The Captain’s Conundrum

This past weekend saw me returning to Ultimate after a three month break due to an ankle injury that I suffered whilst playing in a tournament. I was making my return in two leagues, an indoor social league and our division 1 outdoor league.

Anyone who has recovered form an injury in any sport can appreciate the anticipation as you slowly rebuild back to a point where you’re game-ready. There’s a sense of excitement, a renewal of goals and a realisation that, although your game has been put on hold for a while, it is time to get back into it and continue moving forward as a player.
