Welcome 18 girls
11 SEP 2017 | BY NARELLE BREEN
Hi girls & welcome to the Myrtleford Saints 18 girls team. I am very excited & looking forward to coaching you girls this season. I have had a bit going on lately so apologise that I am not organised & have my head into basketball at the moment. Just letting you know this is what I am thinking at the moment:-
We will be training with 18 boys & or senior women’s & mens CBL teams this season as I feel 18’s basketball is not about learning how to play basketball, it’s the age when you should be playing your best basketball at rep tournaments. Training with the boys & CBL teams will be much harder, faster & physical & hopefully this will push you girls to become better players. Hope that makes sense.
In going with the above we will be entering in to Division 1 in all local tournaments as 18’s is when we should be peaking & playing the best we can. It’s not about winning but pushing to play good basketball at the highest level you can.
Boys & CBL teams are training now & we can join in on Tuesday nights from 6 to 7.30 or Sunday from 5 to 6.30. Training is not compulsory until after school holidays, but as I said if you wish to start now go for it.
Training will commence the first week back at school after holidays which will give us about 6 weeks to get in shape for Wangaratta Tournament.
We will be doing Wangaratta (Nov) Shepparton (Dec) Wodonga (Feb) & Benalla (March). I have made a decision after speaking to a few people that we will not do Bendigo as being long weekend it’s a busy & hard weekend for girls to get out of work & can be an expensive weekend with accommodation. Therefore if your parents have already booked for Bendigo, let them know that we will not be playing.
Our last tournament will be State championships 17/18 March 2018 in Bendigo.
Above Is what I am thinking at the moment. If you have any questions or wish to discuss anything please text or call me on
