Last Sunday December 13th
at Naracoorte over 70 participants from the four Bendigo Bank SE Academy groups met at Naracoorte for Fitness Testing and Skill training. Tyson Edwards former Adelaide Crows star and Port Adelaide assistant coach, and recently appointed Glenelg Under 18’s Head Coach conducted training drills with the assistance of our Academy coaches Andrew Nitschke, Matt Scanlon and Tony Atkins. All of the players did AFL Draft Camp type fitness testing including the 20 meter sprint, Agility, Standing and running Vertical Jumps along with the Beep Test.
Jane Woodlands-Thompson and Ian Cox from Westminster School also attended and spoke to the group with their parents about possible schooling opportunities. Glenelg Football Club is working with Westminster to establish a relationship associated with lads who are looking to relocate to Adelaide for schooling at football.
