Ramping Up for Regionals....

MIT is busy learning some new tricks for regionals, but mostly, we are working on the same old fundamentals since really, the team that plays their game the best normally wins.

We are focusing on continuation cuts, attacking deep more, handler motion, etc.

The kids have an alumni scrimmage Saturday, practice tuesday, scrimmage vs. sons of liberty wednesday, and the final practice on thursday to go over any loose ends.

On Thursday after practice, I arranged the team to do a workshop with my friend and former Metal teammate, Max Woolf, who is a motivational speaker / life coach. I think this will be really good for the kids to get in the right mindset for regionals.

I think a lot of ultimate, and a lot of college ultimate is basically about who wants to win more. There are a lot of mental headcases in this sport, and the baggage they carry onto the field with them amazes me. I don't want that to be something that holds us back.

i hope you realize that an alumni game is a terrible ramp up for regionals, unless your goals are:
1. get the guys loosened up and having fun on the field
2. teach them how to play against lazy-ass poaching D
3. improve their rocham skills

i, for one, will be throwing lefty, upside down or some other swill all game long.
