Thanks to the team for daily updates…
Day Three of the second phase of Sounders FC training camp saw a lightened load in the conditioning realm, but that didn’t keep things from getting competitive.
The team was split into nine groups of three and played a spirited, close-quarters, nine-man passing game. They played two sessions of the timed drill, and the losing teams from each session had to do pushups.
Next the game expanded in size and included all 27 players with the focus looking to be on movement and ball control in tight spaces while keeping things competitive.
Nate Jaqua and Eddie Johnson were the only players on the sidelines.
The evening session will consist of weight training at Grande Sports World’s training facility.
