The squad travelled north to the Queensland coastal town of Maroochydore on Monday to undertake their next block of training.

The players will take advantage of local conditions to train in outdoor nets for the first time this pre-season alongside regular conditioning, leadership and team-building activities. 

SACA General Manager of High Performance Tim Nielsen said the trip was an important part of the pre-season program.

“It’s a great opportunity for the players to maximise their training outdoors away from the wintery conditions here in Adelaide,” Nielsen said.

“It’s a long pre-season. The camp also gives us a chance to mix things up, throw some different elements into the program and keep the squad engaged.

“The players will continue to work hard on all aspects of their game ahead of next month’s JLT One-Day Cup.”

The Statewide Super SA Scorpions will also travel to Maroochydore next week to ramp up their training ahead of the 2018-19 WNCL season.

The Scorpions will play several trial matches as part of their Maroochydore camp with an eye on the side’s opening match against Victoria in Perth on 22 September.

The Redbacks also kick off their 2018-19 summer in Perth at the WACA against New South Wales on 20 September.
