Two days down in Inverloch!
The second day of pre-season camp was a jam-packed one for the Tigers. Kicking off with breakfast and morning meetings at the team's home base of RACV Inverloch, it was time to head to Wonthaggi Football Club for the main training session of the week.
A big thank you to Wonthaggi Power for having us. Dion Prestia was especially impressed by the condition of the surface, remarking that the oval was "like carpet"!
The Bass Coast Tiger Army showed up in spades for the open training in the morning sun, where the team was put through their paces in a lengthy session, which included a match simulation drill.
The Tigers enjoyed a delivery of rolls from a local bakery for lunch, and then it was back to the accomodation for pool recovery.
The afternoon was spent down at the beach competing in line groups once again, rotating through three activities.
The first was a stand-up paddle boarding race, which brought much hilarity to the group as they put their balance to the test. Recruit Sam Naismith, who stands at 206cm, was particularly amusing as he struggled with his higher centre of gravity.
The second station was a classic game of beach cricket, bringing out the competitive nature of everyone as they navigated the bounce of the ball on the sand.
The third beach activity was a volleyball tournament, which also got heated quickly, with assistance from coach Adem Yze who had to step in and hold the battered net upright.
It was then time to head back to the accomodation for a culture session followed by dinner, an Italian feast complete with tiramisu, much to the delight of Prestia.
Dustin Martin rejoined the group at dinner time, after being cleared of concussion following a collision at training.
A massive final day of camp awaits on Thursday, stay tuned to find out what the team gets up to!
