This video is older, so the resolution is a bit dimmer than more-modern clips, but it’s still worth the watch. During the 2008 Women’s Club Finals, San Francisco Fury was playing Seattle Riot and was losing 10-1, before going on a 14 point scoring run that had them winning the game 15-12.
I have been on both sides of big come-back games, but never anything like this.
THIS is why you NEVER give up if you are losing.
And THIS is why you NEVER let up if you are winning. The game is not over until the last point is scored.
We have another great day for a virtual team practice! We’ll all be heading out today at 3pm on our individual team runs and listening to Playlist #3!
After your run, it’s back home for throwing- 100 backhands, 100 forehands, 50 scoobers, and 50 hammers. Then a minute of spinning the disc on each hand followed by at least 30 minutes of watching game footage.
Today we are tuning into the 2019 Mixed National Championship game between San Francisco Mischief and Philadelphia AMP.
Remember- bonus points for watching the entire game!
Falmouth ultimate players- please watch this video for details on the start of our virtual preseason tomorrow!
We will be running tomorrow to Playlist #1. If you don’t have access to Spotify on your phone or device- no worries! You just want to run for twenty minutes starting at 3pm. Remember- no running with other players or neighbors. We all need to maintain social distancing, so runs should be solo or with a member of your family. IMPORTANT- check with your parents as to where it is safe to run around your house. Stay out of the road!
After the run, find a partner to throw with and throw 100 backhands, 100 forehands, 50 scoobers, and 50 hammers. Make sure you are setting proper pivots on each throw. When you are done throwing, practice spinning the disc with your left hand for a minute, then your right for a minute
Friday’s practice video is below. Please make sure you watch at least 30 minutes of game time. Bonus points for watching the whole game. Try this while watching- pick a player during the game and watch how they move.
This is a fantastic game to watch! In this one, the Minneapolis Sub Zero takes on the Tokyo Buzz Bullets, the storied top Japanese ultimate team, in pool play during the 2019 U.S. Open. Give it a watch!
Jimmy Mickle is one of my favorite ultimate players- he’s fast, tall, and has great throws and catches. He dominates in the air and has an astute sense of the field and where things need to go and when. Here are a bunch of videos to get started- Google his name to learn more and watch more videos.
Here is Jimmy’s Callahan nomination video for 2013, when he was a player with Colorado University’s Mamabird. The Callahan Award is given each year to the top player in women’s and men’s ultimate.
A highlight video from his time as a pro player in the American Ultimate Disc League:
