Exciting Year Ahead! Women’s Team Recruiting NOW!

Pav – How’s the team looking for next season?

Dave – It looks like we’ll get almost two thirds of this season’s squad back which is fantastic. We’re losing a few interstate and a couple to motherhood which you can’t do much about. Obviously we’ll need to recruit.

Pav – So what are the plans for recruitment?

Dave – Well we’re going to do some pre-Christmas training – it’s a good chance to get a head start on attracting new players. I have about half a dozen potential new players that have contacted me and indicated they are interested in having a look.

Pav – What are the types of players you are looking to recruit?

Dave – It would be great to get some experienced footballers. Its always tough to attract players from other clubs to a ‘new’ team but after our first season I’d like to think there might be some players at other clubs that from the outside looking in might have liked what they saw – things like our team spirit – the professionalism and support of the Tigers Club. They might also see an opportunity for more game time. Failing that I’d love to be able to attract some athletic talent. Between myself and Jonesy I’m confident we can teach the skills and our game – its much harder to teach natural athleticism.

Pav – So those pre-season plans?

Dave – Basically its six sessions over three weeks on Mondays and Thursdays starting Monday 22 November. Each of our players will get a program to help them stay fit over Christmas and then we’ll get back into in late Jan, back two nights a week in February. We’re still an inexperienced team so pre-season will have equal focus on fitness, skill development and game sense drills. If we’re to ‘catch up’ to the rest of the competition we need to work pretty hard – but we’re putting together a program that should also be plenty of fun along the way.

Pav – Sounds like you’re looking forward to next season.

Dave – Mate, of course. My experience tells me that female players can show an unbelievable amount of improvement in their 2ND seasons. We’ll have about 14 of these – Kritta, Hannah, Sarah V, Dani, Tegan and Chrissie all finished top ten in the B&F in their first season – the scope for improvement there and amongst the rest of the group is very exciting. The new youth girls team the ‘Cubs’ is also really exciting. As a senior coach the thought of having some ready made footballers coming through that junior competition into the senior team in a few years time is also very exciting. Also looking forward to working with Rod O’Riley as the new Senior coach at the club – should be a really exciting year in 2011 for everyone involved at Tiger-land.

So if you a girl looking to give Aussie Rules a go or you are a current player at another club looking for a change please give the Tigers a call. Below are some contact details:
