Please see below descriptions for each of the programs:

Get Up and Go: A Strength and Conditioning session run before school that is designed to get the blood flowing and get everyone starting the day the right way! The session will continue to focus on foundational strength and conditioning practices to help our players stay strong and healthy, ready to return to the court as soon as possible.

Staying Healthy in Lockdown: A series of webinars/Q&A sessions with professionals from a variety of industries that have the background and knowledge to help our members take care of themselves during the lockdown. The week before each session we will reach out to our families to open the floor to any questions they might have for our guests. This week’s session will be run by Jodie Prendergast, Accredited Practicing Dietician at JPNutrition.

Class Is In Session: A classroom-style film session with our coaches where we will talk through some of the more commonly used offensive and defensive concepts in our great game. It will be a great chance for coaches and players to explore the theoretical side of the game. This week’s session is run by Frankston Blues Senior Men and 2019 NBL1 Coach of Year; Andrew Harms.

Hoops-Fit (Tuesday): Run by Kassie Boorer, these are basketball-themed circuit training sessions. Our Junior Blues athletes will have the chance to work on their ball-handling and footwork all while participating in an interval training session designed to challenge their fitness.

Building Better Athletes: An evening Strength and Conditioning session focusing on the technique of the major strength and power movements that help athletes perform at the highest levels. Recommended but not mandatory equipment: micro-band resistance band, yoga mat, foam roller, longer resistance band, light dumbbell or kettlebell, and a step or bench.

Train With Me: Some of our Senior Blues players take our Junior Blues through an individual skills session aimed at challenging our player’s fundamental skills from home. Sessions will include ball handling, footwork, some shooting (pending the weather), and defensive footwork. This week’s session will be run by Liam Doyle-Toombs.

Hoops-Fit (Sunday): Our second Hoops-Fit session of the week, run by Abby Chernishoff, is another opportunity for our Junior Blues players (and parents?) to get a sweat up and work on their skills.

More Than An Athlete: A session focused on off-court personal development and skills to assist our athletes in day to day life. This week’s session includes some basic cooking and food preparation for young adults.
