An old friend was also welcomed in (old timer, really, when it comes to floorball), national goalkeeper need-i-really-mention-his-name?
Training kicked off with an old favourite - Snakes. Now when was the last time...
Moving on, Coach Jason Chan stated that the focus of the next few months will be passing, in order to have the Frontliners "play like a team". And so in tandem with that, a new drill was introduced. It was essentially two drills slapped together, involving passing in pairs and attempting score past Lin Ken (the latter being what the coach called "the thrill").
That said and done, the floorballers were divided into two groups and did the X-box drill, new but soon-to-be-old.
The seniors were then pitted against the juniors, one side playing offense and the other defense. And whether old or new, teamwork was obviously crucial for both sides. Attackers had to communicate and pass, while the defenders kept a tight formation, fending off any incoming shot.
Finally, the oldest, most routinely part of training: Match-time. The ladies played 3-on-3, which was pretty tiring. The others sweated it out with five-a-side, Pei Li being the only rose among the thorns (though she's more than used to it already).
Point of interest: Frontliners was proud to host one of the best goalkeepers in the world (self-proclaimed) and its picture will hopefully be up soon. Although it still let in a few goals. Nothing's perfect, remember?
Old drills go, new drills come. Old floorballers go, new floorballers come. Speaking of which, Frontliners Floorball Club is definitely growing in size and strength.
Till next week, then.
