On Friday 6th of June, Kambrya’s Year 7 Athlete Development Program students were fortunate enough to have the opportunity to tour the Whitten Oval, made even more special by a once in a life time private tutorial with Western Bulldogs head coach Luke Beveridge.

The ADP students, who had former Richmond Coach and head ADP coach Jeff Gieschen touring them around, began their day watching the Western Bulldogs senior squad train and prepare for their upcoming game against the Adelaide Crows. Many of the players made their time available after training to chat to our students and it was a great chance for them to ask questions and get photos with the players they look up to.

Another highlight of the day was the tour of the Whitten Oval in which the ADP students got an insight into what an elite sporting organisation looks like. The professionalism of the staff and quality of the facilities was very impressive to see.

The highlight of the day was of course an unexpected 40 minute tutorial with Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge, who made his time available the day before a match to speak with our students. Luke spoke about leadership, attitude and the importance of team values. This was an invaluable session for the ADP students and left an unbelievably positive impression on the whole group.
