1) Consistent ability to create space for yourself and others
We are looking for fearless teammates who are selfless on offense. We want to see you move and look to create opportunities for yourself and for others. You need to clear effectively and work with everyone on the field; give everyone a chance to contribute!

2) Using lateral space to create offensive opportunities
Our offense relies on lateral spacing to open up vertical, downfield opportunities. Big gains come after swings! Be confident and look to break the mark and swing the disc. We like to swing the disc early and often!

3) Poised and confident with the disc
Understand your throwing abilities and how to use them successfully. Look comfortable with the disc in your hands; be ready to contribute and move the disc quickly.
