I love that video!

What would you do if I showed up to those tryouts? Ha! I would love to play at some point. How old are the oldest players?

Ha! I'd interview you, of course! The oldest players in women's football are in their 50s and beyond! I've been trying to get to a workout session myself. Not to play on the team, just to get a good workout!

OMG!! The Velocity facility is SO awesome! It is so much more than any words can describe. And, as a Breaker, we have the privilege to workout at this place for super cheap! It's so great that Velocity is sponsoring us this year!
