Glenn Hall joins Surfing NSW Talent Identification Camp
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 15 July, 2013 : - - Marouba, NSW - Current World Tour competitor Glenn “Micro” Hall will join forces with Surfing NSW this forthcoming weekend for the second 2013 Talent Identification Camp (TIC) at Maroubra.
The two-day camp will provide participants with vital information on contest strategies, preparation and individual technique, prior to next week's Ohana NSW Junior State Titles.
Surfing NSW State Coaching Director Blake Johnston said: “Bringing Glenn’s competitive experience to the table will definitely provide the kids with a good perspective on how to develop a competitive strategy, as well as offering advice they could find useful in a heat."
"Glenn is also an accomplished coach, having worked with guys like Adrian Buchan and Matt Wilkinson. I think between the two of us, we will have a lot of wisdom to impart to all the kids who are coming to the camp.”
Glenn said: “I hope I can offer some advice and give tips to all surfers that could help them reach their goals, whether that be to win an event or simply get through a few heats. Having competed in the State Titles in the past, I know that a lot of the surfers will be feeling pressure and they’ll be nervous ahead of their heats. I feel like I can help them overcome some of those mental hurdles.”
Hall added: “Blake is someone I have a lot of respect for, both as a surfer and as a coach. He has a lot of wisdom when it comes to coaching and loves what he does. Hopefully, the two of us will be able to arm the surfers with some techniques and advice that they’ll use over the course of their competitive life.”
Surfing NSW Talent Identification Camps are aimed to improve the standard of NSW surfing at a junior level and offer elite coaching while developing relationships between the surfers and coaches within the Surfing NSW network.
Through these clinics, Surfing NSW will be able to identify junior talent to help with the selection process for Surfing Australia HPC Camps, Elite State Camps and Team NSW selection for 2014.
The dates for the 2013 camps are:
- South Coast, Lake Tabourie - 1 June to 2 June.
- Sydney, Maroubra - 20 July to 21 July.
- Central Coast - Mid-North Coast, Newcastle - 17 August to 18 August.
