The U.S. women's national team has its first training camp of 2017 next week. The MLS and NWSL are in their offseasons. So how are players expected to remain fresh?
By kicking exercise balls at each other at full force.
Take it from soccer's power couple in Sydney Leroux Dwyer and Dom Dwyer. They tried it outside in full winter gear. (Note: It looks like they replaced their soccer cleats with boots.)
Let's play a game where we kick the ball at each other as hard as we can? 😩😂 pic.twitter.com/7NZpV3M4sE— Sydney Leroux Dwyer (@sydneyleroux) January 5, 2017
Does it look like a lot of fun? Absolutely. Judging from Sydney's kick, she hasn't missed a beat since having a baby and might be able to return to the USWNT whenever she wants.
But one question remains after watching the video: Did Baby Cassius shoot this?
