A Winning Mentality

What is the ultimate goal for a team? To win games? To play well together? To have fun?

When I’ve ran clinics, I always ask people why they play ultimate. The answers vary but one answer that’s common among everyone is “to have fun”. What I tell players who are new to the game or who have been playing for a bit but are still playing in a lower league is that being a good player is fun. Being able to pull full field is fun. Being able to sky someone for a point is fun. Catching the disc is fun. Laying out for a D is fun. Winning is fun.
