The first thing was to be welcomed by the president of the club, Manuel de León, who thanked them for accepting the proposal and asked them for responsibility, not only in the sporting aspect but in the sanitary one. Later, the mayor of San Bartolomé, Alexis Tejera, who made an appearance at the start of the preseason, commented to the girls that they are the pride of the people and the team of the municipality that is higher in sports, thanking them for the good work when it comes to spreading ‘San Bartolomé’ throughout Spain. There was also the Councilor for Sports of San Bartolomé, Isidro Pérez, who highlighted the sacrifice of the club to be able to compete year after year in the national category and that of the players, to put aside their free time and dedicate it to CB Zonzamas.
Who was of few words, in principle, was the technician, Juan Rivera, who welcomed them and invited them to start training. Already with all the players in the center of the field, prior to the first training, the mister told them the rules, the way to play, reminded them of the sanitary measures and encouraged them to feel like part of the CB Zonzamas family.

After the harangue, At 8:00 p.m. the first training session of the preseason started with some career, many games without the ball and a lot of physical exercise. Then it was time to touch the ball to do pass and speed work, to finish, after 2 hours of training, with shots on goal to put the goalkeepers into practice and start working the shoulders.
This Tuesday they will return to training to prepare for the games of the Silver Honor Division 2020/2021, but before they will have to face the Canary Islands Cup in the first two weekends of September, hoping to arrive physically well and with all the players already on the island.
