Compete Client Christian Ramirez Could Get a Shot at the USMNT

While Bruce Arena called up a strong roster for the World Cup qualifiers and friendlies this month, there is even more talent that didn’t make it. In most cases, the best players left off the USMNT roster are less experienced options who will likely get a chance at the CONCACAF Gold Cup in July. If they do well then, there’s a very real chance they will be part of World Cup qualifying in September and then into next year's tournament in Russia.

Here is a look at the players who aren’t on the USMNT roster now, but could break through later this year as the World Cup gets closer Click here for the full article.


How to Recover from a Long Hockey Season

The hockey season can be a grind. Most youth players start practicing in August and finish games in March or April. That’s 8-9 months of 2-3 practices a week and anywhere from 25-60 or more games, not to mention any private lessons and dryland. This can take a huge toll on an athlete both physically and mentally.
