Ultimate Resolutions and Reflections


Welcome, Gobies, to 2011!  We hope that you are welcoming the new decade and everything that it brings – resolutions, aspirations, goals – with anxiousness, anticipation, and hopefulness, in ultimate and every other aspect of your life.


As we approach the threshold of our spring season, we also hope that you begin to fully own the ultimate goals that you’ve developed and set for yourself over the past four months with an enthusiasm that only the start of a new decade can bring.


But the dawn of the new only comes after the dusk of the old, and in order to fully grasp and face goals for tomorrow, you have to understand all that happened yesterday.  The New Year is not merely a time for resolutions, but also of reflection, understanding, and appreciation for where you’ve been.  As a team, we cannot fully accept the expectations that we’ve set for ourselves without the pride that comes with being aware of past expectations that have been set and have been achieved, and sometimes even exceeded.  It is this pride that will encourage us to work toward our goals as a team and as individual players.    



Whether your resolutions for 2011 include a higher GPA, better sleep habits, learning to throw a thumber, improved flutter skills, or being on a winning jello disc team – we hope that you accept this challenge with high aspirations and dedication.  Enjoy your last bits of break and we can’t wait to see everyone back in Cleveland.
