Meet the Athlete: Gavin Charpentier

Kate Schneider

How long have you been playing ultimate for?

This will be my first year playing.

Why did you decide to start playing?

I have a lot of friends that play ultimate and they all mention how much fun it is and how it’s a good team.

What are your favorite things about ultimate?

Everybody just has fun playing it together as a team. From what I’ve seen so far, it’s a great group of people so I have fun.

What is your position on the team going to be?

I’m not exactly sure yet, but I think I will most likely be a cutter.

How have you been preparing for the season?

Just working out, training. I’ve been practicing during gym time in school.

What do you think you will bring to the team?

I think honestly just another body on the field. I know the team has grown a lot this year, just in sheer size.

What is your goal for this season?

Just to have fun and get better.

Do you wish you began earlier? Why?

Yeah I do, I find it to be really fun and I wish I’d done it in previous years.

What do you think the hardest thing will be for you this season?

The hardest thing will probably be getting a better understanding of the game flow, because it still seems a little bit awkward to me in games.

How will you adapt to playing a new sport?

Work hard and get the basics down as well as I can, throwing and other very basic things.

How do you think ultimate will help you in the future?

I used to do football, but it’s been a few years since I’ve done a team sport. So I think it will help with cooperation with others and building a team and making friends.
