“Groundwork is like having your favourite old coach in your back pocket. I am always able to mix up drills and training scenarios with the wide range of material from the book. There is no need to try and modify advanced drills as everything featured is set up perfectly for the level my team is at. The squad were able to build skills and progress with strategies smoothly thanks to the appropriately designed training activities in both the Modelling and Establishment Stages.”
Matt Hanlon - Ballarat Grammar, Senior Girls First XVIII Football Coach
“We at South Districts Football Club have fourteen Junior teams ranging from under 9's to 17's - 2 of each from 9's to 13's and sole teams through 14's to 17's. Since introducing Groundwork as a coaching tool in 2012, all coaches have commented how beneficial it has been from an educational and practical viewpoint in developing individual and team strategies. We see the Groundwork Series as an invaluable asset, which provides an all-embracing framework for all Junior coaches; therefore we have no hesitation in highly recommending it.”
Peter Bedford - South Districts Junior Football Club, Director of Coaching
