Term 3 is half way through. Thank you to all those that are having coaching this term that have been patient with me being away a bit this term. I am 3/4 of the way through my Junior Development Coaching course which involves 16 days in chch spread over 4 blocks. Just one more week to go. So thank you to my lovely assistant coach Chontelle for stepping in while I have to be away.

Junior coaching is currently on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday at Tahunanui and Thursday at Wakapuaka. Adult coaching groups, technical coaching on Friday and Saturday morning and a fun hitting session on Thursday mornings at Tahunanui. Wakapuaka has an adult technical session on Thursday afternoon. Private lessons are available right through the week. I also offer hitting to anyone that just wants a backboard to hit against.
