After a successful club campaign in 2014 which yielded 3 premierships and grand final & preliminary final appearances we look forward to the 2015 season with great anticipation. As all successful seasons go, they start with a successful preseason.
To our sponsors & supporters, thank you for your continued support. Rest assured our group of coaches will dedicate the time & effort to develop our entire playing group from A grade to E grade, both on and off the field. We are in the fortunate position where our club is as strong as it’s been and we are driven to turn this into on-field success while developing our players for the greater walks in life.
To the players, I won’t lie to you, there will be strength & conditioning elements to preseason training! But I will guarantee you, if you’re at session 1 and put the effort in to attend every session thereafter you will see improvement each day and come round 1 you will be prepared to start season 2015 in the best condition possible. This will give you a great base for the season ahead. Conditioning is not something that can be picked up in a 3 or 4 week period. Don’t expect to start training in February and be ready to play high level football in April. In short, you will get out of preseason what you want to get out of it. And we will take note of that.
The bulk of preseason training will involve developing and training our game plan. Full ground exercises, game style and competitive training will be a feature. This is another reason to be there from day 1.
Preseason training will begin 6pm Monday, December 1st at Park 9. There will be 9 sessions before a break for Christmas. After a 2 week break we will resume training at Park 15 on Wednesday, January 7th.
If you have aspirations to play A grade football next season or you want to play at your highest level possible we expect to see you December 1st.
Finally, if any players need information/feedback/advice or just a general chat about the upcoming training schedule and/or the 2015 season please don’t hesitate to contact me on 0402 819 022.
I can’t wait to get the season started! See you in 4 weeks Reds.
Tom Martin – Senior Coach
