Dear Rockets,

 

Yes it’s the Winter season and isn’t it lovely and warm?  NO

With the summer season just finished at Knox it was great to see so many players and parents enjoying basketball.  Well done for another successful season.

Congratulations to all teams that made finals.  We had eleven teams that went through to the Grand Final, U10/1A, U10/3D, U12/1A, U12/2B, U12/4CR, U14/1B, and U16/3CR girls and U10/2C, U12/1BR, U14/2BR and U20/1B boys teams.  We had four teams winning their grand final and seven runners up.  I hope everyone involved enjoyed the day.  I look forward to congratulating you at our AGM, Presentation Day.

 

Once again I would like to thank Coaches and Team Managers for giving time for their teams, and parents for their passion and cheering.

 

Please do not forget that the 23rd of June is our AGM and Presentation Day.  It starts at 3pm at the Community Centre.  Come along and celebrate the children’s achievements.

 

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome all new players and parents to our great  club this season.  We have had quite a few new players join the club in the last number of months.   Good luck.

 

As this is my last newsletter as President, I would like to thank the Committee for their support over the last two years.  Some Committee Members are stepping down from their positions and I would like to wish those people the best of luck.  Others are staying on and taking different roles.  I would likae to invite any parents to nominate for a position on the Committee and help with the running of the club.  Nomination forms will be sent out in the mail.

 

Yours truly, 

 

Peter Farragher

FLOOR SWEEPING  -  KNOX

 

Floor sweeping  between games is now mandatory to ensure that the court surface is a safe environment for the players.

 

In the past it has been left to the discretion of the team

managers or coaches,  as to whether it is  in need or not, but as this is not working, we must now advise all teams that they are to sweep one half of their court before the game is played. 

 

We will allow a period of time to ensure this is happening, however if it does not occur we will be asking the referees to start the clock at the start time but to delay the start of the game until the court has been swept. 

 

As the coach and team manager are already busy organising the players for the game, this is a job for those parents who are only there to watch  -   to grab the broom and do a quick sweep at the end of the court where your players are warming up.

 

I hope teams heed this advice as we do not want the players to lose any playing time, and we do want them to play in a safe environment.

Having been a player, only for the last 28 years, I now understand and appreciate the

challenges and excitement coaching has to offer and I LOVE IT!

This has largely been due to a wonderful group of girls who love the game and who have been a pleasure to train.  They have worked extremely hard to improve their skills and gel as a team and great friends.  Their dedication has been reflected in a brilliant performance over the

season, starting off a little shaky, but quickly improving to finally end up 3rd for the season, winning the semi final but being knocked out in the preliminary final.  Considering that we had a number of girls who had never played before, I think that they performed superbly!!!

Well done Jenna, Claire, Suzi, Morgan, Lynsey, Sarah & Elly   -  You have made this a very memorable season.
