On Saturday February 27th at 9.30am the senior boys took off on a wonderful team building and fitness strengthening adventure. Starting off with a 5km run around Mount Barker looking for clues to there weekends destination, which they would discover to be Meningie.

The boys drove up in their teams and were met with a number of challenging team building exercises which they conquered through sheer determination and team work.

It was a productive weekend that will help in building the strong fitness base and team first attitude that will hold the boys in good stead for an assault on season 2016. Which starts this Friday night the 11th of March against Murray Bridge’s Imperials down at Murray Bridge.

So grab a friend or two and car pool down to support the senior boys as they put the hard work of the pre-season behind them and into a game.
