Competition Level AFL Goal Posts at Noosa for GWS Heat Training
With AFL clubs now turning to heat training over altitude training for performance improvement, Queensland is welcoming many interstate teams in the off-season. GWS are just one team heading north to prepare for the NAB Challenge and 2015 season, with training locked in for Noosa’s Weyba Road Oval next month. To prepare for the Giants’ arrival, AFL QLD and Noosa Council have been hard at work to bring the oval up-to-scratch.
AFL QLD Supply Goals
Home team, the Noosa Tigers, have been seeking an upgrade for several seasons, in particular for the existing goal posts which do not meet AFL guidelines. Wanting to present a top quality facility for the visiting Giants and the Tigers, AFL Queensland have committed to installing a new set of AFL goal posts from their preferred supplier, PILA sport.
Competition Level Goal Posts
AFL QLD have been auditing ovals across the state, incentivising them to upgrade to Competition level 12m / 8m goal posts to comply with the minimum standard for state level games. In line with this goal, Noosa will be receiving a set of Competition level AFL goal posts constructed from tapered aluminium from PILA sport, along with a community donation from PILA of brand new AFL post pads. Noosa Council will be erecting the new goal posts in early December.
These new AFL goal posts will make the oval compliant for the Giants’ training, as well as improving the amenities at Weyba Road Oval for the Noosa Tigers and the local community.
