With very little notice, coach Mike Singletary packed up the team and bussed them to Monterey for Thursday morning practice. The team is scheduled to practice Thursday morning and afternoon at the cool and foggy confines of the Cal State-Monterey Bay Otter Soccer Complex, the San Jose Mercury News reports.
This practice is not open to the public.
Coach Singletary says he pulled the one-day move just to shake things up and avoid training camp burnout.
"You don't want it to be where the energy is great and then the next day we're flat," coach told the Mercury News. "I don't want us to do that and our team doesn't want to do that either."
So how has the moved worked out?
