Play­ers im­press at camp

The Weekly Advertiser Horsham - - Sport -

Vol­ley­ball Horsham Academy ath­letes ex­pe­ri­enced qual­ity coach­ing as part of a camp at Mil­dura.

For­mer Aus­tralian youth coach Alan Has­sell and SASI ath­lete Steve Pur­cell took the ath­letes through their paces through­out the week­end, with all ath­letes learn­ing plenty as they build up for sea­son 2017.

The Mil­dura camp is a good way of get­ting the ath­letes out of their com­fort zone and gives them an ex­pe­ri­ence they wouldn’t oth­er­wise re­ceive.

The ath­letes were pushed hard on Satur­day in dif­fi­cult con­di­tions due to the heat.

They then moved on to team-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties on Sun­day in con­trast­ing con­di­tions.

Young ath­letes in­clud­ing Cleo Baker and Hamish Sel­lens ex­celled dur­ing the week­end, while ex­pe­ri­enced ath­letes Eadie Garth-lind­say and Will Bren­nan showed lead­er­ship. The op­por­tu­nity to re­ceive valu­able match play against Mil­dura coun­ter­parts was also a high­light.

The Mil­dura ath­letes wanted a chance to get back at the Horsham ath­letes af­ter be­ing beaten dur­ing a Horsham tour­na­ment.

There has been good rivalry be­tween both acad­e­mies and this next group is car­ry­ing on the tra­di­tion.

Last chance

Team num­bers are build­ing nicely for the com­ing sum­mer sea­son of vol­ley­ball in Horsham.
