I don't like the on/off switch either, its part of the "give 110% every time" mentality. Besides in a tournament every game matters. A former teammate used to do something in warmups to get things going. Before every game he would make a point to layout in warmups, sometimes slowing down to create the distance needed for a layout. This accomplishes two things 1) gets you past the mental block of the layout and 2) psyches up the rest of the team for the game ahead.

That being said another former teammate injured himself in practice/warmups. Broke his wrist laying out in practice. Then his first tournament back he broke his other wrist warming up for the first game! Though he had terrible form; rolled his hands under to break his fall and wrists.

Take home messages, give your best every time, get psyched up, learn proper form.

Accessories are one of my favorite things, and forearm shivers, made for playing football on turf fields, work great in ultimate. You don't want them with any padding, because as people said, they will mess with your throws. UnderArmour makes shivers which are just skin tight sleeves with come from your wrist up above your elbow. They don't move around, and spare your elbows the scraping of laying out on dry ground. http://www.underarmour.com/shop/mens/accessories/protective-gear/football/pid8000033-HeatGear-Forearm-Shiver/8000033-600

I've never had any abrasion on my knees. Hips used to bother me, but wearing a skin tight layer beneath your jersey helps a lot. My elbows would be constantly chewed up before I found the shivers, however. Only downside is you get funny tan lines.

Gref - I hear Amart Allsports have a new range of finger guards. You should invest in some for layout protection.

Cheesy

After Nationals I am now very confused on if I need anything or not. Going ho into the mud has screwed my perception of landing on grass damn it... Until League anyway...

3 Things:

1. Land and slide on your chest.   Play a bit of volleyball, those guys know how to layout proper, watch and copy.  Given that some fields are dry in Oz... perhaps you should practise in NZ for a bit.  I'm sure Vancouver will be just awesome.

2. I've seen some sports people wear skin tight leggings and long-sleve shirts. I'm sure under-armour or relevant sports manufacturers make these.  But they would probably make you a bit warmer, and slide heaps easier on the grass (ahem, i mean dirt in oz, hehe).

3. Played any soccer?  Have you noticed what the goalkeepers wear?  No i don't mean those gloves, but their SHIRTS have padding sewn into the elbows, and their SHORTS have padding sewn into the hip area... not sure the cost, but prob about AU$40 would get you a pair of those shorts?

I used to play cricket and got mega grazes on the elbows, hips and knees... but after playing ultimate, one of the first things i learnt was to lay-out proper... i don't know if that skill is in the ultimate books that are floating around, but it damn well should be!

Yeah, I'm starting to get back into the feel of things. Layouts are becoming more natural again not really thinking about it.
My shoulder is feeling good which means my form is fine, lol.

I will probably end up just using tape to cover any graze areas, but who knows.

Just don't worry about it. No tournament is long enough that you get too cut up, even if you are making bids all the time, unless you are playing on broken glass.

Haha. Yeah.
But we do play something like 13 games or something at worlds and judging on my performance at Youth nats I think im just going to have to tape up my hip. That should be about it. I can just wear a sweat band for my arm.

Just grazes. Nothing more. Nothing less.

Having seen you layout lex, your form is pretty good.

You keep your legs up and take the hit on your body rather than arms. So in this case, I agree with maple.

(If you need clarification on this, just ask Buttons)

Anyway, I have never seen a layout graze that has stopped someone from playing. It would have to be one hell of a graze (ie, the type you get when you stack your pushie doing 30k's down a hill) to prevent most players from retaking the field. If you ever have to handle, Australia is certainly in the shit. So it shouldn't effect you too much. Unless you have problems regrazing the spot.

Yeah, from my orginal question it was due to the January camp for Juniors.
Worst ground ever. Well, not ever but it was pretty bad.

I lay'd a lot and as a result crap grounds my elbow was getting to the point of almost seeing bone.
Even ask Piers.

But since I've gotten back into the grove just before worlds I think that not much is needed. Just the tape so I can have a shower at the end of the day and not yell due to stinging Wink

I've learned from sliding in various forms in baseball over the years some tips that have worked well when laying out in ultimate.

If you realize you're going to land on your hip, try to get your lower thigh in line w/ your body (Knee can be bent, just keep hip and thigh in line). In that position the muscle isn't flexed/stretched in anyway, and provides a little bit of protection, and won't pull if you roll or slide awkwardly.

If you are going to land on your shoulder, keep your arm directly underneath your body, or straight over head. Pretty much for the same reason as before.

Hope these help.
