The first outdoor training session for the 2019 summer season kicked off today on a rather chilly Wednesday evening, at the Helsinki Velodrome. Many of our players could unfortunately not attend the first training session, but the ranks were filled by numerous eager new recruits. We hope to see more of the regulars at the next training session.
We would like to take this opportunity to welcome all our new recruits to the warriors family. We took the training relatively easy today in an attempt to not scare the new players away and hopefully we managed to achieve just that. We trust that we will see everyone at the next practice.
A massive thank you to everyone who contributed to the practice today whether in terms of setting up, clearing the field, encouraging players, assisting in an advisory capacity or helping to make our new players feel welcome and at home. Thanks to the efforts of our previous recruiter our team has grown by several new players this season. In his absence and in the spirit of giving credit where credit is due, we would like to thank Christian for his contribution in this regard despite the fact that he is no longer a member of The Helsinki Warriors.
