Stage 6: Learn to Win Ages: Males 20-23 / Females 19–21


Objectives: To integrate higher levels of physical conditioning with execution of advanced Ultimate-specific technical and tactical preparation under competitive conditions. Consolidating mental, cognitive and emotional development.


Athletes in the Learn to Win stage have a strong understanding of the physical, psychological, technical and tactical demands of Ultimate and have experienced play in a competitive environment. During this stage, the athlete physically reaches maturity and continues to develop an understanding of Ultimate and the position- specific requirements and sport-specific fitness required to play. The athlete must be committed as the focus is on the refinement of skills through training and pressure situations.


Athletes should have a better understanding of time-management and have a solid support group in place to continue through this stage. They are better able to manage outside stress and ensure that they have constructive training sessions. During this stage athletes are exposed to increased pressure as individuals (selection to National team) and as teammates (winning National championships). They may also face competing interests as they play on their university/college team and club team. The athletes are older and more mature, making them likely candidates to take on a leadership role on some or all of the teams that they are playing on.


Athletes in this stage should be experienced at achieving balance with other important roles such as school, university, part-time jobs, family, etc. They can self-regulate their schedule to ensure sufficient recovery activities are completed to effectively meet the heavy demands of training and competition.
