Hi all, my name is Ben Phillips and I’m a senior, Communications major at SUNY Cortland in upstate New York and welcome to The Break Side.
This is the first blog I have ever done and picking a topic has been an issue. Along with my interest in film and video production, I have a love for Ultimate Frisbee. I’ve been playing for Cortland Team Rocket for the last four years and now captain out 30 man roster. So, this blog will be dedicated to everything Ultimate.
My first couple posts will hopefully give readers who are new a general background of the sport; how it works, rules, logistics, so on and so on. Later on I hope to give tips to people looking to get better, as well as give previews and reviews of teams and tournaments at the college, professional, and club level in the men’s and women’s divisions.
I’ll give in-depth analysis of each region, teams to watch at upcoming tournaments, and how the playoff picture looks come that time of year. Followers can get the latest insight to places to play in their area, as well as how to connect with people in the sport, and get themselves immersed in the culture that is Ultimate. I hope you all enjoy!
