May 30th - Training with the Chinese National Team!

The Chinese National Team was in Edmonton and stopped by Capital City for some training.  Katie's group had the opportunity to train with them and receive some coaching from the Chinese Head Coach.  Our girls had a great time and were able to learn lots.  The Chinese girls were absolutely amazing to watch and were a great inspiration to our girls!
