Winning Big Games!

On Sunday 20th January, Anna and Tom Rogacki from Australia will be presenting a day coaching & training session here in Auckland. The theme of the day is what it takes to win big games.

The coaches will cover what mental, physical and technical aspects it takes to win big games.

In particular the focus will be on the “power game”. Themes will include:
– Approach to training (pre-tourney preparation)
– Pre-game mental preparation
– Playing in the space we want to play in
– Concept of power position
-> How do we get it? – focus: break mark throwing, good cutting, establishing offensive threats to create space
-> What do we do with it when we get it? – focus: long throwing, getting the long pass away, timing/cutting technique
-> Making the opposition play in the space we want them to play in
– The art of man defence

This is event is being run as a fundraiser for the NZU Under 23 Worlds Campaign.

The cost to attend this day will be $40 per person. AU is supporting the event and all funds raised from entry fees will go directly to the NZU U23 Worlds Campaign.

The day will be held at Avondale College in Auckland and will run from 10am to 4pm. Lunch is not provided.
