Women's Clinics

June 3 and 10

For the next two Tuesdays we'll be holding a women's clinic from 6-7pm. We'd love to see you out there, XX'ers! Whether you're an experienced player, or brand-new to sports and don't have the slightest idea of what a flick or a mark is, come check it out. Invite your friends, neighbors and co-workers! The Brattleboro disc scene has always had good female representation on the field, and we'd love to keep building those numbers.

Folks interested in checking out the clinic will be registering with Brattleboro Ultimate and pay the same field fee as regular players. So if you're inviting new players, make sure they have a check for $25 (or $50, if they're sticking with it!) when they come, and tell them about pre-registering online!

We owe thanks to USA Ultimate for helping to sponsor the clinics. Participants will need to fill out an evaluation form at the clinic so that USA Ultimate can get more data on how to promote the sport. A half a dozen discs, a few rule books and other goodies will be given to participants.

A regular Tuesday game will follow the clinic at 7pm -- i.e. mixed gender game with a focus on learning and skill building.

The weekly Tuesday and Thursday games are going strong.  7's with subs for most of the evening, with a great mix of players: young and (ahem) older, new and experienced, and a strong women's turnout.  Tonight's game winner was scored by a player new to the sport, and it wasn't her only point of the night.  What a start!  Some of us headed to the Top of the Hill Grill afterwards to celebrate her.

What a great first evening of disc for 2014!  7's with multiple subs for both teams.

Registration was smooth, mostly because almost everyone had already registered online.  You guys & gals rock!

After introductions (what was with all the burning?), drills helped ease our stiff winter joints back into run, cut, and throw mode again.  Then a good game of 7's, plenty of subs, and a win-by-1 in the ending game to 5 as the last light disappeared. 

I can't wait to do it again on Thursday.
