Kicking off the week right


Our practice today included some good ol’ calisthenics, fun scrimmaging, and ended with Kate’s warm-down yoga session (free and open to the public). Excitement is building for our season kick-off this Friday at Foothills Tasting Room. Come meet the team, learn about how we support Irish sports and culture in the triad, talk yoga with Kate, listen to traditional Irish music, and more. It promises to be a good “bit of craic” with those who know a wee bit more about how to celebrate St. Paddy’s Day!
