    What is everyone doing while things are shut down? Our teams are subscribing to Techne Futbol and doing social media challenges so far

    I'm starting to think of what social media challenges we can do to inspire our team to 'play soccer at home' and stay active.

    The club forwarded some links to the team, it really didn't inspire team engagement over our teamsnap platform.

    Our Club has been doing a pretty good job. They’ve got kids posting almost non-stop with their challenges.

    Technical question regarding plant foot: do you land on your forefoot or heel? Or is it dependent on the type of strike you are executing?

    Generally speaking when running and jumping you don't land on the heel.

    My state association held an update video call with DOCs today. They said we're resuming play 4/15. Apparently, we're on the Trumpian schedule. Damn the torpedoes. Full speed ahead. I can't believe it. I was fully expecting to hear the spring season was cancelled.

    They are going to get a lot of pushback. What will they do if the local governments close the facilities. Most places schools are already closed, if your club uses a school property there will be a lot of forfeited matches and no training.

    My impression is that they've missed the forest for the trees.

    Same in our state. If they start up that soon, me and my kids will be sitting out the spring season.

    Our club directors voted to continue to suspend activities as long as the schools are closed. I guess that's easier for an all-volunteer club to stomach than it might be at a club where peoples' jobs are at stake.
