Summer is quickly approaching and that means the 2019 season is just around the corner! With that being said, as the summer approaches it is now the most critical portion of our off-season. We will be starting player development, open gyms, and weight training the week of June 10th. Off season summer training is open to all prospective student-athletes currently enrolled at Davenport Central High School for the 2019-20 school year.
OFF SEASON EXPECTATIONS:
Expectations are high here and current players and future players must make a choice to share these expectations or make the commitment to meet them.
The emphasis for our off-season training this season is to focus on allowing all players to be mentally refreshed as well as getting everyone in shape to compete at a high level while avoiding injury, to improve team chemistry and to give our senior class a chance to lead the way in the weight room.
Summer open gyms , weight training, summer leagues, and team camps are strongly recommended for all girls interested in trying out in the fall. Please make sure you do your part and be prepared and in shape for pre -season! Don’t come to the first day of practice and regret you’re not in shape.

2019 TEAM COLLEGE CAMPS:
On-field chemistry and off-field chemistry feed into each other. This summer we plan to attend Augustana Team Camp(July 12th) and the two day University of Iowa Team Camp (July 22nd and 23rd). These two Team Camps will help new and current teammates get to know each other better, battle together, trust each other and have fun. Each player will be expected to cover the player fee. In regards to transportation, school vans cannot be used for out-of-season transportation—We would need parent volunteers to help with transportation, so other arrangements would need to happen.
*Coach Darland will hold some meetings during DC Times at school to discuss and disperse information about possible fundraising for those wanting to attend camps, etc.
