training sessions. Football shorts or running shorts are to be worn at training. No board shorts,
cargo shorts etc. All watches, chains and earrings must be removed prior to training.

Treatment of Injuries
Any injuries sustained whilst participating in the EDP must be reported to the Training Staff.

Players injured will receive treatment and instructions for further treatment from the Training

Medical Room
The medical room is specifically for the treatment of injuries only. Players are requested not to
use the medical room for any other purpose.

This rule will be strictly enforced in the interests of those administering treatment and the
players receiving it.

The medical room phone is for use of the Training Staff only.

Mouth guards
Mouth guards must be worn at all times. The Club will not be responsible for the payment of

are only available to players and staff.

Player Insurance
Players are covered by the insurance policy taken out by the West Adelaide Football Club
through JLT Sport if an injury is sustained whilst training or playing with the Club.

However the policy does not provide the same level of cover as private health insurance. The
West Adelaide Football Club strongly recommends that players maintain or take out private
health insurance that covers hospital, medical and dental needs. If the policy carries an excess,
the player is liable to pay this portion of the bill.

Medical Reimbursement

Prior to visiting a treating physician obtain a JLT Sport claim form from Talent Manager.

    1. Complete the claim form as soon as possible after injury occurs. The Sports Injury
       Attending Physician’s Report must be fully completed prior to submitting a claim.
    2. An excess of $100 applies to each injury claim.
    3. JLT Sport must be notified of a claim within 30 days of the injury.
    4. Claim through Medicare and / or private health insurance as appropriate.
    5. Forward the completed claim form promptly to Bob Manning and the Club will lodge the
       claim with JLT Sport.
    6. Receipts for treatment are to be given to Bob Manning and will be lodged with JLT
       Sport.

Club Property

All players must be aware of their personal responsibility to treat club property as they would
their own. It is important to become conscious of this need as loss of club property involves
further financial outlay and may cause programs to be reduced or membership fees to be
increased

Activity 1.

AFL Statistics show that there is a 70% chance of scoring a goal as a result of a turnover inside your
forward 50. What can you do to ensure that the ball is able to stay inside your forward 50.


Activity 2.

Centre clearances from a ball up are the easiest time to kick a goal, how can we try to ensure that we
win the centre clearance?
Activity 3

Statistics show that there is a stoppage every 2-3 minutes in a game and increasing. 6 of the top 8
AFL sides consistently beat their opposition in clearances. What can we do to ensure our team is able
to win a stoppage in defence?

Activity 4.

Statistics show that there is a stoppage every 2-3 minutes in a game and increasing. 6 of the top 8
AFL sides consistently beat their opposition in clearances. What can we do to ensure our team is able
to win a stoppage in attack?


Activity 5.

Invasion sports are predominately defensive games, a number of teams we play will drop a ruckman
or mid fielder behind the ball, some may even play their half forwards as loose players in defence, as
a team what can we do to counteract this?
                                              HYDRATION

     Fluids are absolutely crucial in footy to help your body function properly

     Dehydration will affect your performance both in training and games.

     To work out how much fluid you loose, weigh yourself before and after training in shorts
      only (no shoes or socks).

     The amount of weight you have lost is approximately how much fluid you have lost
      (assuming you haven’t eaten anything).
          o 1kg weight lost = 1Litre fluid lost.

     You should aim to loose no more than 1kg (1Litre) over the course of a training session or
      game.

     Have a mixture of water and sports drinks

     Heavy sweaters will need more electrolytes (mainly sodium), so will benefit from drinking
      sports drinks, but may need to have extra salt on their food and/or take salt/electrolyte
      supplements.

     You MUST HAVE A DRINKING PLAN based on your needs.

    TIPS:

    1.   Drink regularly throughout day (have clear/pale urine).
    2.   Aim for at least 500ml in the hour before exercise
    3.   AIM 150-250ml every 15 minutes (water or sports drink)
    4.   Replace 150% of lost fluid ie. if you lose 1kg of weight = 1Litre, need to rink 1.5L afterwards
         to replace fluid loss

                                              CARBOHYDRATES


 Carbohydrates are the most important nutrient for footballers.


 You store carbohydrates mainly in your muscles and use them as your MAJOR FUEL SOURCE in training
  and games.


 If you have enough Carbohydrate in your diet you will

        o    Train and play better

        o    Get sick less often and have more energy

        o    Have less fatigue and quicker recovery


 After 1-1 ½ hours of training at moderate – high intensity, your body carbohydrate stores have almost
  totally disappeared. They will disappear even faster if your “fuel tank” wasn’t 100% to start with.


 Your “fuel tank” should be topped up before every training session – this will allow you to train harder and
  improve. It should also be topped up/full before games.


 To do this you need to eat carbohydrates in your main meals and also as snacks throughout the day.
  Breakfast, M/Tea, Lunch, A/Tea, Dinner, Supper.


 Good carbohydrate based snacks are: fresh/tinned/dried fruit, muesli/breakfast bars, pretzels, low fat
  crackers, fruit bread, fruit bun, pikelets, crumpets, English muffins, pita bread, jam/honey sandwich, low
  fat yoghurt/custard or creamed rice


 Drinks can also be an excellent way to top up carbohydrate intake: sports drink, low fat milk
  (plain/flavoured), sustagen sport, Up & Go’s, smoothie, Fruit juice, cordial & soft drink

    Note: Milk drinks are much better for your body than cordial and soft drink, and should be regularly
    included as a recovery snack+/- at other times

 Take carbohydrate snacks/drinks with you in the car & also have them in your training bag.

                                       CRAMPS AND FOOTY

      About two out of every three athletes have experienced painful muscle cramp during sport.
       It usually occurs in the muscles directly involved in the exercise eg. the calf/thigh muscle
       during footy


      A number of theories have tried to explain what causes cramps during exercise. The main
       cause appears to be altered neuromuscular function – which involves the nerves and the
       muscle and is caused by extreme fatigue in the exercised muscle.


      Extremes of temperature (high or low) don’t appear to be the direct cause of cramp in
       exercise, but they do increase the risk.


      The evidence that dehydration can cause cramps is also sketchy, however it is very
       important that footballers reduce their risk of being dehydrated by drinking enough fluid
       when training and competing - especially when hot/humid. This can be done through water
       and Sports Drinks.


      While some athletes loose large amounts of sodium (salt) in their sweat, the evidence that
       this can cause cramp is still inconclusive.


      If you are a big sweater, in some individual cases, supplementing with extra sodium (salt)
       may be helpful, but needs to be done under the guidance of your Sports Dietitian.


      Research has revealed that abnormal blood levels of potassium, magnesium or calcium do
       not cause cramp in exercise. For this reason you don’t need to supplement with these as
       they will not help prevent cramps.

Reducing the risk of cramp

       1. Be fit. Cramps are less common in footballers who are well trained and their muscles are
          conditioned for footy

       2. Have enough carbohydrate before and during exercise, which may help prevent early
          muscle fatigue

       3. Drink regularly to prevent dehydration

       4. Stretch before and after exercise
                                            RECOVERY
