Training Update

  • Wednesday 2/12/20 – There will be no regularly scheduled training.
  • Open gym has started on Mondays & Wednesdays @ 8-9pm in the Small Gym. This is a great opportunity for players to build connections and begin playing together.
  • Player preparedness – this includes being ready to go on time (please arrive 15 minutes early), bring water, wearing appropriate shoes, and having a properly inflated soccer ball.

Training Schedule Change

Exam week training schedule change: Strength training has been moved up in time to 3pm on both Tuesday and Thursday to best fit with this week’s exam schedule.  The regular training schedule will resume next week (starting 1/27/2020).
