Boronia appoints High Performance Manager

As part Boronia Hawks commitment to talent development, we are very excited to announce the appointment of Mitchell Wright as our High Performance Manager.

Mitch is a practicing Exercise Physiologist at Inspiro in Lilydale and will have the key responsibility of implementing the Club’s investment in the Playertek GPS Player Tracking System.

Club Chairman, Scott Nicholas, and Club Football Director, Ash Johnston, welcome former team mate Mitchell Wright back to Boronia as our High Performance Manager.

Boronia’s Football Director, Ash Johnston, said that Mitch is a perfect fit to manage this program that will take the Club to the leading edge of performance analysis in local football.  The use of this software will allow the Club’s Football Department to better analyse and manage our young playing group and shows the Club’s strong commitment to developing the in-house talent coming through our junior pathways.

Mitch played over 200 games with Boronia Hawks through juniors and seniors, starting at Boronia Auskick many years ago with current players Luke Leeson, Nathan Allen and Scott Nicholas.  He was a fast and clever wingman, with terrific skills and a great leap.  Mitch recently played in Olinda-Ferny Creek’s 2017 premiership.

The Club is absolutely delighted to welcome Mitch and his family back to Boronia.
