Rainy day- back at it!

I think we can skip running for today, given how chilly and rainy it is outside. If you can get out to throw- get in your 100 backhands, 100 forehands, 50 hammers, and 50 scoobers. Then kick back and soak up these highlight videos.

Roll Falmouth!

Never give up; never let up

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.

A beautiful day for a virtual practice!

What a day Falmouth Rogue!

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.

Roll Falmouth!

With Falmouth Rogue now graduating high school seniors up into the world of college ultimate, this is a perfect time to share highlights from the recent 2019 College Championships. The state of the college game is strong and getting stronger. I can’t wait to see our players start to show up in highlight reels like this! It won’t be long.

‘Sky is Red’ documentary- the “untold story of the push for gender, race, and class equity in the growing world of ultimate”

https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/718913161/the-sky-is-red-documentary-film#

This is a very important project worthy of our support.

The Sky Is Red will tell the stories of underrepresented and marginalized individuals pushing for gender, race, and class equity in the growing world of ultimate frisbee from 1968 to the present. The film will explore the parallels and connections between history and present-day events. The unsung efforts and tricky conversations in the small community of ultimate become a microcosm for the fight to upend institutional power balances in the world.”
