ERA students work with Melbourne Rebels Elite Pathways U 15 Junior Gold Cup training squad
On Friday a group of ERA students ventured to the Melbourne Rebels home ground at Ikon Park in Parkville. ERA has a great relationship with the Rebels, with many of our students undertaking placements with the club. ERA students worked with the U 15 Junior Gold Cup training squad where they completed a movement screen on the athletes. The students were able to put to use the information and skills they have been learning around working with adolescents. ERA Accredited Exercise Physiologist and Strength and Conditioning Coach Ashley Bigaran accompanied the students to Ikon Park. Ashley thought that the ERA students did an outstanding job working with the adolescent training group, and also fellow ERA graduate Mathew Koroneos, who is the assistant strength and conditioning coach for this squad. She noted that the students were not only ecstatic to be working with the Junior Gold Cup squad but just thankful for the opportunity. Well done to each of the students involved.
