Emerald City FC Fitness Training Program

 

Summer Re-Cap and Upcoming Season:

We started this fitness season like every year should start, talking about goals.  Short and long term goals, personal and team goals, and how we go about getting there.  Understanding the process and commitment it takes to get there.  Overall, I am very pleased with the dedication and effort level of every player that has shown up to fitness.  The summer session is intense, as we are gearing up for testing and the Fall Season.  It can be intimidating, and unrelenting at times but, these players showed up and rocked it.

As we close out our testing phase and we head into season maintenance mode, please use fitness as a way to stay healthy and on the field.  We will be shifting to active recovery and teaching these players how to take care of their body.  The goal being optimum amount of playing time!!

We are excited for the upcoming season, GO ECFC!
