End of a great week

Today was KILLER!! We had 8 athletes and a solid training session over some competitive drills. As a team we are starting to pretty consistent ball and we are all pushing each other for the top spot.

Chaim and I played quite well throughout this week and I am looking forward to the next three weeks of more competition based training before flying to the Cayman Islands. Christian Redman and Rich Vonhuizen are playing well and I am hoping we will be able to play a few test matches against them next week to start our video analysis. Our coach still hasn't commented on specific team strategy details and through taping our matches and going over the footage with him, it will allow us to adjust our team play prior to our first competition.

Our next two months are shaping up to be full of events, here is our travel itinerary:

March 12th - 22nd NORCECA Grand Caymans
March 23rd - March 28th NORCECA San Salvador, El Salvador
March 29th - April 5th NORCECA Boca Chica, Dominican Republic
April 6th - April 12th NORCECA Guatemala City, Guatemala
April 13th - April 19th Training in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
April 19th - April 25th FIVB Open Brasilia, Brazil

So that is our tournament schedule for the next little while and it will most certainly keep us busy!

I can't wait to get out of the cold north to catch some rays and play on a real beach! Indoor beach volleyball just ins't as satisfying and the sport is far superior when you have to deal with heat, wind, sun, humidity and a stadium full of fans!

Have a great weekend,
