Travel team homework!

This is a great game from a while back between two of the top women’s club teams in ultimate- Boston Brute Squad and the San Francisco Fury. Travel team players should watch the whole game this week- get your family involved if you can!

Some things to look for include how the handlers move and where they stand on the field, how the cutters set up their stack down the field and how they cut from there, and the types of cuts that both positions make. How about how they always have an easy option in the backfield? Pick a player and watch her throughout a point to see how to move.

Special note- #52 on Brute Squad is Caitlin O’Connell, who is local to the Portland area and is a rostered member of the Portland Rising professional ultimate team.
