Dogtown Youth Sessions: Eunice at the Estadio
VBFC Girls: Eunice Beckmann drops by the Estadio
Day one of Dogtown Youth sessions was a special beginning to the week. The youth girls had the opportunity to learn from two-time Bundesliga winner Eunice Beckmann. Eunice has played in our weekly pickup game several times, and it was evident shortly after her debut that she was a world-class player. her technique, flair, and the joy she has for the game shines through whenever she is on the ball. at the clinic, she showcased this to the young girls to show them what the future could look like for them with the right mindset.
Before hitting the court for estadio-style pickup, The girls were put through some technical and conditioning work on the beach to warm up and work on the physical side of their game.
Dedication to hard work: at the end of the session, Eunice was able to spend some time with the girls and breakdown what it took for her to get to the highest level of the women's professional game. one thing she was sure to get across to these girls: play every chance that you get and work hard when no one is looking. even in her off-season, Eunice made time to get out to Venice to join in on Sundays. Eunice has now opened the page to the next chapter in her career out in Spain, in a real Madrid affiliated women's side. we will be sure to keep updates on her journey.
The girls had some great take aways from the experience on day one and its safe to say everyone had fun spending time at the estadio playing Queen of the court until the sun began to set.
