Triple X Series (TXS)

Thats a wrap for TXS Spring '22. The final was held on a sunny May morning. The 32 Shorters were definitely not short on numbers but unfortunately too short on the scoreboard. The Diving Geese earned the champions title this season under Mae's captaincy.


We closed the season off with a gezellig lunch on the terras of the clubhouse, catered by the chefs of Sportpark de Eendracht.


Thanks to all the players and referees for participating and big shoutout to Ready Steady Eddy for his big efforts on the organising front.


Final standings:

The Diving Geese 🏆

The 32 Shorters 🥈

The Stepping Ponies🥉

Referees

Our head of referee's Barbs has been working with our potential level 1s improving their skills as referees in development. Cheers for working with her guys and girls, keep it up!


Shoutout to the players helping out the Touch NL trianing sessions by providing referee services. Great to see XXX setting a good example and expanding the sport in the Club and the country through involvement.

Training

April recap

  • 3 person drive: Eye's up, read the defence. If it's not working, slow it down, calm it down.

  • 32 short: hit your holes. Can't remember what your holes are? Ask around :D

  • 33 back door "glove". Keep trying it out in a game style environment (under pressure).
