the college one. Fall should be a teaching season in which you can
ease new players into the game, while gearing up for a good Spring.
The length of the season is a problem up here in the Northeast, but
indoor practices can do something to help. Plus, as Chris said, you
can use February for intensive conditioning (we here at Drew just hope
they'll finish our gym on time).
And you know-- the spring isn't that much shorter. We had our first
tourney of the spring on March 20 last year. If we had made
regionals, we would have played to May 2. This fall, the first
tourney we could have gone to was September 11; our final tourney was
October 30. We had a week of outdoor practice before March 20; a week
before September 11.
Admittedly, we have an early spring break, but the difference is a
week or two tops. Considering you don't have to teach new people to
play, it doesn't seem to be that much of a difference.
Is it any different in other regions? Is Ultimax an isolated tourney
or does the South play this late normally? Am I rambling? Probably.
