All 28 members of the 2010 men's soccer reported to their first team practice at 7 a.m. this morning at Valley Fields.

Conditioning and fitness was the focus of this morning's pracitce followed by another training session at 9:30 a.m. in which attacking drills were introduced. There were also periods of simulated play on a shortened field that began with four players per side and eventually became 6 v. 6, concentrating on defensive shape.

After team lunch the players will have a break until 3 p.m. when they will again assemble in their locker room at Marquette Gym for an hour-long meeting on tactics lead by head coach Louis Bennett. Tactical training is then scheduled from 4:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. at The Valley.

There will be a functional training session tomorrow morning and another tactics meeting in the afternoon prior to the squad's annual Blue vs. Gold scrimmage slated for an 8 p.m. kickoff at Valley Fields. There will be free admission and parking for Tuesday's intra-squad match.
