THE 24-member national sevens training side will focus on the theoretical aspects of the game during the three-day camp at Queen Elizabeth Barracks in Nabua.
National coach Alifereti Dere said the squad had been briefed on their requirements for the camp and it's up to the players to show up and be part of it.
He said the players would be given lectures during the first camp this week to get players in the right frame of mind.
"It is very important for the players to have the right mind-set when preparing for something," Dere said. "That is why we will be conducting lectures and talking to the players within the classroom first before we begin the physical training. We have to train the mind first before we train the body because the mind will tell the body what is needed to be done."
The former national captain said this was a lesson they learnt from last season where they did not have enough theoretical preparation.
"It was one of the weaknesses last season so we are going make sure that we don't make the same mistake again.
"During the camp players will be told of their individual targets and team targets so everyone works toward the same target." Dere said this part of the preparation was very important and players must take it seriously and learn from it.
"I would like to remind them that this aspect of preparation is important before we begin the physical training.
"It gets serious from here and not from the physical training like in the past so come ready to learn," he said.
Dere said the three days would also be used to get the administration work done so the next camp will involve only team bonding and leadership exercises.
The third camp which will be 10 days long will see the squad undergo physical and strenuous training.
