting, it should be a lot of fun and chance to get merch plus talk to Ultimate teams about what they are up to.

Should be fun. Hope to see you there.
