Hi everybody! :)
I was wondering, are the terms practice and training used with the same frequence in Br.English?
Are they interchangeable? Are they both commonly accepted or is "practice" a bit outdated?

On Saturdays I go to fooball training

    I think we had a thread about this before, did you search?

    I am no expert in these matters but I would not be surprised to hear both of these. Training might imply a bit more intensity or maybe even doing things not directly involving the ball, such as core-stability work to improve a player's overall performance.
