We have started our countdown to training camp, as our players are set to hit the floor on August 26th – I’m very excited to have our group back together. They have been working very hard over the summer to hit the ground running this fall.
Also, exciting news on our Alumni front: Leslie Aldcorn 1985-90, and Julie Farquhar 1987-1991, will be on hand for our Alumni weekend and will be speaking on behalf of the teams we are honouring (1985-86 to 1989-90). Leslie is flying in from Lethbridge, while Julie makes the flight from Calgary. Both served as Captain for the Gaels, forming the core of teams that gained respect across the country for their toughness and tenacity. Please check out our website for details and to register for the weekend: http://www.gogaelsgo.com/sports/2011/8/19/WBB_0819114220.aspx?path=wbball
Alumni, Brittany Moore (2007-2012) is continuing her professional basketball career, this time in Kelter, Germany (in the south near Stuttgart). A very successful coach in the German pro league prompted Britt to make the move to southern Germany. She heads over at the end of August.
Queen’s Basketball Camp (Gr. 2-5) begins on Monday, August 19, with the Queen’s Basketball Academy (Gr. 6-8) beginning the following week (August 26). We finish off our summer camp season with a Junior Girls Team Camp on Saturday, September 7th. Spaces are still available, but limited. Our Elite Training Camp, now finished, sold out.
