Coach Tim Young Previews the Soccer Season

October 22, 2020

So far this season the school football team is looking like it is in good shape with the bulk of last year’s players returning and many new faces joining us. The squad is almost double the size of that of the previous year, and one of the largest the school has had in quite a few years.

With football being a contact sport, and with the squad made up of a mixture of day and boarding students of various ages, the new ‘corona guidelines’ have meant everyone involved has had to adapt. Luckily the students have been very understanding that health should always come first, even if that means changing the way we train together.

With any chance of competitive matches being played looking highly unlikely until at least the spring, we have been trying to make the most of this time by concentrating on individual skills and learning to create space by moving off the ball. We are all looking forward to putting this to good use come springtime.
