We had the pleasure of hosting some of the best young players in the country when the current and former WSW boys Mario Shabow, Abraham Majok, Laim Youlley and Keanu Baccus working on perfecting their game in the off season as they prepared for the upcoming season in the A-League.
Newcastle Jets Duo Steven Ugarkovic & Mario Shabow worked together alongside our Head Coach Stephen Neligan only a few weeks after the A-League grand final which featured the Jets. After a great season both players they were still hungry as ever to continue developing into great footballers.
Mario has since moved onto the Central Coast Mariners, despite all of Newcastle's efforst to retain one of the best young talents in Australia.
We had the pleasure of working with Roly Bonevacia during his off season as he prepares for a big season ahead in the Red and Black. Stephen Neligan put Roly through all the appropriate drills to help enhance his game.
Newcastle Jets Midfielder Steven Ugarkovic took no time off after the Grand Final, as soon as he was on off season with the Newcastle Jets he started his off season training at the First Phase Factory with Stephen Neligan.
Stephen designed a position specific program to enhance passing and scanning as well as other drills to further improve the already talented Ugarkovic. An incredible player with great determination and drive to become great (also unbelievably fit, even for a pro).
Only days after the season was over and Steven Lustica commenced his off season, Steven was in the factory working 3 times a week with Head Coach Stephen Neligan before departing for Croatia. Sad news is Steven left the Wanderers but his work ethnic, abilities and unbelievable fitness meant he would be back in Croatia playing in top flight football for NK Inter Zaprešić.
We had the pleasure of helping Keanu Baccus during his off season preparation for the up coming A-League season. Keanu worked with our head coach Stephen Neligan on improving specific parts of his game in several position specific drills designed by Stephen to improve player development. Keanu was so pleased with the progress and Stephens coaching, he has now commenced coaching in the factory under Stephen Neligans guidance.
Recently we have updated our Futsal Court to give you that feeling of a street game but with a great surface and wicked boxed nets (who doesn't like putting the ball into the back of boxed nets). The great news about our court is that, its the cheapest court hire in Sydney. You can have the court for $50 per hour, that's right if you are a group of 10 mates that's $5 each.
