Maverick and Goose Ultimate
The Academy is looking forward to another season with lots of new talent. This season we are aiming to develop as a cohesive unit and build basic fundamentals worked on in the past and continue working on skills that will allow players to strengthen their game.
We plan adjusting to one practice a week (Wednesday) where we hope to have a higher level of turnout to push one another even more. Using practices, pick up ultimate nights, and fitness and skill drills (outside of practice time), our aim is to utilize field time to develop a strong core of players.
We are aiming to put together two Open teams out of the system for this year. Teams will be working towards building unity, individual fundamentals. We will be looking to attend a tournament a month, with the goal of sending a squad to CUC 2016 in Edmonton, in August, and also to the USAU fall series in September. The goal for this year is to build into next year, with the hopes of having a stronger showing at CUC in 2017. In order to achieve this, we will be capping the number of roster spots available on each team, but still attempting to provide other development opportunities to those not selected for a team.
We are expecting players who are selected for both of the touring teams to uphold a level of commitment that will help support the team’s goals. Players are expected to be at practice on Wednesday evenings, if this is something that you cannot commit to please contact either of the captains to discuss your situation. As a team that has goals to develop players individually and as a unit, it is very important that we work together to support and push one another in practices.
