Julia Zimmermann explains about the Team Hero Europe
The Hero Disc USA has started the year with a great news .They have selected the members of the Team Hero Europe . You are the capitan of the team . What will be your role/task as a capitan?
As Captain my role / task is in first place to be a good example for all team members. I´m the one they can ask everything they want to know, to help them out if they have any problems and I am the one who is managing the stuff they need to promote the team. Of course I am the one who has an eye on them... how they present the team... too. It is a very complex "job" and I really love it! It is a great thing to promote Hero Disc USA AND the greatest dog sport on earth, together with teams from different European countries. I´m VERY proud to have the honor to be the Team captain!!
Can you explain to us how It's all started?How did they arrive to this idea?
Well, the idea of a Team Hero here is not that new. Many years ago,when we had the first AWI qualifier in Germany,there already was a rumor about this could happen. But then nothing happens and no one was thinking about that anymore. Last year Thomas Sander brought the idea back on table and this time it happened :) Thanks again Thomas! And thanks to Hero Disc USA and Matt DiAno to make it happen! All team members are super excited and proud to be part of another piece of history in the Discdog world and we all will do our very best to make it a success! It is a great chance to bring the people/ countries in the sport closer together!
What is exactly the meaning of being a member of this team?
Being a member of the Team Hero means we promote. We promote Hero Disc USA AND the sport!! It is NOT just about being successful at competitions! Not just about to promote the sport with shows. It is about to help the sport to keep going,to grow ,to bring in new people and help them out with getting started and so on. It´s about to help the sport with not just playing at events, to help at events ( like judging,set up,tear down ) or even host them . And of course, we are a TEAM that wants to show that it is awesome to support each other and work together for the same thing,even if we are from different countries, even everyone has it´s own style,opinion,it´s own way.....but we ALL play the same game with our awesome fury partners,so we all have the same goal...keep it going... as you can see, to be a member of the team is a lot more than just being sponsored from Hero Disc USA and promote their products :) Hero Disc USA gives us the chance to give our best back to the sport we love, the sport that gives us so much. Thanks for that!!
About the AWI championship...Something has changed in the T&C field...
YES! We made a little change for the T/C field to give some more thrill to the game :) We added an accuracy zone. The lines stay the same, 15, 25 and 35 yards...at 40 yards there will be a circle that is 5 yards in diameter. Any catch made with at least one paw in this zone will result in an additional point. This zone is a little deeper than the last scoring line, encouraging a sort of "gamble" of time vs potential payoff. :) SO let the games begin :)) We hope you ALL have fun with this. Looking forward to see you on the green!! AND GO TEAM HERO Europe !!
