Youth Wednesdays

06 April, 2019

Youth Wednesdays

This is a session open to all young players (primarily age 7-17) and is aimed at learning and consolidating individual skills and techniques such as ball handling, shooting and scoring moves based on drills from some of the best coaches in the world. Do the names Alan Stein, Drew Hanlen, Brian Williams, Pat Anderson and Jim Huber mean anything to you?

Hosted every Wednesday (during term time only) at SJB school's magnificent double court in Woking, you will find around 25 to 32 boys and girls of all skills, ages and athleticism. There is no excuse for feeling shy or inadequate. The atmosphere is such that you will never feel intimidated; on the contrary, you will be given all the encouragement you need to get better. Bit by bit.

The sessions take place in the sports hall at SJB school, end of Elmbridge Lane, Woking, GU22 9AL from 6.30pm to 8pm. Boys and girls aged 7 to 17 of all skill levels are welcome. Most of the time we have 4 coaches on the floor (coach Matt Rossini pictured here) who ensure all skill levels are catered for.

How much will it cost?

There are two options here:

A) Pay £3 every time you turn up to play - simple as that.

B) Become a club member for £40 and attend these sessions for free. This option makes a lot of financial sense up until January as you can score big time. The Youth Wednesday membership is renewable every year.

New Club Record set

As more parents visit our new website, the number of young players attending the Youth Wednesday sessions is increasing week on week.  So this Wednesday (13 March 2019) we set a new club record with 44 players attending (43 in the photo and Dillon who arrived just after the photo was taken). This smashes the last record (6 Feb 2019) of 41 attendances. We needed five coaches (Costas, Matt, Adrien, Ali and Paul) on the court today to cope with the numbers. And what a pleasure it was!

06-Feb-2019: Three rounds of free-throws competition during the Youth Wednesday session this week and Katie wins two rounds while Beth settles for one. Forty-one boys and girls competed in total, so competition was stiff. Well done our two girls.
