Summer League Final Information

We are pleased to be able to confirm the details of the Dorset Storm Summer League 2012. The competition will run on the 3rd and 30th June along with the 7th, 14th and 21st July at Rossmore Leisure Centre. This year teams in each league will play two games every week in a round robin style tournament. The idea of the league is to get as much competitive experience as possible for all players all the coaches will be ensuring that each player gets as much court time as possible whilst providing players with advice and coaching during the games.

Match results and league tables will be available on both our website and on the notice board at Rossmore Leisure Centre. This year all the leagues will work on a straight forward league format.

It is really important that you arrive on time to start your matches. We cannot afford to start late with so many matches to fit in every week. Aim to arrive at least 15 minutes before your scheduled tip off time to allow you time to get changed and warm-up. On a similar administrative theme, there are over 80 players and 15 coaches/officials involved so it is really important that you know where your belongings are! Make sure you do not leave your bag in the canteen or changing rooms and keep everything together there will be a lot of Storm tee-shirts around! Please do not bring your own basketballs, as they have a funny way of ending up on the court when a game is going on thus causing a hazard to those playing. You will be given your playing shirt at the first Summer League date, and will need to wear it for every match you play. It will be yours to keep at the end of the league. Please remember you need to wear your own shorts!

On the final Saturday, there will be a presentation to all the players after the final match in each tournament. For the Mini League, the presentation will take place at approximately 11.20am, Intermediate League approximately 12.50pm and the Senior League at approximately 4.15pm.

We are sure you will agree that this is an exciting time, which will provide an outstanding opportunity for all the players to experience competitive basketball. Parents are more than welcome to come and make some noise on the sidelines!

If you have any questions regarding the Summer League please do not hesitate to get in contact.
