"Just a quick last note to tell you that most of the floors are on smooth cement. However in Abangaries the floor was cement but quite rough. Putting in a hard training session makes our Canadian facilities seem unreal with cool air and non-open architecture (to allow wind/air to try and cool the gym). Hard to be cool since most roofs are mainly metal with no insulation and when the sun is really hot outside you can imagine that it transfers that heat into the air. You also have more humidity to deal with that we are not used to. No wonder they say that the players do not move well and are weaker defensively.

Kids are kids and as long as there is a ball they are satisfied. A lot of drive and determination can go a long way. Tammy said that many of the beaches she trained on were just that, “beaches”, and not all sand is soft. They figure that through the Symposium and through the coaches and athletes we each met on our individual tours about 400-500 athletes, coaches and teachers were met by Tammy and myself. Guess now it is up to FECOVL to carry on what I think was a positive start.
