Training for the 2017 season has now ended but we regularly organise pickup games over the summer. Please join our Facebook group to hear about those. Everybody is welcome!

Our Training Goals

Good Habits

Please try your best to play how our coaches suggest. Nobody will mind if you mess up doing the right thing! That goes for gameplay as well as drills. We want to reinforce good technique at training so that when it comes to Tour we’re confident in each others’ decision making and execution. If something doesn’t quite work for you, let a captain know, but it may still be what’s best for the team.

Positivity

Training sessions are more productive when we all support and push each other. There is a lot of experience in Steal and players are encouraged to share it! Feedback should emphasise what should, not shouldn’t, be done. The word that sticks when you hear “don’t drop” is drop. Make the focus positive: “Get your body behind that catch!” Sideline encouragement is hugely important.

Enjoyment

We’re a competitive club but nobody is getting paid to play Ultimate. Some sessions might be wet, cold and physically tough but we hope they’ll all be fun! If you don’t understand something, please ask a coach or experienced player. If there is something that you don’t agree with, let us know privately. Feedback is always welcome and important to keep everyone enjoying Steal.
