2006 World Juniors Ultimate Championships - Daily Log - August 9th

Posted: August 9, 2006 02:33 AM

Today the top under 20 players in the United States arrived at Northfield Mount Hermon in Gill, MA to begin their quest for two world titles.  Players from around the country flew in to Boston's Logan Airport and met and greeted each other as they waited for the bus.  The bus, which arrived 30 minutes late, transported the players to the beautiful Northfield Mount Hermon campus where at 8pm regional players and players that arrived earlier met them.  The players and coaches enjoyed box lunches (the cafeteria was closed) and then separated into their respective teams.  Many of the players on both teams had never met before.

The players spent the evening in team meetings and playing outside and in the plush Northfield Mount Hermon dorms.  There is a lot of work to be done over the next 10 days to mold 18 boys and 21 girls from highly skilled and athletic individuals into championship teams.  But the work will be exciting and fun and the players and coaches are up to the task.
