First Practice

Our first official practice was a HUGE success!! Thank you so much to everyone who came out today, it was so awesome to see you there. I seriously haven't been this excited since I discovered Greenbush Bakery back in my childhood (freshmen: go to Greenbush, experience a new world).

For those of you who couldn't make it out today, we went over basic concepts of the game such as throwing (backhand and forehand), defensive marks, a basic stack, and some simple rules of the game. We then split into teams and scrimmaged for a while, where it was apparent that you girls are REALLY fast learners and all have a ton of potential!

Our first tournament is the last weekend in september, the 29th and 30th in Whitewater, WI, called Hucktoberfest. This will be an introductory tournament where EVERYONE is welcome. It's not too competitive and a lot of fun without being too far away (about 45 minutes from Madison). Last year Bella Donna won, so let's do it again!

So, invite your friends, bring your roommates, tell them how much fun Ultimate is. We love to have new people out all the time, no matter the skill level.

And finally: let's have fun this weekend. Saturday night come out to 1532 Adams St. and party with us, even if you couldn't make it to practice. Can't wait to see you all there!

Thanks again girls, and if not Saturday, see you Monday at 4:30 at UBay fields!
