Senior Women’s Preseason Camp

It was a very successful preseason camp for our Women’s Football Squad at Phillip Island. Lots of fun and games on the Saturday, and a focus on footy with a high standard intra-club game on the Sunday.

The Women’s Football Squad held their 2nd Annual Preseason Camp at Phillip Island on the weekend of the 19th and 20th of March. Just over forty players and coaches made the trip and enjoyed a really good team building experience. Saturday’s activities included a scavenger hunt, a coastal walk and a team meeting with a session facilitated by Bree Watson, before relaxing in the evening with a 90’s themed dress-up night.

The intra-club game on Sunday was at Newhaven College. Senior Coach, Scott Nicholas, was very pleased with the high standard of football, with eleven goals being scored by the two teams in a shortened match. Kat McMahon and Darcy Langford were amongst the goals.

Better players? Scott reeled off 14 names who really stood out with a combination of disposals, strong marking and consistent pressure acts. It was pleasing to see the players from the Dev. Squad integrating with the senior players and combining well in the game plan, structures and chains of possessions. Scott also remarked on how well our new recruits slotted in – well done Alex, Christina, Crystal, Emily and Lauren.

Thanks to all coaches and players for their contribution to the success of the camp. Thanks also to Ben Robertson on video duty and Karen Little for her faultless organisational efforts!
