We are delighted to announce a brand new AllGirls session starting the week commencing 7th February.
Currently, we have almost 30 girls that consistently attend the #AllGirls session on a Monday night at Culford, and it’s due to this high demand of these sessions we have decided to split the U14 and U16 girls into two sessions during the week.
Our U16 girls will train on a Monday night, 7pm to 8.30pm at Culford. And our U14 girls will take the new session on a Tuesday night, 7pm to 8.30pm – replacing the current club shooting session.
Creating this new session speaks so much about the growth of girls’ basketball at our club! We are proud to be able to make this change as shows our commitment to continue to progress – both for the girls currently in the programme, and those who’ll be a part of it in the future.
With the U16 Girls training before the Senior Women, it also helps to maintain the relationship between the Junior and Senior sides, and to continue to demonstrate the pathway we’re building at the club.
By having two sessions, it will allow more time for our coaches to work with every player to assist in their development, and gives us some more space for new players. So if you are interested in Basketball and would like to join a girls team, then please get in touch on the email below.
A few years ago we had the desire to start our girls program. We brought a new coach into the club to help start this vision. Coach Jo Brawn has been leading these sessions since the start. We asked for her opinion on this new session, “I think it’s amazing. I am so pleased all the hard work is paying off. My first session was with 5 or 6 girls and now I have almost 30 girls on the register who are committed to coming every week! As an #AllGirls Ambassador this is an important breakthrough and I will continue to work hard to make sure it continues to grow”. She added, “I love coaching these girls. They are a lovely bunch and we have fun whilst improving every session”.
Now we have 3 sessions a week dedicated to females across our club and we couldn’t be more excited about the future of our Girls and Women’s basketball programmes!
U16 Girls: Monday 7pm to 8:30pm
Women’s: Monday 8:30pm to 10pm
U14 Girls: Tuesday 7pm to 8:30pm
