It’s a bit chilly out today, but at least it’s not raining! 😀
We’re running to Playlist #6 today, then it’s home for 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 video.
Today we have Portland (the other one) Rhino Slam! playing New York PoNY for the 2019 Men’s Quarterfinals National Championships.
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.
Hey Rogue! It is far too windy and stormy outside today, so no running or throwing outdoors. Instead, take it easy today and kickback and watch some videos- at least those of you who still have power at the house! We just lost power here at Rogue HQ due to the wind.
We’ll have a new video tomorrow and if the weather is better, will be back outside with individual practices on Wednesday.
We’ll be setting out on our individual team runs at 3pm- the weather is a little grey but not too bad if you dress with a layer or two! We are running to Playlist 4 today! Remember- only jog by yourself or with a member of your household.
After your run, back home to throw with a parent or sibling or other member of your household- 100 forehands, 100 backhands, 50 scoobers, and 50 hammers. Then it’s a minute of spinning the disc with each hand.
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.
We’ll all be heading out today at 3pm for our individual team runs- again- NO MEETING UP WITH ANYONE ELSE! The only people you are allowed to jog with are people living in your home- so it’s cool to drag along your sibling or mom or dad for the jog, but not with a friend or neighbor.
We are running to Playlist # 2 today- again, no worries if you are not able to run with music. Just head out for a jog that lasts at least 20 minutes.
After you get back from your run, it’s time to throw- 100 forehands, 100 backhands, 50 scoobers, 50 hammers. Then spin the disc on each hand for one minute, then it’s game time!
Today we’re watching a game between Boston’s Brute Squad and San Francisco Fury for the 2019 National Championship Semis. Players should watch at least 30 minutes of the game- bonus points if you see the whole 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.
