“Children respond well to being trained and improve their fundamentals. This allows us to expand the opportunities when planning matches. Assistant coaches do a great job of planning the game and connecting with the players. It’s nice to be on a three-game winning streak. We will use our week off to rest a bit mentally and physically before getting ready for Buffalo ”, said coach Walton
The Silver Knights begin their week off this Friday, but will be back in action on Oct. 8, at home against Buffalo.
