So, it's the off-season, now what?

Players -- it is the off-season -- it's a time for everyone to enjoy all those other activities and commitments that life brings. But if you miss Rugby or just need something to do, take a look at the USA Rugby website and click on the "Fit to Play" link. This will lead you to lists of pre-season and off-season work-out sessions including circuit training and other recommended workouts. If you are not involved in another sport, find a work-out partner(s) and try to keep yourself active. Following one of the USA Rugby conditioning plans is a great way to challenge yourself and improve your fitness.

Working out off season will improve the quality of your play, improve the team as a whole and lead to good habits for healthy living (it's not all about rugby).

Something to aspire to:

The Wisconsin U19 Blog reported this story (Wisconsin U19 Girls Rugby: Our First Alumna Eagle!) about Kati McCormick being selected for the U.S. National team, the Eagles, on thier tour of England this December. While she is not a Brookfield alumna, I wanted the Brookfield players to see that local girls can make good. Not all players have the desire to play at that level, but if this is a goal for you, playing in the Wisconsin U19 league is a great place to start. Hopefully some day our club will have alumnae Eagles of our own.
