Frisbee career highlights in 140 characters or less?

My highlights are almost all about seeing people improve/implement advice. GB U23 Women’s performance against the North Americans was a particular highlight. The difference between where Surrey came at Nats when I started, and ended my time there was awesome. Watching TSU 2nds come back from 9-5 down to win 10-9 the other week was also amazing.

Your top 5 tournament essentials?

A disc. My Nalgene. Some food to share with the team. Hockey ball.¬†Savlon for golfer’s crack.

Favourite throw?

IO flick break

You can only do one drill for the rest of the season, what would it be?

3 man breakforce/mad marker. It has so many elements that can be altered to simulate difficult situations for a thrower.

One piece of advice for a new player who wants to get picked for a team that you coach?

Work hard and listen.
