Review: The Foundation & F.U.T.U.R.E.

If you haven’t heard of Tim Morrill, you should take a few minutes and familiarize yourself with who he is and what he does. He’s an innovator and has been influencing and changing the way players train for ultimate.

I have been lucky enough to have a look at both of his products  – The Foundation and Future 1.0 and what follows is my review of both products.

The Foundation

Tim is a student of his craft. He doesn’t just teach it but he also learns it. The Foundation is based on the 4 athletic qualities of: Strength, Power, Speed and Agility. He’s taken all of his learning and has outlined how each quality is defined, measured, conventionally trained and how each quality can be trained without implements.

UCPC 2013: Future of Ultimate Panel Discussion

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.
