4 Weeks Strong - Onto Step 3...
We've been back training now for a month and although it's different we're very grateful to have the opportunity of progressing through GBWR's 5 step plan. This week we moved up to step 3 and can now work in groups of up to five and passing a ball within those groups. Still no contact though but we have that to look forward to at the next step. There's more to look forward to with talks of friendly competition some time in the summer. Follow us on our social sites for updates. Thank you to GBWR and Aspire for their continued support.
