Today i am fortunate to be joined by @MickByers. Mick currently works at the GWS giants as athletic performance specialist and in this episode we discuss Australian rules football and how he manages his athletes within the youth development system.

Having previously completed the fast track internship with the GWS giants, Mick has a wealth of knowledge to share and also gives some insights into his experience working in the AFL under the mentorship of world class professionals like David Joyce.

In this episode we discuss a range of topics, including:

  • The demands of Aussie rules football
  • How to effectively monitor training
  • How young football players should try to approach their training  
  • Issues within the profession and possible ways to correct these issues.
