"Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out." John Wooden, legend basketball coach
Winter Season has kicked off, and it was great to see so many players walking around the courts with our new hoodies! They look great and it's nice to see a little Club pride around. We can't wait for the warm-up tops to arrive in a few weeks!
No game this Saturday 25th April due to ANZAC Day. Training is still on this week.
Coaches meeting - All coaches are requested to attend a short meeting next Sunday 26th April, 3-4pm at BPPS. This is a great opportunity to meet with other coaches that also give their time & expertise to the teams. We will go through Club expectations and answer any questions. The workshop topic (if you wish to stay for this part) will be on planning your training sessions.
Scoring Class - Never done scorebench? Or feeling a bit out of your depth about scoring a game? Come to our scoring class on Wednesday 22nd April 7-8pm at BHS (classroom next to Court 2).
Official Team photos - Your last chance to collect photos is on Thursday 23rd April 8-9pm at Balwyn Leisure Centre. Please have your age group and team number from last season ready. Otherwise, you may have to wait a while until we find you as there are still 100s of photos left.
Hoodies - If you ordered a hoodie through our eStore by 7th April (first batch) and are still yet to collect it, please do so at the time above. We will advise you shortly of the next collection date for hoodies ordered after 7th April.
Our first Blazer who received their hoodie!
Every Friday during the school term at Balwyn High School. There is more information in the column on the left of this page.
I hope everyone enjoyed being back on the courts this week. Grading is a process (6 Rounds) so please be patient if Round 1 was a bit of a shock or a little too easy! There's always something positive to take away from a game. Have a good week at training. GO BLAZERS!
