We completed our first week of training and conditioning for the upcoming soccer season. The efforts of these young men and woman is certainly commendable. They were pushed beyond their comfort zones, and really demonstrated a willingness to reach new physical and mental capabilities. They showed a resiliency unlike never before. Moreover, they continually offered words of encouragement towards each other in those moments when the pain and exhaustion seemed overwhelming. When faced with adversity and new challenges, they really rose to the occasion. Words cannot fully express how excited the coaches are for this upcoming season!
Next week we will work heavily on the fundamentals of soccer: ball control, passing, positioning, possession, shooting, and team defending. Practices will begin at 7:00am and conclude at 9:00am because of Teacher Week.
Have a restful weekend!
