Ben graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a double major in Accounting and Real Estate. He completed his fifth and final season as a member of the Wisconsin Hodags in May of 2011, ending with a Central Regional title and a 2nd place finish at College Nationals. Born and raised in Minnesota, Ben started playing Ultimate when he was a sophomore at Hopkins High School. Ben attended Junior Elite Methods (JEM) Camp in 2005, which was put on by the University of Colorado Ultimate Frisbee Program. His efforts to bring about Next Level were largely inspired by the enjoyable experience he had while attending JEM Camp as a high school player, and hopes to provide current high school students with a similar opportunity to improve.

After 5 years as a camper, Reiland underwent 3 summers of leadership training, before he was accepted into a staff position as a Minikani counselor. As a counselor, Reiland had the opportunity to plan fun activities, and develop positive characteristics in hundreds of Minikani campers, ranging in ages 8-14. After 2 summers as a Minikani counselor, and 1 more summer as a Minikani expedition leader, Reiland was appointed as the camp’s Boys Unit Director for the summers of 2007 and 2008, where he managed a 100+ member staff, and planned original all-camp activities on a daily basis.
After College, Reiland opened an art studio in St. Paul, MN. where he developed a screen-printing/design partnership called “Spy Print Lab”.

In 2009, Reiland developed the screen-printing business into a sole-propreitorship called “Freehand Press” where he serviced hundreds of clients, including many local Ultimate teams, with printed goods, and brand development/design. In August 2011, Reiland sold his business to long-time affiliate, “Phenom”, a Minneapolis-based clothing brand & retail store.

SAMPLE DAILY SCHEDULE
The below sample schedule is taken from a day dedicated to man to man defense. Skills emphasized for the day include, among other defensive strategies, situational positioning, advanced marking, and help (or poach) Defence. Drills are tailored to build on each other as the day progresses, and each scrimmage focuses on aggregating accumulated defensive knowledge in a game time environment.

Man to Man positioning:
Situational positioning for defenders against a horizontal and vertical offense. Particular attention paid to front/back positioning against a vert offense, and triangle defense against a horizontal stack.
10:00 : Skills Stations
Station 1: Two on Two Lane Defense (Vert)
Two offensive players simulate cutting from a side stack (vert) offense, with two defenders working to stop them on the strong side. Emphasis on positioning and rotation to prevent easy upfield passes.
Station 2: Four on Four Diamond Defense (Horizontal)
Four offensive players simulate cutting in a horizontal stack against four defenders. Emphasis on help D and "choosing" what opportunities to give offense.

Two players match up against one another in a 10 yd by 5 yd vertical column. Defensive goal is to stay in front of cutting offender, while at the same time not giving up more than 2 yards on an out cut (not fronting blindly). Offense is given 10 seconds to cut. Emphasis on defensive foot work and body positioning.
