VIPERS : BEHIND THE SCENES of CDL 2010’
A field, a court cannot be run without a multidisciplinary team approach. Communication between team players, supporters and other members of the team is vital for positive outcomes and to ensure a high quality healthy game among others.
As we all would know and experienced, the adrenaline rush would start even before the competition itself, such as during trainings, the tense, the mishaps, the unsatisfied feelings, the uncertainties and whatever we call it that has given everyone a kick to tell that every living soul in the team needs to know the meaning of the word “READY”.
Obviously, a blogger’s day starts at the break of dawn with a cup of good coffee to be “READY” even before the competition to keep up with the team’s daily basis. As for the VIPERS, they have to start from scratch. Getting a coach like Danson is tougher than you would have thought, giving his attention on his Viper’s for a 3 hours training 3 times a week and when it is necessary for him to add an extra day in that particular week, he would and won’t take ‘NO’ for an answer, oh well, he is the captain! Our players seems to have drastic improvement during training, not to mention the physical hard work they have given to stay fit, they also using these training as their laughing gas instead, it is to break the unstable emotions, etc, one thing about our team, we never let our feelings linger even about anything just so we won’t get distracted on the important day on CDL. You see, training to us is not just about getting and giving the tense to each other just so everyone would be alert but it is also the time for us to hear each other’s feelings, could be whining, contradicting feelings among the team, conflict about the team, etc…
What’s there to ask for other than having the full team together at any day! In fact for us Vipers having a hard time to even drop a promise to keep up till the last day of CDL. Since it is a tough time to handle so many things at one time, such as Eddly one of the major people in Vipers were having an intense time just to figure out the plans for the group supports and how to handle the team’s timing. It is absolutely essential for him to know the daily basis on our team.
Our group support on the other hand having good commitments among each other, a good argue in choosing a good song, a good footwork, a good outfit. All of these factors here is the alibi in getting the team working together instead of being hypocritical in forcing own body to show up just because of an order, thank goodness our team is not showing any of bad symptoms anytime now.
Having a good leader and a great captain like Eddly and Danson is just a grateful thing our team could ever ask for. A killer Spokesperson Joe, our creative dodgettes, and hard working DODGERS has no obstacles nor whining in having a good fun time and putting integrity as one of the priority for this CAMPUS DODGEBALL LEAGUE 2010!

As you can see our so called “chart” above, to be honest it is pretty much intimidating to see at some number sometimes. But our team would never let a digit to bring or deter us down, we know it is not the end of the world and not the worst of all, because we wont back down,we will never take a day for granted although the feeling of loosing sometimes it’s hard to let go, but with a positive attitude and thinking, what we do we carry through it, we learn from our disappointments, our mishaps as a guide to the next challenges!
All the best of luck you guys!
