A one-off session is for 50 mins at a time to be arranged. At the end of the session the coach will talk you through a pathway for your child based on their current level.

MENTORING (Juniors only): Gene is looking to mentor 2 players in season 2024. This can involve Whatsapp chat with parents and player on either Saturday or Sunday - it can also involve video review using VEO. VEO bookings can be made for an extra $50 per game and need the agreement of your coach and opposition coach on the day. The purpose of communication is to provide feedback on any extra ball work they are doing at home, their approach in games and on their strengths and weaknesses. It is to provide an extra person for support if THEY would like to have someone involved in their game. Parents could provide their own video snippets in contrast to using the professional VEO. 

Player mentor fee Mar-Oct: $350  

VEO fee (minimum 2 games): $100

VEO link to games: No extra charge
