Dragflick Newsdesk : After a great cycling team building activity ( ‘Paris target’ on the Paris-Roubaix course) at the beginning of this month, the Red Lions are continuing their sporting and mental preparation.
At the beginning of this week, 20 players flew to Chile where they started their winter internship. Three players are still missing (Vincent Vanasch, Alexander Hendrickx and Thibeau Stockbroekx), but will join the group next weekend. Tom Boon, whose partner is expecting a baby one of these days, will not be attending. Discover the full selection of national coach Michel van den Heuvel below
In addition to training on the field and fitness sessions, the aim of the internship is to further strengthen the group through workshops and team activities.
A friendly against Chile is also scheduled to test the different tactics. Then, on Monday, February 7, the Red Lions and their staff will travel to Argentina. There they will continue their intensive training in preparation for the Hockey Pro League double-header against Argentina.
These matches will take place in Cenard Buenos Aires at 11 PM Belgian time (7 PM local time) on Saturday 12 and Sunday 13 February. Each game will be preceded by the Red Panthers game against Argentina. All these matches can be seen on Playsports and VOO Sport!
