AST SPIRIT CHAT

To preface their penultimate game against NYC Bent, the members of the All Star Ultimate Tour team had a conversation about spirit, spiking, and the representation of women’s ultimate. They live-tweeted the conversation on their official Twitter account to share the dialogue with the greater ultimate community. It’s a great read, both for the individual perspectives and the larger implications within the context of the spirit discussion in elite level ultimate.

LEADING WITH POSITIVITY

“I want to be part of a team that rushes the field because they want to celebrate the great things – little or big – that they do on and off the field. I want to be part of the team that will pick me up when I make a mistake and trust that I will do better next time.” – Steph Lim

One of the most recent blog articles from the All-Star Ultimate Tour comes from Stanford Superfly’s Steph “Slim” Lim. Appropriately titled “Leading with Positivity”, Slim reveals that the encouraging vibes she is known for were cultivated after playing with other supportive teams and developing an understanding of being a good teammate. As with all of the posts on the All-Star Ultimate Tour’s blog, this is a MUST READ. http://www.allstarultimatetour.com/blog/2015/8/7/leading-with-positivity
