    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 Are they both commonly accepted or is "practice" a bit outdated?

    Examples:
    On Saturdays I go to fooball training
    On Saturdays I go to fooball practice


    Thanks a lot,
    Emma

    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.
