We’ve just arrived in Albufeira, Portugal, for the 2010 NSCAA Algarve Cup Symposium, and we’re just about to head into the Auramar hotel meeting room for our first couple sessions:
1) Introduction, Goals, Game Updates and Philosophy
2) Presentation #1 – FIFA Development in Women’s Soccer, presented by April Heinrichs
3) Presentation #2 – Integrating Psychological Skills Training into Coaching, presented by Dr. Colleen Hacker
A couple photos from our arrival today. First, the sign in the lobby of the Montecero Hotel:
Here are Laura Flynn and Erin DeMarco on a mushroom carousel in front of Lick It, the Ice Cream Shop. Ah, Europe.
The Auramar Hotel. Beach pics tomorrow!
The group of early arrivals. We all took the same flight from Lisbon to Faro and drove to Albufeira together.
More to follow including tomorrow’s schedule. On the docket: USA vs. Norway – woohoo!!!
