Four very talented young Manly Warringah Sea Eagles players received a valuable insight into life as a professional first grade player at the annual NRL Rookie Camp.
Clayton Faulalo, Zane Dunford, Charlie Thompson, and James Uesele represented the Sea Eagles at the two day NRL Rookie camp held at the Novotel in Parramatta last weekend.
The NRL Rookie Camp saw players presented with a series of workshops covering topics such as personal brand, cultural awareness, gambling, alcohol and drugs, respectful relationships, sexual consent, vilification, social media, career coaching support, and education grant funding,
Tim Gee, the Sea Eagles Wellbeing and Education Manager, said the camp covered a number of important areas.
“NRL Rookie camp is a time where all new NRL players from different clubs come together to celebrate their induction into the NRL competition,'' Gee said.
"They belong to something special now and the players are educated on a variety of important topics to enable them to make the right choices when faced with challenges in their career or life.
"They are also made acutely aware of the numerous avenues of support available to assist them through their journey."
