David Lee February 21, 2018

THE 2018 intake of the Tatura Milk AFL GM Academy were put through their paces in Shepparton earlier in the week by specialist TAC Cup coaches as part of their induction.

The academy, entering its third year, has partnered with the Murray Bushrangers and Bendigo Pioneers programs, providing an AFL Draft Camp style testing environment for participants on Monday, which exposed them to elite testing and enable the collection of baseline data on agility, speed and power.

As part of the first session a parent induction session was also delivered to discuss the philosophies, activities and expectations of the program.

A second session will be held later today in Echuca.
