Sharks Update - Jan 2022


Competition Update

Senior competition recommenced this week and juniors will be back on court commencing this Monday, 24 January.

There will be no games on Wednesday 26 January, so U16 & U18 Boys have to wait another week before their games are back underway.

We have also reviewed our training schedule for the remainder of the Summer season and the times for some age groups have changed. The new schedule commencing Sunday 23 January is as follows:

* Aussie Hoops commences 6 February, 2022

The Aussie Hoops packs normally take 10-14 days to arrive. With current postage delays, this could take longer - don’t worry we can lend you a basketball until your child’s ball arrives!

Children are welcome to come and try at the first session - but please register interest via email to ensure we have enough coaches available geelongsharks.aussiehoops@gmail.com
