Today we had two practices. In the morning session, we always do a lot of serve and pass reps and we also work on a lot of defensive drills. We also went over our different defensive systems.
After the first session, we had Pita Pit for lunch and we also had people from the Step Up program come talk to us. Today we talked about relationships ranging from ones with a significant other to your relationship with your teammates and coaches. I think that it’s important to know what a healthy relationship is and what an unhealthy relationship is. We went through different scenarios and talked about how we could help in a certain situation and what are ways you could go about approaching someone who may not be in a healthy relationship.
When the Step Up program was over, we had about two hours of rest before the second session. In the second session we did some ball control drills and then we went through rotations and did a lot of siding out drills.
Overall, it was a very productive day of practices. Tomorrow is our off day and we take all of our media pictures and move the first years into their dorms! We also have our Hoo’s Top Chef cook off which I am really looking forward to.
