Back at it…

The dreaded Yo-Yo

The dreaded Yo-Yo Test

The title says it all… After some baseline fitness testing for the boys last week out at UBC, we finally got to pick up the sticks again on Tuesday. It has been a long 5 weeks since our last game at the Champions Challenge in December and although we have been busy on the treadmill and in the weight room over the holidays there is always a special soreness that comes after the first on-field session back. Luckily a few ice baths, roll outs and maybe a yoga session or two over the next week will help sort that out.

However, despite the soreness and cold January weather there was a good competitive atmosphere at training, which I think has been aided by the introduction of some new juniors into the fold. Although maybe not quite as dramatic as the addition of Portman and Mendoza in Mighty Ducks 2 each of these young guns bring something to the table and generally increase the level of competition at training. In my mind, competition is a healthy thing in any team training environment and will only serve to push guys to train harder on and off the pitch.

Overall I think it’s been a promising start to the year and I am looking forward to see where guys are at during our first inter-squad match tonight…
