Uncategorized Coyotes Continue OTAs with Desert Dogs Posted on June 18, 2013 0 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr (PALM SPRINGS) –The SoCal Coyotes continue their Organized Team Activities (OTAs) this Saturday, June 22, when defensive assistant coach Jeff Covington, a former Marine sergeant, lead the team in its first-ever Desert Dogs Bootcamp, built on three fundamentals of training – cardio, strength, and agility. The one-day camp will stress military-style drills and incorporate martial arts, and finish with paint-ball combat. “It’s interval training in preparation for football,” says Coach “Cov” Covington. “Bursts of intense activity, alternated with intervals of lighter activity. Then we’ll shoot live rounds at each other until only the best man is left standing.” The purpose of voluntary OTAs, stress the Coyote coaches, is for players to get in football shape while having fun and building team chemistry.
