Falcon's Nest Notes: Optional Soccer Workouts Score Big Over Sukkot Holiday

A week and a half is a long time off for any team, so the coaches and players of the new Flatbush outdoor boys varsity soccer team did something about it. Coaches Skolnick and Amzalag organized three non-mandatory practices for any team members in the Brooklyn area over the Sukkot holiday break. The practices were held in Marine Park, and using portable goals, the sessions proved to be both exciting and productive.
With 6 overall training sessions now under their belts, the boys are really starting to show considerable improvement. Every day, the players are enthusiastic in their efforts, growing both in skill and in tactical play. The focus on the practice pitch has been teaching the team to play intelligently, to control the ball effectively and to learn to use space efficiently in stretching out defenses and breaking down opponents. And, the coaches are in agreement that the team is definitely moving in the right direction. Opined Coach Skolnick, “we are very pleased with the dedication the students are showing, and are excited for a successful season!”

Nest Notes:
The short inaugural season will get underway this Sunday, October 26, as the boys head south to take on Golda Och Academy in West Orange, NJ for their Flatbush debut. Game time is 10:00 am.
