OAKVILLE, ON — On Saturday June 3rd, teams from the Junior Academy were joined by members of the Blue Devils League1 Team for a training session at Appleby College.
The training session consisted of teams working through three stations led by League1 players. Each station included a combination of games and skill development activities.
The Academy teams worked on goalkeeping skills with League1 goalkeeper Matt George and the Blue Devils centre back Connor Mcnamara, with each rotation ending in a shootout on Matt George. A short-sided game was led by Logan Podrebarac and Victor Gallo, while Braden Culver and Blue Devils alumn Anthony Doran worked with players on ball control followed by a crossbar challenge.
The mentorship session provided a great opportunity to not only have fun, but for players to learn and engage with the First Team players.
