On Saturday morning, the team was up early for breakfast on their own in the hotel restaurant. Then, the team piled into a few vans and headed out to ASU’s Sun Devil Stadium for the club's first day of training in Arizona.
With dark clouds over head, the team walked out onto the field but soon the skies opened up in a steady rain that came down throughout training. The team went through an extensive warmup as the coaching staffed stressed the importance of getting loose so no one would pull a muscle. Next, the team went through several passing drills and then broke up into the offense and defense to work on positioning while the forwards worked on their finishing. At the end, a short field 11v11 ended the day.
Be sure to check back tomorrow morning for soundbites and video from today. For now, here are a few photos of the first day. Enjoy!
