Over the six days of camp, the players invested nearly four hours in the classroom and seven hours of gym time every day working on their approach and skillset towards to game under the direction of Tyler Coston (Director of Player Development). Powell would wake up at 8 a.m. to begin her morning routine and wouldn’t leave the last gym session until 11 p.m.

Tucker Herzberg, a certified strength and conditioning specialist and sports performance coach, assessed her athleticism and gave her exercises specific to her body that will strengthen her weaknesses.
