After six months of offseason, the Western New York Flash begins its quest for the 2015 National Women’s Soccer League title on Monday morning when the club starts preseason.
The Flash will continue to train out of Sahlen Sports Park, a 200,000 sq. ft. multi-sport indoor complex located just south of Buffalo in Elma, NY.
“After a long but productive offseason, I'm excited to start working with everyone on Monday,” said Flash general manager and head coach Aaran Lines. “With many new personalities, preseason is obviously important for the players to learn to gel together. But we are confident in the character of this group and that the players will embrace every minute of every session as we look to prepare for our first games.”
The Flash had an active offseason, reshaping the roster after a disappointing 2014 season that saw the club miss out on the postseason for the first time in franchise history. More notably, however, Lines and Flash technical director Charlie Naimo worked to build a lineup that would withstand impacts of the 2015 FIFA Women’s World Cup, as many internationals are expected to miss a substantial portion of the upcoming season due to national team duty.
Media members who wish to attend training session or request interviews are asked to contact Communications & Marketing Manager Jackie Maynard at email@example.com.
