This week our U15 and U16 players were joined by former CBJFC champions who have gone on to play at elite levels, and who generously gave up their time to share their experiences and insights with the Juniors. Nick Edwards, Theo Thompson and Kade Answerth played with the Bears through all junior age groups, starting together in the U9s.
After a fast-paced drills session, players enjoyed a hot meal while their special guests answered plenty of questions. Key points shared by Nick, Theo and Kade included:
The evening was organised by CBJFC Coaching Coordinator Gary Birrell, who coached the boys to several premierships with the Bears. Players, parents and coaching staff sincerely appreciate the time and effort everyone made to attend, and look forward to seeing our current CBJFC teams experience the benefits of playing together through all levels of junior football.
