Commerce City, Colo. - The coaching staff had anticipated that training outside might be a challenge on today, which is why they put the team through tough workouts earlier in the week. And they were correct, as was the weatherman.

Nearly four inches of snow covered the training field Thursday morning, bringing the training session indoors.

After 20 minutes of warmups in the hallway outside the locker room, the team rotated through various stations which included short ball work in one locker room, a handball-type competition in another - using no hands, timed intervals on the exercise bikes in the weight room, and the preliminary rounds of a soccer tennis tournament in the main locker room.

The final of the tournament pitted the team of Ian Joyce, Davy Armstrong, Tony Cascio, and Hendry Thomas against Tyrone Marshall, Tyson Wahl, Chris Klute, and Joseph Nane. Watch the final below:
