Today’s game is a fun one! It’s between New York PoNY and the Buzz Bullets of Tokyo, Japan, who have long been that nation’s top ultimate team.

Players- you might know Marquis Brown Lee, who is a player on the PoNY squad, from his very popular tech YouTube channel, where he goes by the handle MKBHD.

Details for the start of our Virtual Preseason!

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.
