Jon Callard, former England Kicking Coach and former England and Bath player, recently came down to The Jim Saynor Ground to share his experiences and help develop a small group of kickers.
Explaining the value of timing and balance Jon went through routines to help Will Clough, Max Sharp and Jed Carr with kicking out of hand and place kicking. He emphasised the vital role that focus and determination plays when preparing to kick and then how practice aids muscle memory when executing the kick. A brilliant session.
Jon followed up by sending each player a detailed report on their techniques, with pictures illustrating areas to work on and a comprehensive list of areas to practice.
Many thanks Jon from all at The Pythons, what an experience for our players.
