2022 pre-season outdoor workouts/kickabouts, anyone?
For a nominal fee based on the number of keeners who sign up, we hope to offer you 90-minute pre-season workouts/kickabouts this spring at the new state-of-the-art Julian De Guzman Park on Farmer’s Way in Gloucester, operated by BA veterans and sponsors Ron Palaczka and Jon Paradis. The start date would be as close as possible to the final snow melt. If we’re able to train in April, we’ll of course avoid indoor-league Thursday nights to start. Apologies in advance to anyone and everyone whose schedule clashes with the bookings we manage to secure.
We did this “training” thing informally several years back in the dome, with activities and small-sided games catering to keepers and outfielders alike; after everyone overcame the dry heaves from overexertion and we explained the concept of concentration, we had a blast. The idea is to give you a bit of cardio along with a zillion touches more than you’d get during a regular game. At the same time, we’d be supporting Ron and Jon in their new venture and could actually combine one of the sessions with our SAGM on location at the German Club right after and encourage them as well. Win-Win-Win.
NEEDED: Experienced “coaches” willing to plan and run an activity “station” during the training part of these sessions. Please contact Ray firstname.lastname@example.org if you can volunteer your time, knowledge… and willingness to repeat instructions six times :). Merci!
We’ll be back to you with dates, times and sign-up info later this month. Spots will be limited; so here again, first come, first served, first winded.
