NoBS 2015

Postby Big Country » Tue Mar 24, 2015 11:24 am

NoBS Ultimate is back in 2015!
Coming off a our second season NoBS ultimate found it’s unique philosophy was a successful idea. We are looking to make a few tweaks and come back even stronger in 2015.
NoBS is a Toronto based mixed team with a unique make up. We believe that ultimate can be played with no BS. Just fun, experienced players who will go out on the field and just know what to do. We expect to play mostly local tournaments, and Regionals and Nationals. We are looking to field a roster of players who fit our ideals and who are looking for a team where they can’t commit to a rigorous practice schedule but are ready to play some serious ultimate without the BS.
We showed we are a strong team in 2014. Unfortunately our extremely poor showing at Regionals on Saturday did us in. It sent us on a very tough road on Sunday. In the end we knocked out the top two teams (TRIBE and SPF) who would have been Nationals favourites before ultimately losing on Universe in the game to go to Max Power (Nationals Finalists). In 2013 we also had a great year making the finals of 4 tournaments during the regular season and competing with the best. At Nationals we had a skeleton crew but showed great heart against teams that were literally twice our roster size and finished a respectable 10th.
The team philosophy is unique and something that makes ultimate more enjoyable while putting out a great team on the field. We are looking to add some more veteran savvy with a mix of youth and speed. We believe we can put in a very strong team in 2015 and improve our Nationals result from 2013 greatly.
A little more about NoBS in 2015:
1. Again in 2015, we are looking to use Thursday night competitive league as a practice where we can work on plays in a game setting. We will work on different strategies as well as putting players in a position to improve skills as needed.
2. We will also be looking to host a few more practices during the year as required.
3. We will be hosting tryouts again this year. First tryout is April 27th at 7-9pm at Downsview.
4. We are tentatively looking at the following Touring schedule for 2014:
Soggy Bottom Bowl (Guelph) – May 2nd/3rd (Tryout tournament)
Toronto Ultimate Tournament (Toronto) – May 9th/10th
May Day (Waterloo) – May 23/24
TUC Summer Experience (Toronto) – June 6th/7th
Ontario Regionals (Barrie) – July 11/12
No Borders (Ottawa) – July 26th/27th
Nationals (Winnipeg) – Aug 13-16

I had heard tell that this "Thursday League" might become a "Wednesday League". Is there any fact to these rumors, B.C.?
