Joey Shapiro has been playing ultimate for 14 years, first learning to play at Princeton University. After playing on Clockwork Orange from 2000-2003, he played for the Chicago open teams Stonecutters and the Aldermen, Weapons of Mass Destruction (mixed) and New Noise (open) out of Boston, and Illinois’s top mixed team ELevate in 2013. He also played on Harvard University’s Redline in 2005-2006 when they won their first Regional tournament and competed at College Nationals in Columbus, Ohio. He has coached at many levels: middle school with the Bernard Zell Anshe Emet Eagles; high school with Evanston Township’s Wildkits; juniors with the inaugural Israeli junior worlds team in 2006; college with Harvard’s BRedline squad and University of Illinois’s jUICebox women’s team. He loves to play goaltimate all year round, especially in the deep snows of Chicago winter. When he is not chasing plastic, Joey is a writing teacher for middle schoolers. He lives in Chicago with his wife and son (whose offhand scoober gets better every day).
