WNT Mar 30, 2012
Needless to say, the U.S. WNT (and all U.S. Soccer teams) are "dressed to the nines" when it comes to training equipment.
Thanks to our partners Nike and Kwik Goal for providing the absolute best to allow the U.S. team to train at its peak!
But U.S. equipment manager Matt Owens is taking it to another level, giving head coach Pia Sundhage and the coaches a one-stop shopping area for anything they might need during training.
You need bibs in three different colors? He's got'em.
You need dozens of cones in four different colors? Check.
How about coaching sticks in three colors? How many you need and where do you need them?
Training Opponent Mannequins (which are used in many ways during training)? Bingo.
The soccer balls? 50 already on the field and properly inflated.
It's like soccer practice paradise (but now you see why the U.S. team doesn't travel light).
