BALTIMORE — They can't practice together, but the Baltimore Union Soccer Club Girls are still working on their moves.

Jamie Flynn is the coach for the girls team of Baltimore Union Soccer Club, based in Baltimore County in the Perry Hall/White Marsh area.

Normally, they compete in tournaments and leagues around the region but the Coronavirus has this team working on their soccer moves, solo, almost. The girls put together a video, using a coveted roll of toilet paper, to show off their soccer skills.

Their club director has been sending training videos to all club players in order to keep them active.

Local players keep up on their soccer skills using TPIn an email coach Jamie said, "I wanted to challenge my team with a juggling contest, but make it more 'unique', so I challenged them to video themselves juggling with a roll toilet paper. This task applies the same basic skills that we have been encouraging the players to work on, but now adds a very unique object that requires more concentration to play with. My goal of this video was to first and foremost, allow the girls to have some fun with a new challenge and additionally show the girls that by sticking together as a team, regardless of where we are located, we can accomplish anything with each others support."
