TEAM LVS Week #5

TEAM LVS enjoyed a 4-day week with Technique and Tactics on Tuesday and Friday and Classroom on Thursday. Wednesday the entire program spent time with the residents at the Lakewood Village Retirement Home. The Lady Vikings were able to touch the lives of the residents in many different ways from serving cookies, to painting nails, to just listening to stories. Many of the residents have no family to come visit them, so having these young ladies around the home, brightens the day for these residents. The Lady Vikings will continue to be active in the Lakewood Village Retirement Home throughout the year.

A full week for the first time in 2 weeks, saw TEAM LVS get to work on the field on Tuesday and Friday... the team is getting a lot of work on the technical elements of the game and this week in and around goal. Friday the team got an opportunity to go to goal in 2v2 and 4v4 situations and the group looked sharp. On Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday the group spent time in the classroom organizing their leadership manuals, with an emphasis on details, mental evaluation, and IMPACT. The group also discussed what they have determined as their building blocks. It was exciting to see so many players give their input. Next week, the players will begin their fitness logs and travel to Lakewood Village on Wednesday.

The Lady Vikings enjoyed a 4-day week with the group celebrating Labor Day on Monday. The team comes in on Tuesday and hit the field with a technical session followed up with a possession emphasis. Wednesday and Thursday the group was in the classroom hitting on the Mental Makings of a Champion and their Mentoring Groups. The discussions are becoming much more interesting as more players are getting involved. Friday the group hit the field again with a technical emphasis on taking space and dribbling. As temperatures rised above 100, the group pushed through and are becoming more comfortable with each other. Week 4 will be the first full week in 2 weeks and the focus will continue on getting the group closer with each other on and off the field.
