Gunston Soccer Club Families,
Thank you to everyone who participated in our challenges last week. Week #2 had some tough challenges, but we were happy to see everyone who participated work through them. We are glad to see so many of our athletes still working on improving themselves during this break - that dedication and effort will make you better players when we get back on the field!
For Week #3, the challenges will continue to be pretty difficult at times. Again, we recommend breaking them down and starting slow at first until you get used to it. Please practice each challenge at least a couple of times before recording a video. Make sure to watch the video carefully and make sure what you send us is exactly what we demonstrate in the video. If you have any questions about a challenge, please don’t hesitate to reach out. All videos need to be submitted by 9:00pm on the day of the challenge.
This week our Bonus Challenges will be a little different. We will post five different ways to get the ball up to start juggling. After the trick you will need to complete a minimum of five juggles if you are U9 or older, two juggles if you are U8 or younger. You will get two bonus points for each video you send clearly showing you are able to successfully complete the trick. Please make sure you watch the videos closely for these as well and do exactly what we demonstrate.
Make sure to send the videos to one of our social media accounts or email:

Good luck to everyone this week!
