Triple Crown Roster Announced

This year, to meet our various commitments, we made the unprecedented move of compressing our Triple Crown season into the space of two weeks.  Every year poses its own challenges, and 2016, with multiple world championship events over June and July made most of the summer a blackout period for us.  But now the fall is here, and even as the days grow shorter, the Year of the Monkey now begins.

Coach:

Marc Seraglia

Furious Commits Year-Round to Professional Ultimate

New “Monkeys” Franchise Will Compete in League & Tournament Play

Having received official blessings from Ultimate Canada, USA Ultimate, and the AUDL, Vancouver ultimate will transition to a consolidated competition model beginning in 2016 in which one professional club competes in all arenas under a single identity. Before the end of the year, Vancouver’s storied Furious George Ultimate Club will cease to exist in an official capacity. Completing the merger with the AUDL “Riptide” franchise, the new consolidated club will be marketed publicly under the new banner of the “Water Monkeys” at home and abroad.

Northwest Regionals Retrospective

One thing you learn in competition is that people construct narratives. Driven by some visceral need or superstition for meaning and context, players and spectators alike put stories to outcomes. We try to explain the complex (or complicate the simple), often through a mish-mash of fact and self-projection, but it’s a human habit, and a somewhat necessary one for a team. These stories provide a sense of identity, so as a captain, one of the most important of your duties is to share your narrative — the story as you see it.

Step 1

Furious George qualified for the Canadian Ultimate Championships today, taking the first bid out of B.C., and the top seed out of the West.  We earned the victory in decisive 15-7,15-3,15-3 wins, although not always with the kind of efficient aplomb we are trying to drill into habit.  We practiced various iterations of man-to-man and zone defenses that we are cultivating for use in August, and we continue to try to refine our offense into something less like an enthusiastic chaos.  The theory is that when the machine is finished, it won’t matter which part we play — it will trundle down the field as designed, as we each do our jobs.    That will come; for now though, we have accomplished step one.
