The snow and the cold of this week have hit a blow to the programs of the youth formations of the San Marino Academy. Commitments all postponed, to start (in order of time) from the competitions of the two Under 10 teams, the 1 Academy and the 2 Academy, which on Wednesday should have been on the field respectively against Folgore Cosmos 2 and against Tre Penne La Fiorita 1.
Also jumped the commitment of the Giovanissime, who would have had to face Vis Pesaro at home; the Beginners, on the other hand, should have hosted Riccione on Saturday afternoon.

Saturday was also the day of the spring training, expected from the visit of the San Paolo but forced to undergo the second consecutive postponement after that of last week, when it should have been on the field of Castelvecchio.
No weekly appointment even for the small players of the Under 8, whose meeting, which was originally scheduled for Saturday morning, has been moved to a date to be allocated.
Apart from the bad weather, the First Team would have been stopped this weekend, since the Serie B championship program has been suspended due to the commitment of the Italian national team in the Cyprus Cup.

The girls of Fabio Baschetti, returning from the internal draw with Pordenone, will return to the field on Thursday 8 March at the San Marino Stadium. It will not be an official commitment, but a friendly international with the Americans of Virginia Commonwealth University, training in the Atlantic 10 university championship and that from 3 to 10 March will be involved in an Italian tour during spring break, the classic spring break of American school activities.
For the girls of Baschetti will be an opportunity to compete with a different kick than the one they are accustomed to, and also to carry out a probative test pending the next championship engagement, namely the internal race with the Südtirol.

"Since this weekend we will stop, it is a good opportunity not to lose the game pace" - the opinion of Mr. Baschetti - "We hope that next week the weather conditions are better, so you can play this friendly in the best of ways. I do not know our opponents well, but I can imagine that they are a physical team. We will have to keep the athletic condition high, also because next Sunday we will have another very delicate challenge. "

Corrado Selva, Head of the Women's Sector of the FSGC, tells how this initiative was born: "We were contacted by Fabio Bellenghi, who works for Adriasport and acted as an intermediary between us and the US team. The company he works for has contacts with American universities and various agencies outside of Italy and often organizes international tournaments, such as the San Marino Cup. Before playing against us, this American team will have two other friendlies, both with Serie A teams: on Monday they will play with Mozzanica and on Wednesday with Brescia. "

An opportunity that, considering the contingencies, could not be captured on the fly. "At this time we have a stop" - continues Selva - "and then we immediately accepted this offer. We decided to play the game at the stadium because the girls almost never play it, and so it will be a reason for satisfaction but also a test for them, since the size of the pitch is bigger than the ones they are used to. . I hope everything goes well and is a good experience for everyone. "
