JUNIOR TRAINING STARTS
I am delighted to inform you that a new venue has been found for our coaching sessions.
Starting this Saturday, 19th September, we will be coaching at the sports hall at Cornwallis Academy, Hubbard’s Lane, Loose, Maidstone ME17 4HX (directions at the following link):
Please remember the ‘15 minute rule’, meaning all players are asked to arrive at the venue 15 minutes before their scheduled start time and to remain in the vehicle with their parent / guardian for a temperature check. Also, each session will finish 15 minutes early to allow enough time for changeover / sanitisation, as follows :-
U10s: year 5 and below (coaching 09:30 - 10:45am);
U12s: years 6 - 7 (coaching 11:00am - 12:15pm);
U14s: years 8 - 9 (coaching 12:30pm - 1:45pm);
U16s: years 10 - 11 (coaching 2:00 - 3:45pm); and
U18s: years 12 - 13) (coaching 2:00 - 3:45pm).
By way of a recap, please refer to my email of August 21st on our complete COVID-19 protocols, which are also summarised in this short video.
Also, all players must be registered with both the Club AND Basketball England (BE) before they will be allowed to join the coaching sessions.
If you have not already done so, could you please ensure that you apply for a new player licence through BE at https://membership.basketballengland.co.uk
Further guidance on the BE licence renewal process can be found here https://www.basketballengland.co.uk/membership-hub/membership-renewal/ and please ensure that you link to Maidstone Warriors, using the code CA0848.
As per our COVID-19 Guidance Note, players are strongly encouraged to bring their own basketball to training sessions.
