Murray Bushangers Commence 2015 Pre-Season
The Murray Bushrangers TAC CUP squad will commence their 2015 campaign this Sunday 16 November at the Wangaratta Sports Development Centre. Over 100 players from across the region will participate in the pre-season as the club prepares for what promises to be a very tough TAC CUP competition in 2015.
Murray Bushrangers High Performance Manager Matt Glossop has developed the pre-season program and is looking forward to the first session. “It’s great to catch up with the players and the coaches and set some early standards for 2015. “We’ll go through a battery of tests to build a solid athletic profile on each of players and compare them with our benchmarks.”
Glossop stressed the professionalism required to participate in the pre-season program “It will be interesting to see how the returning boys present, while we give them time to get away from football; we certainly expect that they arrive in a satisfactory condition”. “The program they were given over the off-season was a little different; we backed off the running loads and used the opportunity to work on their strength base along with some cross-training for variety”.
“There will be lots of players we haven’t seen before and history tells us there will be some great raw, athletic potential there to work with. It’s only the first day, but it’s still an opportunity for them to put their hand up and show us they can compete at TAC Cup level”
The Bushrangers are pleased to announce a partnership with Albury Sports Science Clinic who will assist with the clubs fitness testing throughout the season. Glossop was excited by the relationship “They are a new company who are bringing a sports science presence to the Border area”
“For us, it’s terrific that our boys get access to their state of the art equipment where we can measure not only their performance output, but also look at how they move in athletic situations”.
Training will commence at 9.00am at the Wangaratta Sports Development Centre with testing taking place at the Wangaratta Sports & Aquatic Centre.
