At long last, she speaks again. Did you miss me? For the past many months I have been coaching Ultimate for the first time. Of course, on any team, one does one's share of coaching - especially when you are among the more experienced on the team. But this fall/winter/spring I have been coaching college women. And let me tell you, it has been a blast. It's a B team, and they came to me with a collective year of playing experience (meaning, all 14 of them put together have played a year total). And I have had the honor of teaching them the ropes, from the beginning, with my stamp on how I think it ought to be done. They're aggressive, love to play, and seem to be having a lot of fun, which was my main goal for them this season. I'll talk more about this as I go along, but now that our season is wrapping up, I really need to collect my thoughts about what worked and what didn't during the coaching season, and set out a better plan for next year's group.
