Week 9 Training

What a crazy weather week we’ve had!  Looks like this week will be a good mix of Oregon weather as well.  We are hearing more from the league as to the types of restrictions and protocols we will be needing to implement as a club in order to get back on the field with players once the state’s restrictions begin to open up for sports participation.  It will be an interesting beginning with a focus on individual skills and training (just like the Timbers/Thorns are focusing on right now…).  I am looking forward to when we’ll be able to see each other and train together, but until then I hope our players are continuing to enjoy getting in those touches!

Here are this week’s skills

I thought we’d go local for our full game this week since the Portland Timbers are running classic games each week.  I’m not sure how long this link will be up, but this was a good rivalry Timbers-Sounders game from 2016.  Get to it soon to make sure you can watch it!  Enjoy!

Don’t forget about the juggling challenge, and remember to take a look at our previous posts for some more skills challenges and ideas.
