Tuesday 2ndJuly sees our preseason pitch sessions begin ahead of our season in AIL 1B. Players have been working hard with our S&C coach Calum Russell, during the month of June to physically prepare for the work ahead.
Our preseason program will run on Tuesday and Thursday evenings throughout the months of July and August, starting at 7.30pm and finishing at 9.00pm. These sessions will focus on individual and team-based skill elements as well as bedding in attacking and defensive principles. Sessions will be sharp and intense, we want our teams to play with tempo and we will aim to replicate this in training sessions.
We encourage all senior players to attend as we prepare for the campaign ahead, additionally we hope to see our players stepping up from Youth Level, players from Banbridge Academy and other local players attending preseason. This is a vital time for young players to develop, and preseason aids with the transition between youth and senior rugby.
We are looking forward also to introducing our new signings in the weeks ahead as they begin to work with us.
The coaches can’t wait to get started and begin working towards our goals this season alongside our players, it’s sure to be an exciting number of months ahead!
