The camp included participants from Europe, South and Central America as well as many Blues’ players from the 2014 season hoping to play their way on to Coach Wyss’s 2015 squad.
Wyss and staff ran a vigorous camp, working to get players fit for the quickly approaching season. Training included strength and conditioning exercises, specific position drills, and 11v11 scrimmages.
Coach’s staff this week included many experienced trainers like former Liverpool and Newcastle defender Barry Venison, who came in to evaluate the level of play and provide a different set of eyes; bringing his vast experience from playing in England.
“The camp is a great start to the season and I am looking forward to it since we have learned a lot from the great staff.” commented Jiovanni Santana. “Coach ran the camp with a lot of discipline and leadership, which is needed to become a top club in the league.”
With the coming season, Wyss is working hard to put together a team that will demonstrate discipline and most importantly will win.
