Training

During the V Squad program players attend differnet types of training days that provide different learning experiences on and off the field.

Melbourne Camps

Our V Squad Camps (non residential), are full day training sessions held in the April and September school holidays. During these sessons we put our members in the ultimate on field  learning environment with leading AFL coaches applying technical skill development to match situations. Off field our lifestyle educators will provide information, drills and activities to improve skills and capabilities on and off the field.

The September camp brings all players to Melbourne and covers a medical and fitness assessment, a keynote address from a prominent football identity, and a two-day camp to develop specific football and life skills.

The April camp (one full day session in Melbourne plus a half day sessions in each of our regiona hubs) will build on the established foundations and further improve the knowledge base in key performance areas.

Regional Sessions

During the school holidays in January and July we will hold half day training sessions. These sessions are held at our six regional hubs (Melbourne Metro, Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, Traralgon, Shepparton) This is a great opportunity to touch base with the players to reinforce the skills taught at the camps, as well as monitor our personal development program.

Squad Sessions

In the first half of the football season we hold two small group sessions after school. Sessions are held in each of our regional training hubs (Geelong, Bendigo, Ballarat, Traralgon, and Shepparton) as well as in the four corners of Melbourne Metro (North, South, East and West Metro).

Players are geographically allocated to the closest squad and provide an opportunity to work on the fundamentals and individual craft. Groups sizes are limited to ensure targeted coaching.
