CONCENTRATION WARM UP DRILL #2

I’ve stolen this drill from Glenn Strachan whois involved with the Northern Bullants in the VFL as a player (I think?) who I did some private sector work with late last year.

GAME INTELLIGENCE PART 1

This series of posts was inspired by an article I read just yesterday but is one of the best I’ve read in recent times as far as putting a lot of tactical and technical co-active elements together. It was originally a soccer based piece but I’ve altered it to suit Aussie Rules. This series will...
