ROAD TO SOFIA - Goannas visit Richmond Football Club
On Monday 10th of March, 2013, the Australian Men’s Deaf Basketball Team aka The Goannas had the privilege of a guided tour of the Richmond Football Club. The Goannas are currently ranked 13th in the World and are off to the Deaflympics to be held in Sofia, Bulgaria in July/ August 2013.
We were privileged to have Tim Livingstone, Richmond’s Coaching & Development Manager to give us a tour and talk about how the Tigers prepare their weekly routines.
After spending most of the weekend at our training camp, talking and practising preparation, structure, defence, and recovery we were impressed to see that these important components of successful team sports were reinforced by our tour of the Richmond Football Club..
Deaf Basketball Australia and the Goannas would like to thank Tim Livingstone, Dale Weightman and the Richmond Football Club for taking time out of their busy schedule to make this happen. It was an experience for the Goannas to see that our Key Performance Indicators are much the same as the Richmond Football Club.
