HALF GROUND + MID BOX GAME

This is just a little twist on a basic half ground game with 2 even teams. Usually it works like basketball and bring the ball out of defense to the middle of the ground then you play transittion offense to get it back into the forward 50 and score. Nothing extra ground breaking for this...

THE INNER GAME JOURNAL – STEFAN MAUK

I’ve been posting a fair bit on the psychological aspect of performance lately and 1 thing I say a lot is that don’t just think thoughts, but write them down to make them “real”. I can almost guarantee that by writing it down, which obviously takes way longer to do then to simply think it,...

SKILL DEVELOPMENT – DAN ABRAHAMS

Skill development at the top of all sport pyramids and footy is no different.

HOW DO MELBOURNE DO IT?

2 weekends ago after Melbourne easily dispatched of the Western Bulldogs, Christian Petraka was very honest in what they wanted to do in a post game interview with Channel 7: The biggest points I noted were: 1 – “…we wanted to trust the tackler in 1v2’s” meaning let’s not have other players rush in to...
