We are just entering the commencement of our Swords campaign and have our trials set for this Saturday the 30th of May. We have asked each club to nominate up to 8 players for each age category and will run a north vs south origin set up. At the moment we have 48 students attending the 15s trial and 47 attending the 17s trial. The head coaches are Joe Rau 15s and Jim Larkin 17s.
There is a high performance camp already planned and various different training initiatives which will involve squad training, weight training, strength & conditioning, tactical play, video analysis and nutrition. There will be targets set and there is a real buzz around the representative season ahead of us.
Congratulations to the list of players who have been selected to trial for the Northern Swords 15s and 17s teams, this weekend at Lindvart Park, Kaikohe. Coach for 15s is Joe Rau. Coach for 17s is Jim Larkin. Support staff for these teams will be announced at a later date.
