ALCHERINGA SAINTS NEWSLETTER MARCH 2014

Summer Finals and Summer Season 2013/14

The summer finals are drawing to a conclusion this week. We have had a number of junior sides participating in finals, some yet to play in Grand Finals. Congratulations to all teams that have made finals and good luck to the ones that are playing in a Grand Final. GO SAINTS.

Also congratulations to all teams in all divisions that represented the club in the 2013/14 Summer Competitions. We have seen real improvement through all age groups from U10's to U16's both girls and boys. Well done.

In the Senior Grades our Premier Women participated in the First Semi Final going down to Hawks. Coach Travis Coombes and his girls have had an encouraging season and will be looking to go further into the finals next year. Rodey James and the Premier Men's side unfortunately did not make the finals however we were encouraged by the development of some of our U16 Boys who got a taste of Premier League action this year. Rodey with a number of players will be back for the 2014/15 season.

This season has seen our participation numbers since re-establishing our junior and senior programs continue to grow. In a short space of time we have now become one of the major clubs in the MBA and we envisage further growth with team numbers in 2014/15 summer competitions. For the first time the club will field U18 Boys and U18 Girls sides. We believe our junior and now senior programs are amongst the strongest in the region. A large group of club players are representing the Junior Heat and we have again had Victoria Country representatives. Congratulations to Shawn Clarke and Joey Muscatello on making their respective Victoria Country teams this season. Both performed remarkably well at the recent state tournament. Even more pleasing is the development of all junior players and the competitiveness all our teams have shown within their divisions this summer. Thank you to all our players representing Alcheringa proudly in junior and senior competitions this summer, well done.

As we are all aware clubs don’t run automatically it takes a huge effort. We are growing at the rate of five plus teams per season therefore more challenges present each year. Thanks to our voluntary Committee Members, coaches, team managers and parents who have helped throughout the season. Your efforts enable our club to put our teams on the court each week, thankyou vey much. To further enhance our programs we will endeavour to extend an offer to all coaches to attend some coaching training before the commencement of the 2014/15 summer season.

Alcheringa basketball trio earn State honours

ON THE BALL: Ryan Woods, Shawn Clarke and Riley Mathews will take on the best young basketball talent in the country next month, with the Alcheringa Basketball Club team mates to represent Country Victoria at the Australian Junior Country Cup. By VINNIE RODI

ALCHERINGA Basketball Club created history this week, with three of its talented Under 14 basketballers selected to represent Country Victoria at the Australian Junior Country Cup. To be held in Albury in January, the tournament will feature the very best junior basketballers in Australia and New Zealand, with Alcheringa team mates Riley Mathews, Ryan Woods, and Shawn Clarke, all 12, selected. The tournament will mark the first time any of the youngsters will represent their State, with excitement levels high. 

All three basketballers had to undergo a long selection process to make it to this point, identified first locally, before travelling to Bendigo for weekly training and selection camps. Riley, Ryan, and Shawn joined a further nine Mildura-based basketballers to be selected for their age group sides, with the trio now spending their weeks training together in the lead-up to the event. The achievement for not just the boys, but for everyone involved in our junior program,” Alcheringa Basketball Club president, Garry Mathews, said. “The club has prided itself on the programs we have in place to help our young players develop and grow, and the selection of three of our under 14’s in an 10-man squad is a great result.” Garry said initiatives like the club’s mini-ball program – which aims to equip youngsters with the skills they need to excel in the game – and involvement in a number of Mildura Basketball Association programs had been the key to success. “The club had close to 200 mini-ball participants this year, with all three of these boys having progressed through that system,” he said. “It’s a great starting point, and a program we’re looking to continue to push in the future.”

This year has also seen the club implement a new scholarship program to aid those players who earn State selection, with $3000 to be made available each year. Funds have been made available through sponsorships, raffles, and other programs implemented by the club, with Riley, Ryan and Shawn to be the first recipients. “Each of the boys will receive $1000 – which will hopefully go toward covering any costs associated with the trip,” Garry said. “Our goal is to continue to set aside $3000 each season for potential State representatives, with being in a position to financially assist our players extremely important.”
