    Squad Training

    We had our final pre-season training session with Lesley at Playsport today.

    Both squads spent time on the range and the golf course with the emphasis being on team work. With only a few weeks until the start of the season we were also reminded of various techniques to use to allow us to practice effectively.

    Thank you to Lesley for her advice and guidance over the last 5 months and to Playsport for their continued support of our Squads.
