Vibo at work

Week number one of the pre-season preparation phase of Tonno Callipo Calabria has ended. After the first day dedicated to general medical examinations, physical parameters checks and orthopedic assessments, the work program alternated between physical sessions in the gym and swimming pool and technical exercises in the PalaValentia field.

Specifically, diversified work was carried out in several groups: in the morning in the gym and in the afternoon on the playing field. In these sessions we concentrated a lot on the fundamentals, with exercises aimed at improving individual technique. The activity in the weight room is also challenging to increase strength and elasticity.

From the beginning the team was almost complete under the orders of coach Cezar Douglas and his staff: even the Serbian Nikola Mijailovic joined the group 24 hours after the meeting. The only unavailable is still the young central Cosimo Balestra engaged in the preparation of the Under 20 European Championship (which will take place from 17 to 25 September in Abruzzo).

In this first fundamental phase to get to know each other and to begin to settle in, there were two events aimed at welcoming the team and the staff: the enthusiastic greeting of the Vibonese fans during the first training session and the welcome meeting organized by the Company in the elegant location of the Popilia Country Resort. An evening with familiar tones in which President Pippo Callipo addressed the athletes and all the collaborators inviting them to face the entire season with loyalty and a collaborative spirit.

The resumption of activities is scheduled for Tuesday 16 August after the mid-August break.
