Today’s Players Update: Deprece Washington 2017-1

 

 

I’m back in Copenhagen, my second city and I have loved every minute of it.

Even though I have already spend 2 years here before, I have taken every chance I can get to explore the city with my Canadian teammates.

I can’t count how many times I’ve seen the castles and Nyhavn harbor but, to me, it will never get old. My love for Danish pastries and coffee will never get old either but I’ve promised myself to keep the pastry part to a limit, no promises on coffee.

I’ve also tried to fill my Canadian teammates in on Danish language. I am no expert by any means but I can at least try to explain to them how some letters sound silent to us and how Danes say that you have the correct word pronunciation when it sounds like there is a potato in the back of your throat. As soon as I can I plan to enroll in Danish classes, maybe I’ll be some kind of expert by the end of the season.

This weekend is our last preseason weekend of the year. I have only been here a month but I am so ready to start playing our regular season games. I’m sure this is even truer for my teammates; the team has spent the last 2 months practicing and lifting. Now that we are closer to actually competing, we just started a new lifting program that works more on speed and explosiveness instead of the heavy lifting we had been doing. We also have a preseason tournament this weekend to help us finish up some last minute details. It’s so nice to be getting into the swing of things; once the matches start, it feels like the season never slows down. Our first match is on October 7th and we can’t wait to put all this preseason work to the test.

GO BRØNDBY!!!
