Getsome Athletics is excited to return to Cairns bringing new drills, new skills and a TON of strategy to work on!!|
This time armed with stellar duo of coaches, Shorty Ounce and Carmen Getsome you will have a chance to learn from some of the best!!
This clinic will spend a brief time saturday working on advanced basic skills including new ways to stop, how to go from pack speed to jammer destruction speed and some rad lateral agility skills.
We will help you develop the confidence to use a backwards friend to dominate a pack and the jammer skills to duck, dive and dip around those blockers!
We will spend lots of time going over scrimmage scenarios and learning how to use your brains to become the most powerful team on the track.
Bring a snack, a water bottle, black and white scrimmage jerseys, a smile and some energy!!! It going to be a blast!!!
