What a crazy few days, huh!
As we get back into the swing of things and start to think about the outdoor season I want to thank everyone for your thoughts and concerns over the past week. Although this past week has taken it's toll mentally, I want to reassure y'all that I have received two negative Covid test results and I'm feeling physically fine and looking forward to getting back to the field on Saturday. I'm gratful to be in good health and with the warmer weather and more vacccines ahead I'm optimistic this spring will be a fun one.
Over the next couple days I will be working with Johnny to arrange times for players to receive their player evaluations. These times will likely occur around practice and game times over the next few weeks. There will also be an option to have player evals over Zoom.
The plan for virtual training this week will involve taking part in Zoom meetings from 6-7pm on Wednesday and Thursday. I will follow up with Zoom links for both Wednesday and Thursday this week.
Wednesdays session will include the team performing footskills, turns and aerial control. I plan to lead this session from the Vale facility. Players will require a ball and 5x5 yard open space (players will have the option to be outdoors as long as they still have access to the zoom platform).
Thursdays session (check the information and links below, the team will need access to this info) will be more classroom based but will still involve a physical workout. This session will require a ball and indoor space as well as access to soccer journals.
Video analysis focussing on movement and awareness.
Complete with your feet. Track your score for each skill. Write scores in your Vale soccer journal. We will plan to compare scores at training next week.
