“It was a great turnout with players coming from in state, out of state, and internationally,” said Director of Sports Performance and Assistant Coach Alan McCann. “We got to see each player through drills and scenarios that our first team are asked to go through in training, so it gave us a great gauge for which players would be the right fit for our environment.”
