U14’s – Essex League – Training Sessions
Training sessions usually begin on the 1st Saturday in September and run through until the end of June. To see the full schedule visit The Calendar.
There are times during the season that sessions may not be on due to the hall not being available. Notices are usually posted on the club website in advance (Under the ‘NO SESSIONS’ post – parents should check regularly for any updates), but occasionally certain scenarios e.g. weather conditions means there is less notice. We advise all parents/players who attend our sessions to check the club website regularly for any new updates.
Session Age Group: School Years 7-9
Session Times (two sessions for this age group): Session 1: 5-6pm, Session 2: 6-7pm
Day of the Week: Saturday
Costs: We now operate a block booking system for our sessions. Each block is usually 6 or 7 weeks (it works out at £5 per session – Block payment MUST be paid at the first session of the block that players attend).
What to Bring: T-shirt, shorts/tracksuit or jogging bottoms, suitable trainers, drink(s) (preferably NOT fizzy). Hawks training top if you have one (these are compulsory ONLY for all team registered players), but for non-team players a t-shirt or any other basketball top they may have will be fine.
What to Expect: The U14’s use the middle sized basketball and start playing on the full size court and full height baskets. We focus on the fundamentals at the next level to the U11’s, however there may be new beginners in these sessions and they will cover learning these fundamentals from the start. We do run teams in this age group that compete in the U14 Junior Central League, but as in the past not all the players that attend the session register for the team. This is not a problem as we welcome players of all levels and look to develop them to learn to play the game.
