Warm greetings everybody and welcome to the new season!
Overall, it was very rewarding witnessing the huge improvement (both technically and behaviourally) most of our players made during the 2017-18 season and the fact that we are going into the new season with a total of 27 players (and growing!) on our books is very promising indeed.
We would all like to build on last season’s success, so this season will be a period of growth on all fronts. We will be asking you very soon to register for the new season so that we can align our resources accordingly.
Speaking of resources, Alex Braine-Porter has now moved across to the Boys section but Ali Strong (of WHS fame) has joined us as an assistant coach to help coaches Costa, Matt and Adrien during the Youth Wednesday sessions. More good news as Russell Fernandez has joined us as the U12s team manager. Emma Hilling will be our U14s and U13s team manager and Costas will look after the U16/7s for now.
The Saturday combined teams (U10, U12, U14 and U16) training sessions will still be held at Woking High school but for two hours only (10:30-12:30). Additional training is during Youth Wednesdays (6.30-8.30) at SJB school. The 8-8.30pm slot is reserved for scrimmage for the older girls (u12 to u16s). All training sessions do not take place during half terms, Christmas, Easter and summer holidays unless otherwise notified.
We have reduced the annual fees slightly for this season to entice more girls to experiment and fall in love with basketball.
