Gilly was great with our session, we did some videos of the drills that he ran. Over the course of the session the boys improved dramatically. Repetition and clear instructions helped the boys understand what they need to do. Looking forward to seeing how they can use the skills on the football field. Thanks so much Gilly! Will be rebooking in the future.

Trevor was a sensational choice for a small group clinic for my son and his friend. The boys were engaged from the very first minute and for the next hour Trevor shared tip after tip after tip. Most importantly he worked on good technique and good habits for tackling which was exactly what the boys needed. Trevor is genuinely engaged in developing juniors and setting them on a solid path for future success. We’d definitely recommend Trevor to anyone looking to improve their technique and drills, especially for tackling.

Excellent. He was really good with the boys, gave them some really good advice and drills to practice. They had a great time and I'm sure it has boosted their confidence and technique in tackling.

Had the best time learning and refining tackling skills from Gilly during our session. I was a bit nervous at the start but he was so friendly and easy to get along with. Learning from the Master himself was an honour. I look forward to booking more sessions. Thanks Gilly!
