Hey guys, start psyching up for Observers Pre-season practice!
As you probably know, there will be 4 practices before tryouts on the 5th of May, and these practices will be highly focused on some of the fundamental skills of Frisbee. The goal of the "pre-season" practices is to get everyone on the same page, and to either teach skills to newer players or brush up on skills for more experienced players.
Each week will have a different theme, with specific topics we'll cover:
4/7 - "Marking" (marking, throwing skills, breaking the mark)
4/14 - "Man D" (positioning, micro-charging)
4/21 - "Movement" (cutting, field spacing, vert stack)
4/28 - "Descision-Making" (hucking and reading the disc, dump & swing)
All of these are important skills, and we will be focusing on their execution during scrimmages in the later portion of practice.
AND FOR A TWIST: Look forward to "The Observers fantasy Ultimate!"
What is this you ask? At pre-season practices, during the scrimmage, I'll be keeping track of every player's points.
How do you get points? Every individual gets a point for either:
1) Getting a D
2) Getting a handblock
2) Throwing the assist
3) Catching the score
I'll update everyone's Fantasy stats on Facebook each week, and at tryouts, the winner of Fantasy ultimate will be announced!
What does the winner get? A FREE OBSERVERS DISC AND JERSEY!
Wait wait, but I can't make pre-season practices, what do I do? Have no fear! After tryouts, we'll be adjusting the practice schedule and bumping times up to 2x/week. Then we'll start another round of Fantasy Ultimate for IN-SEASON!
Get excited, only 2 weeks left till we all get to start practicing together again!!
