Raiders Prepare for Camp

The Fone Zone Canberra Raiders will leave for the Riverina city of Wagga Wagga next week for their annual preseason camp. Players and coaching staff will depart for the camp next Tuesday (27th January), and will split time between Borambola Sport and Recreation centre and Wagga Wagga RAAF Base.

The five-day camp will follow the highly-successful camp conducted at Orange in the 2003 preseason.

Players will attend various training sessions both on the field and in the gym, with some tough physical sessions and different activities planned for the Wagga Wagga RAAF base.

The camp focus is on a group effort, with both players and coaches set to deliver lectures to the group on all aspects of the team, from goals and values through to tactical play.

"The preseason camp is a pivotal time for us as a group, it ties our preseason work together and gets us set up for the season proper," urged Coach Matthew Elliott.

"The camp in Orange last year helped set our whole season up," he enthused.

The camp begins at Borambala Sport and Recreation Centre, Wagga Wagga, on Tuesday 27th January, finishing on Saturday 31st January.
