2024 BOP Junior Rep Squads Announcement!

8 Apr

Thank you everyone who attended the BOP Junior Trials on Sunday, 24th March.

 Apologies for the delay in sending out this notification - sickness and the Easter break delayed us significantly.

Under 13's:
We had lots of boys trial, but unfortunately we currently only have 1 girl. We need at least 2 more girls to be able to enter a Under 13 team. At this stage we are unable to name a team but we will be actively looking for more girls over the next month. We will be in contact with U13 players regarding trainings going forward.

Under 15's:

We had a great turnout for this age-group! We will be entered 3 x Under 15 teams!At this stage we will be naming a squad and after a few week of trainings, we will put people into their teams. (This will give the coaches more opportunity to work out strengths and potential combinations).

Sunday Trainings:

There will be Sunday trainings - mostly in Tauranga and a few in Rotorua for the 9 weeks leading to the Palmerston North Nationals trip. Dates and times will be included on the Contacts Spreadsheet.We would encourage parents to liaise with each other regarding transport and arrange car-pooling for practices.

We will be setting up a 'whats app' group for each squad/team - this will help with ease of communication going forward. We will add both parents and player mobile contacts to these groups. (Understand U13s may not have mobiles so will be parents contacts).

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
