Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre Home of the Jetstar Gold Coast Titans
The Jetstar Gold Coast Titans will call the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre home when pre-season training gets underway next month.
For Coach John Cartwright having his exciting squad training from a World Class facility like the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre is a major coup. ?The entire coaching team has been really impressed with the centre and with the level of professionalism we?ve been shown by Nick Pye and his team. Training from a venue like the Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre, along side some of the Worlds leading athletes will certainly have a very positive influence on our NRL squad.?
?The Gym fit out is almost complete and I know strength and conditioning Coach Billy Johnstone is looking forward to getting his hands on the keys and the players as we start preparations for season 2007. There will certainly be some hard work done at the Sports Super Centre. Cartwright said.
Jetstar Titans Managing Director Michael Searle is also impressed with the team?s new training base, saying ?The Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre is a superb facility that all of the Gold Coast can be proud of. It?s a place that will allow the entire squad to focus on their training in comfort, in privacy and in a professional, Olympic style venue.?
Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre Managing Director Nick Pye is looking forward to welcoming the Jetstar Titans when training commences. "This joint agreement has been in the planning stages for over a year. It is a major step for the Titans as well as the Centre. It will give the Titans arguably the best facilities available anywhere in Australia.?
?Not only this but it will be the first training base, which will allow supporters to join and train in the same facility and we are delighted to be working with the Jetstar Titans to make this their official Training base."
?The Runaway Bay Sports Super Centre is arguably the foremost private sporting facility in the world. Comprising Accommodation, Stadium, Running Track, Aquatic centre, Sports Medicine Clinic and Gymnasium. It remains committed to the encouragement of recreation and sport at all levels.
