Rogue Hippo - Mixed Ultimate
We recognize that there are a lot of options to play competitive Ultimate in Edmonton! We would like to take a moment to let you know what Rogue Hippo is about:
As we enter our 7th season as a team, Rogue Hippo has two key focuses: gender equity, and team development.
Rogue Hippo believes that everyone, regardless of gender, should feel as though they can make an impact on the field. We expect that our players recognize the valuable role of each of their teammates and strive to make each one of our players feel that they are contributing to the team in a meaningful way. As such, Rogue Hippo will be moving towards a 50/50 gender ratio with a smaller roster of 9 to 11 men and 9 to 11 women for the 2018 season. This is also designed to bring us in line with last year’s rule change to allow for a team to decide the gender ratio when defending a predetermined endzone.
We believe that a team that functions and competes as a unit produces the best results. With a smaller roster we will be looking to distribute play time more evenly and ensure everyone sees the field on a regular basis. More than ever our season will focus on developing all of our players and building on their individual strengths in order to succeed as a team.
We believe that mixed Ultimate is unique, challenging and appealing in its own right. We are looking for passionate and driven players who are excited about mixed Ultimate and the opportunities it provides. If you are interested in playing in a fun and competitive environment and making some great friends along the way, then Rogue Hippo could be the team for you!
