Game Sense Training – With Craig Thomas (Theory/Practical Observation Presentation)

On behalf of the West Perth Football Club & the West Perth District we are conducting an Interactive footy forum on ‘Game Sense Training’ presented by West Perth Colts Coach Craig Thomas, Wednesday July 22nd at HBF Arena.

Craig is a level 3 accredited coach, and is currently the longest serving WAFL Colts coach (5 years) and has presented Game Sense at level 2 coaching courses. Throughout the 1 hour theory/practical observation presentation Craig will discuss and cover the following:

  • What is game sense?
  • How has it evolved, Benefits of GST/How could it fit within an AFL context?
  • Components of game sense training/how to implement
  • What it looks like? Examples of game sense training activities?

On the night we will be fortunate enough to see game sense training approach implemented during the West Perth Colts training session (on ground amongst drills, participants can ask questions of players).

This is a fantastic opportunity for coaches who are looking for new training drills to keep the interest of the players throughout the long season, how to simulate drills to a game sense environment and to keep up to date with current trends and their implementation to footy. Details for the presentation are provided below.

Where: HBF Arena Auditorium, Joondalup

When: Wednesday, July 22nd

Start: 5.45pm
