The training is set up differently for each coach. They will let you know the times you will have your training for the semester and when your competitions are. You will have practice 6 days out of the week and up to 20 hours of week of training. This includes the practices, video, strength & conditioning and many more.
The season starts in the fall from August to until November and it can go until December if you make it to the playoffs. In the spring semester most teams have some friendly games against other teams.
The coaches are certified coaches and are full-time coaches that are paid, by the university so they are there for the athletes to make them better.
