This year’s motto is “loose but amped”. This is from a quote by Matt Slautterback, a previous goalie at Middlebury College, who wrote a list of ten essentials to being a great goalie. Last on the list is the excerpt below, which we believe can be applied to all players:
10. Whatever happens—Wing it—go with it & save the ball. Remember to be loose but amped and that there are certain things you can do to be better but that things will happen in games and in practice that are beyond your control. Don’t think twice about them. Go with it.
Unfortunately Matt’s life ended too soon due to an automobile accident while still a student at Middlebury, and we hope to preserve his legacy by adopting “loose but amped” as our 2019-2020 season motto.
