Discovering a new game, a possible new passion, does not necessarily mean that you have what it takes to take it further. And it is not always your fault. Sometimes, the object of your passion can only take you so far. Past a point, you need to put time and effort into it.
But say that you have discovered ultimate as a sport you might actually be interested in. Where do you start? Do you begin by cramming on various techniques without even giving it a real try or do you simply get out there and start playing the game? And what do you do once you get past that first phase and then become stuck? You know what it is about and how to play it, yet you do not play regularly and you are not getting any better. To some people, this stage is even worse than never having tried at all. It is the phase in which you feel that things cannot move any further.
First of all, it is important to understand that taking the first step is always difficult and understandable. However, nobody else tells you that many of the following steps are just as difficult. But if you really want to get things moving and you need a helping hand, take a look at the information we have prepared for you. You will find something of interest regardless of whether you are just getting started or you have reached a point where you should get more out of this sport.
