2012/2013 Season Recap
Over 70 girls participated in 5 teams
The club experienced another successful year as our membership increased to 75 players. These young ladies participated in teams ranging from Under 12 through Under 17 all in the Dublin Ladies Basketball Board Junior League. Most of our squads were competitive and all ability and fitness as the season progressed. Special mention is given to the U12 squad who topped their table (see side story) and Denise Moran’s U15 squad which ended up with a top four finish in a very tough division. While everyone loves a what the juvenile program at the club is all about and on that score we did the business. The club would like to thank the coaches, adult volunteers and the Parents who all contributed to making this year a success.
While everyone loves a winner, participation, skill development and fun is really what the juvenile program at the club is all about and on that score we did the business.

Don’t be shy, we can use the help
With 75 juvenile players, the club is now near capacity in terms of coaching and court time. We will attempt to accommodate interested new comers, but will not be adding any new teams for next season. With our core coaching capacity taken up, we are looking for volunteers to help with score table, referee and coaching. The club will sponsor volunteers who take Basketball Ireland courses in all of the above. If anyone is interested please contact us. The squad memebers received medals from Val at the year-end party held at the GAA Club. Well done Girls!!
The Ladies team is coming Back!
2013/2014 Juvenile Teams
The club will field the following teams for the 2013/2014 campaign with their coaches:
Club renews rental arrangement with St Maurs GAA
The club has secured the necessary court time for training and matches for its teams for the 2013/2014 season through an agreement reached with St Maurs GAA. The agreement moves the club from a pay as you go rental arrangement to a fixed time/fixed fee deal that makes fiscal management for both sides a bit easier and allows the club some stability in setting it’s schedule. One new feature in the agreement is the provision of court time for juvenile home matches on Sunday mornings from 10 to 2. This will allow us to secure regular and less costly referee coverage. As part of the deal, we will have agreed to setup chairs and tables for bingo in the hall after the last match on Sunday. We will be looking for volunteers to form a rota to help the club meet this commitment. Please speak to the coaches of your child’s team if you are willing to lend a hand.
After a two year hiatus, the senior ladies team is planning a return to the DLBB. Tim Murphy will coach the team. Recruiting is underway and has been successful so far. There should be a mix of veterans, new players who have relocated to the area and some of the younger talent that has developed within the club. Training will take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights at St Maurs GAA hall at 8:30. Fees will be €125 for the season which includes €25 contribution toward new kit. Players are still being sought, so please contact Tim Murphy on 087927062 if you or someone you know are interested.

Home matches will be held at St Maurs GAA hall as will training. Match schedules will be published in September and training times will be communicated at registration. Registration will be held the week of 26 August. Fees for the Juveniles will be €90 per child (€10 Registration and €80 Membership Fees). Families will not have to pay for more than two children enrolled in the Club. The €10 Registration Fee will be due at the first training session. Membership can be paid in two €40 installments, the first due by 30 September and the 2nd due 31 January 2014 Please note, this fee arrangement will allow us to stop the weekly collection of €2 per player at training and will allow us to ensure proper funding is in place to meet our operating expenditures which include items such as court rental, insurance, BBI and DLBB fees, referee and official fees. We are nearing capacity so please register ontime to ensure your child has a place.
