At Viking Ultimate, we focus on the three core aspects of the team mechanics and ethos:
1. The player
The individual with her/his talents, experience and attributes is the building blocks of Viking Ultimate. Player development and growth is a priority (guide players to attain the level they wish to play at).
Creating an environment where every player feels like they belong, where they can play hard, train and grow and have lots of crazy fun is what this is all about. Attracting like minded players who wish to experience the fun, sense of community and joy that goes with being on a competitive team that works towards the same goal/s is why we started this team.
Playing for each other is a major focus point. A team built on solid fundamentals can utilise offensive and defensive structures as a canvas to express their unique creativity and talent. Can use structure as a launching pad.
Offering high level season training programs, that cover most learning methods, are an opportunity to improve no matter your level of experience. Being challenging and lots of fun is the coaching goal.
Positive results will come from playing for each other, and putting in the work during the season. Together. The focus is on the process. The measure of success is our ability to best perform to our collective team ability.
The Viking leadership prefers to walk the walk. Make our play on the field do the talking. Lead by example. Every warm up and warm down. Every training session. Every match. We see leadership as an opportunity to serve our team mates. We sacrifice our time and energy for you. We play and compete for each other.
We win together. We use losing as a tool to learn and improve together.
Viking Ultimate was founded in 2017 by three members of the Cape Town Ultimate Community, each of whom had noticed a gap for a team based on gender equality.
Battle-axes in hand and shields in tow, these three rode ashore to disrupt the Ultimate landscape by bringing their own distinct flavour and style to both how the game is played and how the team trains together.
Their many years of collective experience, combined with a penchant for good, clean Ultimate, Corne, Amy and Petra lead a tribe focused on competitive, yet fun, Ultimate.
