Club Unite met back together Monday following the tournament and ran through a fundamental ball control session assuring players stayed on their feet after the long weekend rather than jumping in practice. "Injury prevention is important to me. " says Coach Mincey "I do not think teams should take off after a long run of play but I do think we need to be smart about what we are doing in the gym with them after a long tournament."
Club Unite will return to action this weekend with 2 teams competing on the road.
