From player feedback, our goals this year are:
Facilitating new player learning – We will only be playing one game to 15 the first week to allow for players to get to know their team before hand, and allow for teaching moments. We will be sending out a welcome/learners kit to anybody who indicates they have never played before with some educational material going over terms, and some basic gameplay.
Player involvement – Always try to keep your entire team involved. It’s easy to get into the habit of throwing to the same people you are used to, or the experienced players on the team. Even though this is a league, we ask that you tone down your competitive nature at times and get everyone involved. Making the “right” throw is not always the best for this. Guys, not everyone does this, but make sure to throw to the women on your team.
Player safety – We hope this goes without saying, but we expect everyone to play in a safe manner. Dangerous plays should be called out and discussed (quickly) to ensure the parties involved are aware and can prevent it from happening again. Keep in mind that you may think you are in control of your body, but you don’t know what another player is going to do. When in doubt, error on the side of caution.

Captains

We are looking for 2 captains per team (preference is one Male and one Female matching player) that are available to participate in a draft format (April 3rd, or April 5th).
Expectations:

  • Communicate with your teams weekly. Emails for all individuals will be sent out after the draft.
  • Facilitate learning for new players. The captains should be comfortable teaching basic concepts in a calm manner to newer players.
  • Be aware of, call out, and discuss dangerous play, and player involvement.
