Last week 30 Rugby League Academy students participated in a 2 day camp at Lady Northcote Recreation Centre in Rowsley, Victoria. The aim of the camp was to challenge each and every student-athlete physically, mentally and emotionally as well as get to know each other in greater depth. The group participated in many fun and challenging activities that required teamwork and trust as well as participating in many exhausting activities such as a 2 hour mountain bike ride and The ‘Red Flag’ session conducted by Mr Marshall. We also had 2 guest speakers (Andrew Blowers -Melbourne Storm life coach and Tia Suemai – Walking Out program) who delivered an evening session on “Personal Strengths”.
Throughout the camp the squad continuously impressed us with their ability to work together as a team and push themselves beyond their limits. This we believe will be the platform for a successful year in both the classroom and on the training and sporting field.
