MAY 02, 2022 – Athletes Authority collaborate with the Sydney Roosters Tarsha Gale squad to provide elite testing.
We recently had the pleasure of attending the Sydney Roosters Tri Colours Academy Day, working with the next generation of NRLW superstars. Our testing team consisted of Head of Sports Science Adam and Strength and Conditioning Coaches Brendan and Nathan. The team took the girls through our Performance Testing protocols, Identifying each player’s strengths, weaknesses and blind spots, while also giving the girls a taste of elite athleticism.
The Tarsha Gale Competition is for Under 19s Women and has had great success in previous years with pathways into the NRLW and grand final wins. The competition began in 2017 with steady momentum toward twelve teams in the competition in 2022.
Tarsha Gale is a former Australian Jillaroos and NSW State of Origin captain- now retired as a school teacher. Tarsha reached the pinnacle of Rugby League in her career, captaining both Australia and NSW throughout the 1990s. She has since advocated for greater participation, funding and promotion of the women’s game – an aim which she is now seeing come to fruition.
