Premier Training Sqaud players are welcome to attened the second night to “top up” their skills, but the second session will allow the second and third team memebrs to prepare for the upcoming season and for a chance to cement their place in the desired squads.

Brand new website

Welcome to the 2018/19 season and the most obvious change you may have noticed is that we have a brand new website! We’ve aimed to simplify things to make it much easier to navigate and find the information you need. As an added bonus, it should be easier for us admins to keep up to date! Please take a look around the site at your leisure.

And now that the new website is up and running, it also means that registration is open for the new season! You can find information and registration forms for both Juniors and Seniors on the site.

While we do aim for perfection, we realise that there’s often some teething issues with all things new, so please let us know if you find any broken or orphaned links.
