Hey y'all,


We partnered with Mario O'Brien (of RiseUp fame) and his latest project Ultacademy for a new segment on our blog! As we're the experts in ultimate gear and culture, he's the expert on coaching gameplay and onfield strategies.


From time to time, we'll share more videos from Mario right here on the Captain Resources Blog. To get more Ultacademy goods, you can sign up for the program here.


For now, let's take a look at how you can help all your players grow when they're all at different places on the ultimate learning curve.




To recap:

  1. Play lots of small scrimmages at practice to get more reps for everyone.
  2. Make sure returners are on board with the early season plan of leveling up rookies.
  3. Split up groups to work on different skills, and let players self-select.

Over to you!
