It’s always interesting whenever some of the most well known players in our sport are brought together to talk about the future of ultimate.
It is difficult to make predictions, especially about the future
So too is this statement true about ultimate. We’re still in our infancy in many ways but in other ways, we’ve come very far. Over the past few years, the popularity of ultimate has exploded online thanks to Youtube, Twitter, Reddit, Facebook and Sportscentre. Over that same period, there have been a National touring team, 2 professional leagues and hours and hours of full game footage posted online. It’s been an exciting time to be an ultimate player and so I found the panel discussion at the 2013 Ultimate Coaches and Players Conference (UCPC) quite interesting.
Check out the video and let me know what you think about some of the discussions and some of the differing opinions from some of the panel members.
