Dix focuses on pre-season
Beth Dix has been speaking ahead of her 3rd season at Sirens about building a “collective power” in the new squad
With four new faces in the mix this year, WA Beth says.:
“I think we’ve got a perfect balance this year. We’ve kept a core group of the team together and then we’ve added a few new faces too which is exciting.
It allows us to keep that stable structure and bring in new people that have a different style of play which can push the team. “
“New personalities, new energy in the group is great. It’s just about getting to know your team, spending time with them to help build those connections on the court – there are no shortcuts in this – but that is exactly what pre-season is for.”
Emphasizing the importance of the connections on and off the court, Dix adds:
“We have stayed connected in the off-season through group chats and meeting up, I went to commonwealth games to see the girls which was amazing.”
“Team building helps, we have our team building again in Crieff Hydro this weekend and I am so excited. Last year we did a full-on military assault course after playing two back- to-back pre-season games against Northern Titans and London Giants men’s teams. So, this year we are having a spa day which is perfect.
There will of course be a competitive activity in there – paintballing and archery which will be so great.”
