Day 3 started with a morning practice and time spent in the Yoga Studio. Players learned the importance of training not just strength and cardio, but mobility and flexibility as well. Mobility work is often left behind in a lot of athlete's training regiments but is an integral part of an athletes strength and resiliency to injury. The takeaway for players, "Your Mind will fail you before your body", or in other words, you are more capable than you know.
CCM was also on campus showing off the latest gear and players were given the chance to look at the latest equipment and ask questions about gear, sticks and skates.
Another round of games in the afternoon saw Team White stay undefeated with a 3-0 win over Team Red and Team Sky Blue is still looking for it's first win and it's first loss with an 0-0-3 record.
