Finally.. The Off Season... A time to Evaluate


It's been a long season. A good season mind you, but a long season for Canadian Ultimate. We had a lot of hot topics this summer:
  • Canadian Nationals
  • The annual UPA excitement (Club and College)
  • One of the best University Nationals ever
  • The summer tournament schedule was packed north and south of the border
  • World Club Bids
  • The unusual crappy summer weather
As we hit the off season, I have no interest in slowing down my posts. It seems like there is a lot to talk about:
  • Discussion of Canadian Nationals and its future
  • Canada's position on the world stage
  • Discussion of current Strategy trends and when the game of ultimate is headed (speaking in terms of x's and o's)
  • Online voting of best players and teams in 2009
  • Off season training
  • Off Season Team Planning and Review processes
  • Junior Worlds in 2010
  • WFDF Under 23 tournament.. and the Top players under 23.
If you've got any ideas about topics this blog should discuss, please feel to post.

It's been discussed as a 2010 possibility, but I don't see it on their website, and it runs the risk of being poorly planned and run if it is held next year. (Little time, running up against club and junior championships that draw from the same pool).
