Firstly, would just like to express how excited I am to be given the opportunity to come back to my Junior club and help guide the Bombers into what we see as an extremely exciting future. Moving into the 2021 season it’s time we as a group realise the true potential of our list and take this club to where it should be. How much we all put into our own self-improvement and willingness to learn over this preseason will set us up for the Journey we are about to go on.
It is with great pleasure to have the opportunity to work alongside Chris Boyes who will be coaching the Reserves and Paul Petkovich the Thirds. Over the coming weeks we will lock in our remaining Coaching Team and will make the exciting announcements.
The preseason plays a pivotal role and holds the key for us to learn the new structures and game style so attendance to trainings is going to be critical. With only four sessions prior to Christmas this is a small block to get some conditioning into the bodies before we hit the ground running in January. Every session is an important session as it’s an opportunity for you to improve. The footballs will be out from the first session so please make sure you are prepared to get plenty of touches and kms in the bank.
I will be flying back into Perth on the 7/12 and have the 2 weeks of quarantine before I can join the main group. Paul and Chris will facilitate the 3 sessions while I am not available. On the 22/12 we will hold a meet and greet, BBQ and beers directly after training to go through a small presentation on our expectations and requirements moving forward.
We now have 4 and a half weeks to get our bodies ready so I will send out a conditioning program to give you a starting point if you require one.
Pre-Christmas training dates:
Thursday December 10: Re-introduction into training (light skills & conditioning)
Tuesday December 15: combination of skills and conditioning
Thursday December 17: combination of skills and conditioning
Tuesday December 22: combination of skills and conditioning, BBQ
and Presentation with Kyle Hardingham
Training will start at 6:15pm down at Beasley Oval.
We will require everyone to make sure they have boots, runners and their own drink bottles at all sessions.
Post-Christmas we will re commence on Thursday the 14th of January.
I look forward to meeting everyone on the 22/12 for a great session on the track and then a few beers at the bar to break off before Christmas.
