Bulldogs Junior Coaches Building Towards New Season

Preparations for the 2018/19 season are now well underway across the club.

The Bulldogs’ newly-established U13’s team began training last week at Skyliner, with Coach Seb Benford overseeing their first session. The team will be led this season by Coach Rob Fisher, who’s excited at the opportunities that lie ahead in a fledgling competition led by Colchester Basketball Club.

Coach Fisher said “I’m looking forward to getting these young Bulldogs ready to compete and represent the club."

"Having assisted both Arron and Seb for a season, this is a great opportunity for me to grow as a Coach and give back to both a sport and a club which means to much to me... I can’t wait to get started.” - Coach Rob Fisher

Coach Seb Benford will lead the older Junior section this year, with a joint U15/U17 Team, who’ll compete in friendly competition, whilst seeking as many games as they can, whilst training weekly at Skyliner on Sundays from 4:30-6:00pm.

Coach Benford said ”The growth across the Junior Teams last season meant it was the right time to make this change - for the benefit of the players across a wide age range, and also the club as a whole.

"I’m looking forward to working with the players again this season, and helping them along their path towards the Senior Teams.” - Coach Seb Benford
