Panthers in the 2020 Country Talent Program
Panther Representatives at the SANFL Under-16 Country Trail.
In conjunction with the SANFL Clubs, a squad of approximately 32 Under-16 players were invited to participate in one camp and a one day session, to train and play a game with and against talented peers.
Particular emphasis was placed on improving skill techniques and being able to demonstrate these techniques in pressure situations.
Players took part in physiological and skill testing that will allow them to compare their performance against other elite country players.
It is hoped that this program will be successful in allowing the individual player to develop those motor and cognitive skills that are so essential in progressing along the elite pathway to senior ranks.
On Sunday morning the match was played at Thebarton Oval, where three metro players from each SANFL club were also included.
More Metro players will be exposed to the testing later in January.
