The night commenced with a talk on sports nutrition by Boro’s own Team One Captain, Bianca who has recently completed her nutrition studies. Bianca spoke about the importance of fueling your body prior & post games/training, and the right combinations of fuel and hydration.
Boro’s favourite Physio, Julz Allan from Alphington Sports Medicine and the Athlete Advantage was also in attendance, taking each team through crucial exercises for Netball, including core strength, landing and balance drills. Alphington Sports Medicine provides 10% off for all NFL and NNL players as well as a vital concussion service on the weekends.
Ebony Korkie, Boro’s Myotherapist from Untangled Living located at Rivers of Yarrambat, took each team through a session of using foam rollers and the general importance of looking after your body pre & post netball.
