Mentoring (Juniors only): Gene is looking to mentor 2-3 players in season 2023. Initially it involves 2 x 1 on 1 sessions of 45 minutes. It can then 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 $65 and need the agreement of your coach and opposition coach on the day. The purpose of mentor 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.
Mentoring can only be provided if the player themselves are looking for that extra support and that extra bit of feedback and/or encouragement. Please email for quote noting what you would be interested in from below:
Player mentor fee Mar-Oct: $POA (includes 15% discount on any during Term sessions). The fee is payable over 2 payments so families have a chance to proceed or withdraw from the program from June onwards.
VEO fee ( 2 games): $POA (arrive, set up, record)
VEO link to watch games: No extra charge for family
VEO link is not to be shared. Teammates can email for access @$10. Your coach can acess the link, the opposition coach can if they contact the academy.
Access to VR headset during Term at Karinya $40 for 50 mins (see below)
VR is one way to work on scanning and decision making when not able to practice in a game environment.
