One on One with Brades

One on one with Brades

 

With the frustration of there not being any football as a result of the COVID-19 Virus and the social distancing provisions limiting personal exercise to two people, we have all tried to find a way to get our ‘footy (or netball) fix’.  Filling this void and remaining socially responsible hasn’t been an easy task for many of us ‘footy nuts’.  The restrictions put in place have not deterred our players from lawfully exercising their minds and bodies by: training on their own, setting up home gymnasiums, completing solid running sessions with a teammate and enthusiastically completing the challenges and programs forwarded by our coaching staff.

 

I am very fortunate in that my ‘footy fix’ has been both enjoyable and rewarding and has come from eager players who have opted for some ‘one on one’ coaching in addition to their own individual training regimens.  The ‘one on one’ sessions have consisted of a running program, kicking and recovery drills and plenty of ground balls with a focus on ‘having fun’.  It has been an absolute pleasure to work ‘one on one’ with quality young men of the likes of Jaedyn Thomson, Hayden Horscroft, Josh McCarthy, Cody Bowman, Myles Jamieson, Harry Waterfall, Luke Spicer, Matty Bennetts, Maxi Scott, Jack Loorham, Joel Wisken and Riley Krog these past few weeks.  The work ethic and enthusiasm shown by these boys along with their desire to improve and be the best they can be has been inspiring and indicative as to where we have been as a group with our preparation for the 2020 season.

 

The endeavour of our players and the people within our club since the COVID-19 restrictions have been galvanising and have shown the value that sport and sporting clubs play in our lives.  The tireless efforts of our players,  our committee, our volunteers and our supporters have continued to show that we are more than just a club....we are a ‘community’.”

Brades song lyrics 

Give Joely a Chance

 

Everybody’s talking about Determination, Concentration, Penetration, Application, Motivation, Tingleation…this ‘ation’, that ‘ation’, Isolation, Isolation.

All we are saying is give Joely a chance.  All we are saying is give Joely a chance.

C’mon……Everybody’s talking about:

Eb McDermott what a shooter;

Lesli Wilton what a jokester;

Fi White what a boozer;

El Horrobin what a gear loser;

Rachel Gallagher on a bender;

Georgia Cox what a partier.

All we are saying is give Joely a chance.  All we are saying is give Joely a chance.

Let me tell you now…..Everybody’s talking about:

Leo Cook what a talker;

Glenn Barclay what a guzzler

Megan Wisken what a trooper;

Sammy Field what a future;

Daniel Briggs what a shout misser;

Julie Saunders what a treasure….should’ve been club person of the year!!

All we are saying is give Joely a chance.  All we are saying is give Joely a chance.

Everybody’s talking about:

Jarrod Fisk and his last kiss;

Ethan Smith and the goals he miss;

Steve Hamill and his tingle;

Luke Spicer and his bingle;

Cooper Wisken and his guns;

Crib Point footy/netball club so much fun.

All we are saying is give Joely a chance.  All we are saying is give Joely a chance.
