If we were to ask a kid to come up a list of their heroes from the pro sports leagues, they might say something similar to the following: NHL – Sydney Crosby; NFL – Peyton Manning; NBA – Lebron James; MLB – Mike Trout. Why are each of these players considered heroes to the kids? The reality is that 99% of kids will never get to meet any of these players and if they do, it will be an autograph and a photo to remember their meeting. Is that really what a hero represents though?

Day 3 was spent in preparation for the upcoming tournament which starts in a day. The teams had two session of Ultimate as usual. The morning was spent doing the drills that was part of the curriculum. In the evening however the coaches had the freedom to devise their own training plan according to what the coaches thought was needed for their team. Many teams choose to run drills that ended in scrimmage with another team. The afternoon was spent painting T-shirts that would serve as jerseys.
