WHAT DOES A TYPICAL COLLEGE GAME DAY LOOK LIKE?
Gameday was always the best day of the week for our team. In training, we spent the week working towards it and analyzing opponents so that we could go into each game fit and confident. Our home game schedule for an early afternoon game looked something like this:
9:00: Get up in my dorm and breakfast in the Dining Hall.
10:00 – 12:00: Homework, call parents and friends from home, meet friends for coffee and a walk, TV, etc.
12:00: Pregame Meal with the entire team in the Dining Hall at Harvard Business School.
12:45 – 14:00: Final opponent analysis and game presentation by coaches in the booth, prehab, taping, music & lots of dancing in the booth
14:15 – 15:00: Warm-Up
15:00 – 17:00: Match
17:30 – 18:30: Postgame Meal together – either catering if we have one or a tailgate with home cooked meals organized by local parents
From 19:00: Free time, second dinner in the Dining Hall with friends, party with your own team and/or mixer with other sports teams
