GB Youth Women's teams 2017-18

Every year, the GB Junior coaching and management team meet to review progress and plan the next cycle.  This year we spent a significant amount of time discussing the challenges we face supporting the two women’s teams.  The recurring fundamental problem is that not enough players are trying out for the teams.  So we have decided to make some changes that we hope will increase and improve the opportunities for young women wanting to play competitive ultimate.
