Richmond AFLW is ready to attack the second half of the pre-season after a successful camp on the Mornington Peninsula last weekend. 

The Tigers put in a solid session at Frankston's Skybus Stadium, coupled with some time connecting with one another throughout the course of the camp.

Midfielder Kate Dempsey said the group was "humming along really nicely" ahead of Round 1 late next month. 

"It's come around really quick," Dempsey said.

"We're ready to go and the girls have cracked in.

"We're a very no-fuss group, we just get on with it and get the job done."

Skybus Stadium is familiar territory for the Tigers, with it being the location of their dominant Round 1 victory over St Kilda last season. 

Preparations have now ramped up for the team, with match simulation a focal point of the camp.

"That's something we've done a lot more of this pre-season, real footy focus," Dempsey said.

"It was a really solid session...probably one of our biggest sessions for the year.

"We were happy with how that went."

For draftee Eilish Sheerin, the camp was the perfect opportunity to spend some quality time with her new teammates.

"We've started a bit later into the pre-season, so having that time to really gel with the girls is really important," Sheerin said.

"Then also, to get on the track as much as possible, get as many touches in, as many kicks in, and start to really pick up that ethos of the team and understand the structures and the way we want to play this season.

"So, having that intense time together over a couple of days of camp is really helpful for putting yourself into that mindset, as someone who's coming into a new environment... To really being able to hit the ground running."
