All you need to know
Training sessions usually starts 4-5 weeks before the season commences. Most will be held at Steve Chisholm Oval (Blackman Park B3/4) or ELS Hall on a Wednesday , Thursday or Friday afternoon (depending on your team or age group).
For the 2022 season, pre-season training will commence in early February. The sessions start in the late afternoon, with the exact time determined by each team. They consist of some craftwork and general warm up. Then each age group will be broken up and trained by their respective coaching team.
The sessions usually last around 1-1.5 hours.
