UP Coach Dani Glass talks about a day at Training Camp 2013.
We’ve only just finished Day 3 of camp, but already the days are beginning to blur together in a whirlwind of practice, activities, personalities, and languages. The sun and our long hours has gotten to me and I am falling asleep while writing this, so I’m going to have to keep it short and sweet. Yesterday we had a long 4 hour block of practice time in the morning, so we took a break in the middle to play some team games like “Wah,” a quintessential part of UP. It’s almost like a sixth core value: Mutual Respect, Integrity, Fun, Non-Violence, Friendship, and Wah. We practiced layouts from the knees, and the Mamas were good sports – some enjoyed it more than others, as always, but we saw some good effort during our laid-back, slow paced partner drill.
