Sam Whish-Wilson, Director of Basketball
Somerset Basketball Club will again enter teams in the Gold Coast City Regional Basketball Association (GCCRBA) Winter Competition, following a successful 2017 season campaign. The objective of the Somerset College Basketball programme is to always foster positive growth, as an athlete and as a person.
Our emphasis in the Basketball Club is always on effort, learning, and personal improvement, consistently aiming and striving to be our best.
Without doubt, winning is highly valued, but our well-informed basketball coaches at Somerset College realise that winning finds its rightful place when athletes are participating, having fun, improving their skills, and giving maximum effort. We focus on the development of fundamentals, improving the understanding of the game and providing opportunities.
The club will aim to enter teams in the following age groups. I have included a Players Born column to assist with calculations:
Age Group Players Born
In 2018 players will get the opportunity to trial in their age groups to work out teams and divisions. The trials will take place on Saturday 3 February and Sunday 11 February 2018. Each trial will be one hour.
Players are asked to wear their Spartan reversible singlet if they have one or bring a white and a dark shirt. All players must attend one session. Please contact Mr Whish-Wilson if you have any questions regarding basketball and also if players are going to be unavailable for any of these trials and an alternative arrangement will be made.« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
