Do you remember our last indoor game??? What a fiasco that was - but at least we got to go out to lunch afterwards, right? Feels like a lifetime ago doesn't it. This stoppage comes at a difficult time because our girls trained tirelessly all winter long, we were just getting involved in our indoor league and we were looking ahead to the RDYSL season which seemed like it was right around the corner.
So much has changed and that became even more evident as Kerri and I received cancellation/rescheduling emails for the two tournaments we had planned on participating in. The Akron tournament is off and they are not planning on rescheduling. The GUFC tournament has been rescheduled for July 24-26 [the weekend before tryouts]. We’ll need to know which families would be able to participate in this new date if we decide to move forward with the tournament [so please respond to this email based on this new date].
I wish I had more to share. Shane, Kerri and I all miss the team, the giggles at practice and the interaction with all the girls that we’ve experienced for the past number of months. We’ll be ready to go whenever we’re allowed to resume activities [I have bookmarked, brainstormed and scratched down so many drills/ideas for practice that I think I’m good all the way through next summer!] and we’ll be excited to hear what the girls have been up to!
As far as any at home training goes, there are a number of sources that I would refer you to if you’re interested: Coach Schneider has been posting items [a challenge of the day] on the Spencerport Girls Soccer Twitter account and the Spencerport Soccer Club has been posting drills each week on Facebook and Twitter. Bryan Coe sent out an email to familes this afternoon you can access [google link I believe]. You can even check out the Spencerport GLax twitter account to see Cat Wall running through a footwork drill focused on quickness and agility! We’ve been so lucky to have her input at our indoor games so far! Lastly, the following link is one I believe I've sent before - this creator has many other videos if you/your daughter want to take a deep dive into his channel [the YouTube rabbit hole you can down is endless]
Stay healthy – that’s the most important part, right? We hope each of your families [immediate and extended] is healthy, now and in the months to come.
