Vipers Sports Club officially released their training program this afternoon ahead of the new football season that kicks off next month.
Having introduced new members on the technical team earlier on Monday, the club president Lawrence Mulindwa stressed the need to begin serious preparations as soon as possible.
“I believe we have the best technical team now that will begin work and yield results as expected,” he said during the prayer breakfast held in Entebbe.
During the first meeting with the players today chaired by Haruna Kyobe, the head of technical duties, they met the playing staff who was formally introduced to the new Vipers head coach Abdullah Mubiru. Mubiru was excited to meet and address the players with whom he expressed his willingness and hunger to win trophies.
“I am proud to be part of this winning family. Vipers has a great team of players whom I believe when we combine efforts we shall reach greater horizons,” Mubiru said.
“We must work hard, be committed and keep time in order to excel,” he added.
The head of technical echoed the same message urging the players to be focused, disciplined, set goals and aim to achieve them.
In a related development, the head coach released the week’s training program which will start tomorrow( Wednesday) with a fitness training for one day and then body endurance tests will follow on Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Vipers will intensify their training starting next week as they prepare themselves for the FUFA Super Cup that is played between the winner of the Azam Uganda Premier league and Uganda Cup winner. It will be played at Nakivubo stadium on August 14, 2016.
Vipers’ players undergo medical and weigh in:
After releasing the week’s training program this afternoon, all the players underwent a medical checkup conducted by the team doctor Michael Lule and two other medical personnel.
The process involved BP tests or checking the blood pressure of players and taking their weight.
This exercise is going to be conducted at every start of the season and is compulsory for all Vipers players.
“We need not just good players but healthy and fit ones as well,” Lule stressed.
On squad to be used this season:
Vipers has already outlined its plan for the new season and made a few changes in their staff, however it’s vital to note that there is speculation going on in different media platforms about the different players that have been released from the team.
We therefore want to inform the public that the official squad that Vipers will use this season will be released soon.
