Sunday, October 15 marked the first full practice of the year. It was open to Fast Break Club members, who turned out in force. Some faithful FBCers staffed tables to pass out official FBC shirts and accessories, and to sign up new recruits. The rest of us got our first look at the 2006-2007 team, including the fabulous four freshmen. The team did some warmups, drilled on some plays, and engaged in spirited scrimmages. Tara introduced this year's coaches and support staff, and then said a few words about each of the fourteen members of this year's squad. Bring on the season!

Spring Practice

By Don Anderson

A change in NCAA rules for 2005-2006 allowed the Stanford Women to hold spring practices during April and May, and I was a fly on the wall for many of them. For everyone starved for news during the current drought leading up to 2006-2007, I offer the following in retrospect.

People think the daily practices are all business. Sometimes, though, they're actually a barrel of laughs. Especially when Tara is on the road recruiting.........

Strength workouts were REALLY relaxed
with Tara out of town.

Some players took the opportunity to

practice their modeling moves.

Dribbling with the feet was allowed.

Action on the floor was intense, but where's
the basketball?

Coaches demonstrated the fine points of the game.

Oops. Tara's back......
