"Today was about getting used to the building and really getting that Olympic feel," Martin told CTVOlympics.ca afterwards. "I was here about 10-15 minutes early to take in the building. Every building is different so I wanted to get a feel without playing a game."

"It was moving really well, at least four and a half feet," said Martin. "It was mostly moving late and it was pretty finicky with weight."

While the team eased into things on Sunday, they plan to get in a more structured session on Monday.

"Today was more mechanical for the guys. They were throwing well and getting comfortable," said Martin. "Tomorrow (Monday), we'll do more sweeping and game situations."
