Bulldogs Host High Performance Squad
The newest squad of highly talented young footballers have completed a three day camp with the NRL staff at Belmore as part of the Bulldogs Youth High Performance Program.
The Bulldogs Youth High Performance Program is designed to provide talented youth players with a game specific development program covering all areas of rugby league.
This holistic approach incorporates general and position specific skill acquisition, physiological monitoring and improvement plans, mind and motivation education whilst at all times ensuring player welfare is nurtured for a healthy and balanced athlete.
Program coordinator and NSW Cup Head Coach Andrew Patmore says that the program aims to give young players who are considering a career in the NRL a taste of the Bulldogs holistic appraoch to high performance.
"We're teaching them on the ways of the club, our culture, our mind matters and also training them up in the physical and footy side of the club." Patmore told Bulldogs TV.
Youth Participant Daniel Kirk spoke highly of the facilities at Belmore, saying it was hard to believe the set up and structure that is involved with training an NRL team.
"It is a great opportunity to be accepted and to come down and train in the unbelievable facilities the Bulldogs have" Kirk said after finishing a session at Belmore.
The Bulldogs host three training camps per year at Belmore, bringing in kids from all around the country and from New Zealand for the week.
