The DC Current is very pleased to introduce the second member of our coaching staff, Will Smolinski.
Smolinski has been a youth coach (Yorktown/HB Open Varsity, Yorktown Open Varsity, DC-area Open YCC) in the greater D.C. area for nearly a decade. Over that time, he led the YHB team to 5 VA State Championships while also putting in work for the Capital Ultimate Camp and the Youth Ultimate League of Arlington. In his previous incarnation as a player, the years spent with Truman State University, Drew University and the NJ club team Upheaval represent another link from the DC Current to Mid-Atlantic college and club Ultimate.
“2013 is going to be a transformative year for the sport of Ultimate,” Smolinski says, “and I am very excited to be a part of it.” As the level of youth play increased dramatically over recent years, Smolinski has been directly involved in the evolution of the next generation of players. Now, with the DC Current, he will have the opportunity to shape the next generation of play.
As more talented and experienced players move into professional play, Smolinski is well-suited to foster a flexible environment in which both the DC Current and MLU can evolve.
Now, with their coaching staff and GM in place, the DC Current are set to start the first round of tryouts this Saturday, January 26 from 5am to 7am at the Soccer Dome at 7330 Montevideo Road, Jessup, MD 20794.
