Wednesday training at Starfire Sports Complex — photo reel

There were three groups in training today. A lot of small field scrimmage work was done — seemed like linking of passes and movement were the keys. The group of players that wasn’t scrimmaging worked on a passing accuracy drill on the side.
The highlight of the day might have been coach Sigi Schmid and a couple members of the staff doing a crossbar challenge.
Here are some pictures:
