MLS issued a moratorium on training through the weekend to try and hold off the spread of coronavirus, but that has been extended through the working week, too, as teams like the San Jose Earthquakes won’t be able to train together through Friday. Given the league is on a 30-day break, I wouldn’t expect training to necessarily start back up at the weekend, either, but if the spread of coronavirus is slowed, I suppose it could happen.
More news around the Quakes:
- TomThom has challenge to players: Tommy Thompson is the king of skillz and the Quakes player is unsurprisingly trying to keep spirits up, with his “Stay at Home” skills challenge a great idea. As someone who has a tiny backyard but does like to do footwork drills, this is great for the youths and olds alike.
Stay at home challenge! I’m sure there are a lot of youth soccer players out there not able to practice like they would normally. Here are some fun skills I used to work on at home. Send me videos once you get them down and I’ll share them. Stay positive and get to practicing! pic.twitter.com/vC32rxfmxA— Tommy Thompson (@tomthom11) March 15, 2020
