Going into my upcoming soccer season. Sheesh, I can't remember how many seasons I have coached already. Maybe a dozen or so. I dunno. They were all fun and full of hard work. Monkey is getting a head start on her fitness part, which I stress very hard. I stress fitness, effort, teamwork and communication above skill. We work on skill too, but I focus on the other stuff and making sure the girls have fun while working their tails off. So monkey has been running, hiking and trail running. This morning was a hiking/trail running combo. And she does some body weight exercises at home. Monkey is fairly fit. Monkey is resting near the top with a friend who sometimes hikes and trail runs with her. Crashed near the helipad. So on our first practice this Friday, Indian runs, suicides and ladder drills before playing some games.
