One week in...

Well, we're a week into camp and the team is beginning to take shape. With a new-found focus on possession play, there has been a lot of learning that has taken place over the course of a week, and still much more to go. It's the simple things that will make us stronger, and if we continue to focus on quality first touches, passing and receiving, and communication, we will be a team that will not only challenge for titles year in and year out, but will also be enjoyable to watch!

Competition is fierce this year, with another quality recruiting class joining us at camp. This will undoubtedly add to the quality of our team this year, but more importantly to the quality of our program moving forward. It's a testament to the hard work players have put into off-season training, and the coaches into recruiting.

We have a few big tests coming up to see where our team is in comparison to quality opposition, with exhibition games against Cornell University on Thursday, McGill on Saturday and either U of T or Western on Sunday (Old Four). Our preseason play comes to an end on Saturday, September 7th against the University of Ottawa on Tindall Field here at Queen's University.

I hope all who follow my blog are well, and sincerely hope you continue to follow us this season!

Until next time...

Coach Gencarelli
