Advanced Session

The Advanced squad programme is based on a 1 hour  long session designed to further develop the athlete’s understanding of the principles of the game. Sessions continue to have a strong emphasis on the fundamentals but now gradually start focusing on advancing the technical and tactical knowledge of the players too. This includes incorporating things such as special game like situations, power play and the defence philosophy.

 

The advanced squad sessions are aimed at athletes who are ready to be challenged and are keen to start thinking of competing at a local level. The club coaches collaboratively work together to develop their strengths focusing not just on the individual play now, but also on the team play.

Requirements:
  • Able to swim 400 meters frontcrawl 
  • Have strong water treading skill
  • Throw and catch the ball with one hand several times
