Team Check In: Harold Matthews Cup

Over the next few weeks we will be checking in on each of our teams to see how pre-season training is going. With five teams currently training it is a feat of organisation to ensure each squad has access to field, gym, Physios, Trainers, Strength & Conditioning Coaches and, of course, their Head Coach to ensure they are maintaining a high level of performance.

To start the series, we chatted with Hayden Gregory, Strength & Conditioning Coach our our Harold Matthews Cup U17s junior representative squad. Hayden has been impressed with how the team is training so far “The boys are hitting three gym sessions a week in their own time and one with the club which is a high intensity strength and conditioning circuit.”

2021 Player Awards Announced

After another tumultuous year, it was our pleasure to honour the Bears Player’s who gave their all and made a difference both on and off the field in 2021. Unfortunately we weren’t able to hold a physical event this year but we were able to catch up with our award recipients virtually over Zoom to acknowledge their efforts and celebrate their successes.

Team of the Century by Bear Park Brew

We have been working closely with Six Strings Brewing on a very special limited edition release of Bear Park Brew that commemorates the North Sydney Bears Team of the Century. 18 individually designed cans each representing one of the Bears legends who were honoured with a jersey in our Team of the Century that was announced in 2006. Additionally, there are 6 can designs that represent our club logos and jersey designs over the last 113 years. These cans are collectors items that will be treasured by all supporters of the Red & Black for many years to come.
