To be appointed
World Games 2017 is the first opportunity to bring the number of staff
required, rather than the four staff members previously dictated by the event
hosts. As such, the 2017 Crocs staff is larger than previous Crocs campaigns as
we attempt to create the best functioning staff of an Australian Ultimate team
Head Coach and Physio (European based) will be fully funded by the team.
Assistant Coaches (x2), Mental Strength Coach and Manager will each be half
funded by the team with the remaining cost to be self-funded by the staff
This will bring the total staff costs to 4 full staff members (same as previous
Being selected to the Crocs 2017 team will not be enough reward for any
player selected to the team.
All players entering contention for a place on the Crocs roster will enter the
process with a Growth Mindset. To become the greatest Mixed Ultimate team
in the world will require everyone involved in the team to improve.

Preparation for The World Games
Four Training Camps will be held in May and June 2017. The location of these
camps is yet to be determined, and will be influenced by the final make-up of
the team. The Crocs will aim to play as many meaningful games as possible in
their short preparation time. Games against established mixed clubs and
representative teams will be prioritised over playing punching bags teams,
and each Training Camp will feature game play against opposition.
The AFDA, along with the head coach, is investigating opportunities to play against other World Games teams in the leadup to Poland. Options being investigated include trips to North America or Japan and/or having the Japanese visit Australia. It is intended that any such tour would aim to recoup expenses through ticket sales and sponsorship to minimise the cost to the athletes. It will only go ahead if the AFDA is confident that costs to the athletes can be minimised. The purpose of these games is to play against the highest quality opposition in a simulated World Games environment the ideal preparation for the World Games 2017. Professionals in Mental Strength Training, Physiotherapy and Physical training
programs will be engaged to work with the Crocs team.
The World Games will take place in Poland 20-30 July, 2017.
Conservative initial budget estimate:
$2,500 for selection camp, 4 training camps, uniforms, staff, and world games
$2,000 for flights to Poland.
$1,000 for international Test Matches
