For those that prefer not to subscribe to any of the many, many frisbee yahoogroups we have for our sport, here's a copy of an email that went out this morning about some upcoming off-season BPL events:
Men of the Brisbane Premier League and beyond,
The BPL is about to become harder, faster and better. How? Read on.
Starting this Thursday night July 2nd, and then on July 16th and 30th, three off-season BPL player development sessions will be held at our usual Annerley Junior FC location and everyone is invited, including guys who aren't yet playing BPL but would like to.
Now, some might find it surprising that the Sensei of the notoriously non-training Dojo is here promoting training nights, but I can't wait to get stuck into these sessions and I'm pretty sure you will feel the same. Why? Because the organising group of Al Don, John McNaughton, Stu Austin and myself have put together a series of themed training events with a list of local legends (no, really) running the show. Here's what we've got lined up:
July 2 - Playing better Man on Man Ultimate
Offence coach: Piers Truter
Defence coach: Al Don
What's involved? Better cuts, better options, better dumps, better marking, better teamwork, more mongrel
July 16 - Throwing better and Marking better
Coach: John McNaughton
What's involved? Better breaks, better hucks, better swings, better force marking, better dump marking
July 30 - Playing better Zone Ultimate
Offence coach: Chris Burwell
Defence coach: Mike Neild
What's involved? Better disc movement, better cup breakers, better above & around options, better long hucks (oh yeah), better cup setting, better zone teamwork, better deep D, better setups & strategies
Did I use the word "better" enough? Well, that's because the whole idea of these sessions is making the standard of BPL competition BETTER by offering every player the opportunity (thanks to some help with the funds from QUDA) to improve their skillset and knowledge base. And by every player I mean YOU! This is improvement-focussed training that we should ALL be taking advantage of.
So - be there starting 7pm this Thursday night at the AJFC fields for some kick*ss training that I personally guarantee will improve your game more than Loreal skin cream will reduce visible wrinkles.
Looking forward to seeing everybody there.
