SKLZ MVP Sascha
“Having the opportunity to be part of the first Elite Female Football Academy Clinic with two amazing coaches and players Head Coach Caity Friend and Assistant Coach Kayla Morrison was amazing!
Over 3 days I got to train with other amazing players and made some great new friendships. We also met some amazing guest speakers during the theory sessions. The clinic was intense, challenging but most of all fun and enjoyable. We had a physiotherapist come and talk to us and teach us the importance of pre-hab and showed us the correct way to use our SKLZ band. We did a lot of drills like passing 1st time, possession based games and played many games. We also did a exciting world cup round robin, my team Germany came 3rd but we played well.
Our last training session, Caity and Kayla gave out a couple of awards. First being the team that won the world cup tournament they got the amazing ‘Park Soccer Balls’. The last award was for the MVP of the clinic which wan an award chosen by the coaches. The prize was a ‘SKLZ pack’ it consisted of a SKLZ ladder, a massage roller and a set of agility cones. The MVP was chosen based over the 3 day period and they looked at; who was consistent, who executed the drills well, overall effort and improvement. But the biggest surprise of all was I was chosen. I didn’t expect it, but it was an amazing feeling. I was so proud of myself and it was also a great reward to be recognised by two amazing players that I respect so much.
Finally, I can’t wait for the next Elite Female Football clinic run by Caity Friend.”
