Register for our February 9th “Blind Date” Mixer Tournament

January 27th, 2020

The “Blind Date” Mixer Tournament is back for it’s 4th run, being held this year on February 9th, conveniently held the weekend before Valentine’s Day — wink wink!

This tournament has all the fun of a traditional mixer, but with a twist – you’ll meet your tournament partner when you arrive!

Instead of registering as a pair, players register individually for this mixer. Pairs will be matched in advance by the tournament coordinators, and partners will meet when they arrive at the tournament. Each pair will join with two other “blind date” pairs to create a unique team of 6 for each round of the tournament. Following that match, the pairs will then play with different teammates each match!

We are also excited to welcome a special guest speaker who will share a few words about heart health, and we’ll have games and giveaways courtesy of 5=10 Underwear!

February 9th, 9:00 AM – 1:30 PM @ the Rustin Gyms

Call for Volunteer Coaches

January 13th, 2020

Gotham members volunteering to coach teams in lower divisions is one of those things that makes Gotham unique and special.  Our volunteer coaches not only add a layer of skill development and a crucial pair of eyes that a captain needs, but also an important element of moral support. Most teams that play on Saturdays, and some weekday teams, have a volunteer coach working with the team.   Coaches push a player to try harder and, when the player tries and fails, offer encouragement and support.  Coaches are volunteers in Gotham, and the level of involvement with the team depends a lot on the preferences of the team captain.

Once a coach is paired with a captain, the details of the role could be helping to create a line-up, devising and implementing pre-game drills and warm-ups, in-game coaching (calling time-outs and giving feedback to players), and possibly post-game encouragement.  A coach should help players identify the skills needing focus and development.  A coach should also be able to monitor team dynamics (before, during and, possibly even, after play) and take action to remedy situations that occur during a match.  In many respects, the captain is the leader of the team; however, a good coach makes it possible for a captain to succeed.
