Storm 'mindful' of success

‌Coach Craig Bellamy and football director Frank Ponissi decided to bring in two external consultants to work with players and coaches to provide support. It's new to the Storm, but it has paid dividends.

"Every year we're looking to where we can find an edge to be better in previous years," Ponissi said. "We make fun of our study trips, but we do – we go with a focus on a specific area, and last year we looked at sports psychology. It's an area we haven't dabbled in at all.
