The Nordic Caravan in Sweden has really done justice to its name. Using a modern caravan we traveled eastwards to start the third day just outside Gothenburg, in Lerum. Lerum is a new club, with only youth members so far, but they are doing great development work. Last year, they managed to obtain a half pitch with good artificial grass, something which is not always the case in Sweden. Together with good weather and some enthusiastic players from Lerum and Valhalla we had all ingredients for a great clinic!
We saw some familiar faces from last year and some new kids on the block. This group was a bit smaller than in Stockholm, but also a bit older. We were therefore able to go to a higher rhythm, technique and exercises. We added the latin dribble and practiced different interactive exercises to magnify the learning experience. During Hockey Magic we saw some good talent and in the afternoon we explored the 3D world. Goran was working with the goalkeepers and before the end match we also invited three parents, who were supporting us the whole day, to join us for the crossbar challenge, which was a lot of fun.
We were really happy with what the players learned and how much they enjoyed the sessions. Tomorrow we will meet most of them again, only this time it will be in the centre of Gothenburg at Valhalla’s home pitch.
