Monday
was the first full day of the Dynamo Residential Camp taking place at Our Lady
of the Lake University in San Antonio, Texas. The campers got an early start to
their day after waking up for an 8 a.m. breakfast. They were then separated into
their respective age groups and for the next three hours, the groups trained and sat through soccer-related lectures. The training session
covered defending, while the lectures covered the path to excellence, and what it takes to become a professional soccer player.

After
lunch, the campers were split into groups of three for a 3v3 futsal
tournament inside the gymnasium. It was a welcome break for the campers, to get out of the heat, and play competitive games in front of their peers.

After the futsal tournament, the campers enjoyed their snack break, as they watched
the U-17 World Cup. After their snack break, the campers went back outside and participated in finishing drills. The day ended, with full-field 11v11 games on the Our Lady of the Lake University match field. After all the age groups finished with their training and games, the
campers ate dinner in the dining hall before heading back to
Flores Hall for the night.
