FAQ

Is preseason training compulsory?

We strongly encourage all players from U13 upwards to attend all sessions offered by the Club. Preseason is a tool used by coaches and the footy operations team to assess player development and skills prior to practice matches and the official grading period. It is also an excellent opportunity to develop greater game sense during match simulation drills and activities.

For players between U8 to U12, it is important to get along to sessions to improve your skills, learn more about the game, make new friends, have some fun and build on fitness that will help you take to the field with confidence before Round 1.

We appreciate that players may already have other commitments on that conflict with preseason training. If you can't regularly attend the allocated sessions, we encourage you to contact your Coach (if known), another Coach in your year level OR Harmit Singh, our Head of Coaching, to get some drills you can do in your own time, so you get the most out of your footy experience at the Ashy Redbacks. 

If you have any other questions around preseason training, please email Harmit Singh at harmit@ashyredbacks.org.au

NOTE: Player safety is a key focus for us at the Redbacks, and as such, we apply a 'no reg, no train' policy to help ensure all members are protected by the Club's insurance.  Click here to register prior to attending pre-season training.
