Chester Romans Preseason Camp

The Chester Romans Preseason Camp took place this past weekend, with the intense, two-day event working to build on all aspects of the adult team. Starting on Saturday at 6am, the adult team took on a mix of on- and off-field activities and training sessions to improve as a team.

Starting with special teams practice and film session, the camp weekend started at an intensity that wouldn’t drop throughout. Special guest speaker, Glenn Edwards, spoke to the team on ‘The DNA of a Champion’ after special teams, putting the squad in the right mindset for the rest of camp and beyond. Team practice number one followed, with players running through drills to hone technique and physicality, before a lunch break and team photos.

A highly-entertaining, cognitive team-building exercise of Head Coach Levi Edwards’ making followed before transitioning to the field for the final practice session of the day.

Day two of the Chester Romans Preseason Camp began with a recovery yoga session led by the excellent Netty Hodson of Lifestyle Fitness Deeside before the first practice of the day, with special guest coaches Phoebe Schecter and Kenny OB of the UK Dukes. Sharing their expertise with each position, the UK Dukes also spent time with our youth and junior teams,

With further film and training sessions throughout the Sunday, the adult team finished at 18:30, exhausted but united in the goal of making 2020 a Roman year.
