Players from Canberra, Lithgow, Strathfield, Epping, Toronto and Newcastle met at Strathfield for a workshop at which they looked at ways to improve their performance in competitive gateball.
The morning was spent looking at techniques that players could employ to increase the effectiveness of their practice and exploring strategic understandings necessary for higher level play
In the afternoon players used the more advanced skills card available as a download on this website under About Gateball: Tips, Strategy and Coaching . Pairs of players kept a record of where they were unable to complete a succession of skills. This enabled them to focus on areas they need to work at.
The day was supported through CNSW’s Players Pathway to Excellence Program (PPEP). Through this program players are provided with support to enable them to improve their skills and be more successful in competition.
