Last month my 147 Academy travelled back to the Vienna Snooker & Billiards Academy in Austria to hold another training weekend for the Austrian Billiards & Snooker Association.
This time seven players from all across Austria were invited to improve their technique, shot selection, training structure and potting skills. The players practiced Saturday from 10am - 6pm and on Sunday from 10am - 5pm.
Janzso Thomas, Liedtke Jérôme, Nüßle Florian, Peyr Michael, Rosmann Patrick, Trinkl Alexander and Charlesworth Oskar received coaching and practiced various routines to improve Concentration, Cue Ball Control, Break Building, Tactical and Safety Games during this camp.
Each player received a DVD of their playing techniques plus training programs and sports psychology audio to help them relax more.
During this camp they were junior, senior and master players and I worked on getting each player into the correct address position and stance position using my alignment laser. I also worked on developing a smoother cue action to strike the cue ball with confidence.
I would like to thank Austrian Sport Director Christian Fock and local coaches Guenther Echhart and Chau Zi Kim for their assistance during the camp and to Austrian Association for employing me to coach the National players for the past 3 years. I really believe the standard is improving and Andreas performance is great for building up the confidence in the squad.
