After getting Monday off, the guys returned to the field today. The session began at 10 a.m. with a review of Saturday's game tape. After about 30 minutes, they hit University Field #1 at The Home Depot Center to stretch.
Following a light jog around the field, Associate Head Coach Dave Sarachan divided the the players into four groups. The drills focused on dribbling, first touch passing and communication.
After that, players did went through a possession drill for about 20 minutes before pulling the goals out to play a small-sided game.
During the game, the intensity and the willingness to do things right for this week’s game started to show. Players were supporting, yelling, congratulating and criticizing each other.
The players ended today's training session by doing some sprints before leaving to go to Childrens Hospital Los Angeles to deliver toys that were donated through the Summer Santa program during Saturday's match.
