Fitness the priority for Demons
AFTER suffering injury issues last season, the Waroona Demons reserves are fit and raring to bounce back for 2018.
Coach Marty Scott said after a relatively quiet pre-season the side was coming together well for the start of the season.
Scott said training had focussed on building fitness and numbers were growing now the season had begun.
“A lot of it is running, kicking and building up fitness,” he said. “All the basics really. “Once we build up our fitness base, we’ll have a decent side.”
While the side was plagued with injuries last year, which made it difficult to get the best team on the field, Scott said this year was shaping up well and they could make it through to the finals.
In round one, Waroona faced off against Mandurah and while the opposition took the match, Scott said the team had made a good start.
“All in all I was pretty happy with the effort,” he said.
Along with the rest of the club, Scott said there were a number of young players starting this season.
“We’ve got a few young guys so we’re going to build up that next generation of core group,” he said.
