Cyclones take on ‘The Phoenix has risen State Championships’ in Perth

UltiStates1UltiStates2The Broome Cyclones traveled to Perth last month to compete in the State Championships.  The team did extremely well winning 4 out of the 8 games they played.

Broome was one of 3 regional teams to compete in a field of 13.  They ended up in 9th Place which is an improvement from last year so the team is very happy.

We are also excited that the Cyclones were awarded the Spirit of the game winners. This is a big part of Ultimate, please check it out here, as it is one of the most important rules in Ultimate.

Both Seth Lovell and Bec Lorraine were awarded with  MVP (most valuable player) – Male and Female for the weekend, so the team had plenty to celebrate!

We are looking forward more growth and an even stronger team next year.  We had 5 junior members on the team who held their own in an open tournament.  It is exciting to look forward to where we can be in a years time.

Broome Ultimate would like to thank the Department of Sport and Recreation and the Lionesses of Broome who supported the Junior members of the team to make the trip to Perth.  We also received a lot of community support in the lead up through fundraising and this was very helpful to the team.

There are more photos from the tournament on our Facebook page ‘Broome Ultimate’ please have a look there.


Fantastic support for Broome Ultimate development

Broome Ultimate has been very lucky this year to receive grants and assistance from the Department of Sport and Reaction and Garduwa to help with development of the sport in the Kimberley, especially with junior Ultimate players.
Thanks to DSR and Garnduwa, the WA Ultimate State Development Officer, Anna Haynes, will be in Broome next week.  It’s fantastic that Anna will be able to spend time in the Kimberley.  Anna has been involved in Ultimate in Australia for more years than we’d like to say, and has masses of experience with club development and coaching both elite and beginning players.

We are looking forward to more growth across the Kimberley in the years to come.  We’re very lucky to have this opportunity and very grateful to everyone who has helped make it happen.

Broome Ultimate player represents WA… and beyond!

Massive congratulations to Broome Ultimate player Seth Lovell who recently travelled interstate to represent WA in the Youth Ultimate Championships.

It was Seth’s second year in the WA representative team, and the team made it to fifth place, but not without Seth’s talents being recognised with an invitation to the Green and Gold youth team that will be representing Australia and taking on New Zealand’s finest.

Great stuff Seth, Broome Ultimate is representing internationally!
