    What do you think you need to improve, if so what do you think the team need to improve on?

    I need to improve on my dodging and stick skills more because I feel like I can do better. I don't think we need to improve on anything now because the only problem we had was communication but we fixed that.

    Any advice for the new comers next year? Why do you think they should join?

    Be prepared to condition because it's a running sport. They should join because it's a really fun sport and it's a really good experiment to play. Because everyone one there is committed to make the team better.
