My latest Austrian National Training Camp was held this weekend in the HSEBC Cue Sports Academy in Vienna, Austria. This camp was again organised by the Austrian Billiards & Snooker Association and eleven players were invited to attend this camp.
- The Players
Oskar Charlesworth, Florian Nüßle, Jérôme Liedtke, Tajmeet Grover, Florian Toth, Mario Bodlos, Mike Busse, Arif Hussaini, Andreas Ploner and Billiard International players Werner Rieschl and Martin Schmidt attended this intense training camp to prepare two of the Austrian players for Qschool in England next month.
- The Camp Winners
I held different types of competitions during the camp to monitor the player’s performances. The Technical competition was won by Florian Nüßle with a stunning display with Andreas Ploner in second place and Oskar Charlesworth in third place.
In the Mental Competition it was again Florian Nüßle who was too strong to win it with Werner Rieschl in second place and Oskar Charlesworth in third place.
The Scoring competition was also won by Florian Nüßle with top quality scoring which included a 135 clearance on the Allen Break and 113 on the Max Break, in second place it was Andreas Ploner with Mario Bodlos in third place.
I also held two different Match-Play competitions and the winners were Mario Bodlos on day 1 with Andreas Ploner winning it on day 2.
- Training Plan
During this camp I worked with the players on improving their Technique, Break Building skills and Safety Games with specific academy Technical, Mental, Scoring and Match-Play routines.
I really feel the players are developing their game with every camp. All the players practiced from 10am – 6pm and it was a pleasure training them again as their commitment was superb.
All the players received a CD’s from the coaching camp along with a copy of the new training booklet to work on during each training session at home.
- Thank You
I would personally like again to thank the Austrian Association for inviting me to work with the players and I am already looking forward to holding the next camp in May.
Finally I would like to thank Austrian President and Sport Director Christian Fock and National Coach Chau Zi Kim for their assistance during the camp and I wish all the Austrian players Florian Nüßle and Andreas Ploner the best of luck in QSchool in England.
Come on Austria!!!!
