Last weekend the 15th & 16th of September my 147academy returned to the city of Salzburg in Austria to hold the latest snooker training Camp for the Austrian National Snooker Team.
The Austrian Billiards & Snooker Association organised this camp and invited six players from their National Rankings with Florian Nüssle, Andreas Ploner, Oskar Charlesworth, Tajmeet Grover, Philipp Koch and Mario Bodlos attending this Cue Zone.
One of the players 16 year old Florian Nüssle last month won the Paul Hunter side event in Germany beating a string of top players and current Professional player Elliot Slessor from England 3-0 in the final. This boy is really improving and I believe he is fast becoming one of the top young players on the world stage.
During this Camp I focused on the players playing Techniques by developing good playing fundamentals using my academy laser and Master Doctor Kit. The players Stance, Grip, Bridge, and Address Position were fine tuned.
The players trained from 10am – 6pm each day and they received a CD with videos from the session plus a new Austrian training program to practice at home. I was again impressed with the commitment as the players always give it 100% effort.
The players made numerous high quality breaks and it was a pleasure training the players as their commitment was superb throughout the two day camp.
More good news came last month when the Austrian team won the three nation annual event for the third time in a row beating Germany and Switzerland and this goes well for confidence within the squad.
Finally I would like to personally thank the players for training so well. I would like to thank Austrian President and Sport Director Christian Fock for everything. Austrian Coach Chau Zi Kim for assisting me throughout the weekend.
I am already looking forward to holding the next Camp in October to prepare the players for the upcoming World IBSF Championship in Myanmar.
