The Central Coast training camp appeared to achieve it objective.
Three field sessions, a couple of times in the gym, plenty of review and preview video and a media session involving all 20 players at the camp and a large media contingent.
It was the ideal way to narrow the focus of the Sharks NRL squad and to get the players ready to go for their season-opener against the Cowboys on March 5.
Twenty Sharks NRL squad members arrived at the Star of the Sea Resort in Terrigal on Tuesday evening and in between some downtime at the cafe's of Terrigal and a dip in the ocean it was all business as the season creeps ever-closer.
Some strength work in the gym kicked off the camp on Wednesday morning, before an opposed training session against the Wyong Roos NSW Cup squad took place later in the afternoon.
In the middle of all of that the players conducted their pre-season interviews with those members of the press in attendance, to a man all speaking positively about what lay ahead in the weeks and months to come.
Thursday was recovery and stretching and a series of review and preview video sessions, before more field training, this time at the nearby Mingara Sports Centre on Friday morning.
From there it was back into the gym post-lunch before they were on the road and heading home, prepared for training to lift another level in intensity next week before game one of the 2016 season on Saturday.
Sharks TV left the boys alone and to their own devices for much of the week, allowing them to concentrate on the tasks at hand, but we did manage to capture some training footage from the Wyong session on Wednesday.
See the boys go through their paces with out special video package, now playing on Sharks TV.
