Junior Representative Camp
University of Western Sydney, Bankstown Campus
2nd/3rd December 2017
The Junior Representative camp held at UWS Bankstown this passed weekend was an outstanding success.
The New South Wales Rugby League Referees Association viewed this significant investment as an opportunity to further develop and engage young referees who are the future. Exposing the group to various aspects of what is required to reach goals and dreams is invaluable considering the demands and commitment needed to succeed.
Gone are the days of one training night a week. Young referees aspiring to become graded and then make NRL level have to focus on fitness levels, self evaluation and reviews similar to colleagues in higher grades. The feedback has been glowing re the exposure to training, theory, skills, nutrition and expectations to reach personal goals and to be the best you can be.
To the entire group we hope you enjoyed the weekend and found benefit for your personal development.
Sincere thanks for NSWRL’s Stuart Raper, Referees High Performance Manager for working with us to make the camp happen.
Congratulations and thanks to NSWRL’s Community Football Referees Development Officer – Gavin Badger for presiding over the weekend and to Peter Burke – High Performance Conditioning Coach for his dedication and passion to see people reach their physical peak and his talent for developing camaraderie.
