Poll Thursday - World class Ultimate

Hey Folks,

Last weeks poll started us off on an exploration of off-season training. Today we'll review the results, and go back Ultimate polls with respect to the World Clubs coming up.

So last week, I wanted to know how long people felt they should wait until getting into the new season of off-season training. Twenty-seven people replied to the poll and the results were:

  1. 48% of people (13 people) said that 1 or 2 weeks was all before getting into the swing of the things.
  2. 30% of people (8 votes) felt that January was a good time to get back into the swing of things.
  3. 22% of people (6 votes) started training right away.
  4. 0% of people who responded don't train in the off-season.
Well, it's good to see that everyone feels that training is relevant. The majority feels that training should be continued almost right after the season ends. It makes sense to lighten up and recover your body, but why waste your fitness level.

This weeks poll is about Worlds. My roommate, Peyton Leung, is off to Australia to compete along with a number of people other people from Toronto. Montreal, Vancouver, and Edmonton are also sending teams from Canada in what should be an experience of a lifetime. I would be there too, if things had of worked out better, but alas, I will watch another major tournament virtually.

The questions are:
  1. How many chances do you have going to a world Ultimate event?
  2. Is it worth going to Worlds?
