Russell Hoops to Partner up with Ware Rebels Basketball Club
RUSSELL HOOPS is pleased to announce that they have partnered with WARE REBELS Basketball Club.
Ware Rebels was previously a very successful club that had junior teams at every age group as well as a Division 1 men’s team but unfortunately folded leaving the East Herts area with very little basketball action, especially at club level.
Russell Hoops founder (Ben Russell) and other ex-Ware Rebels’ players have decided to re-launch the Ware Rebels Basketball Club commencing for the 2012/13 season. They are starting with a National League Division 4 Men’s Team and a U15 National League Junior Team.
The club development plan is to have junior club teams at every age group within four years, with the focus of progressing the junior players into their men’s team. Also, the team committee at Ware Rebels have very ambitious plans; the Russell Hoops’ organisation plan to re-build the successful club that it was five years ago.
Russell Hoops is an organisation that goes into the community, local schools and colleges to coach. They look for the more serious players and invite them to their academy sessions where they develop the player’s skill set and understanding of the game which will put them in a better position to be recruited for club basketball.
With this new partnership now in place, Russell Hoops can provide talented players with a proffesional club, a great team of coaches and its support staff off the court.
Ware Rebels have already signed head coaches for the up-coming season for both teams: Thomas Guerrero taking the role for the Division 4 Men’s Team and Ben Russell as head coach for the U15 Team. They have also brought in a “strength and conditioning” coach, a nutritionist, two physiotherapists and a psychologist coach to help their athletes off the court.
Russell Hoops’ head coach, Ben Russell, had this to say:
“I am delighted that we have managed to not only re-launch Ware Rebels Basketball Club, they are also linked-in with Russell Hoops, thus securing the youth develoment in the community that is being targeted by them. Russell Hoops and Ware Rebels are best-placed with fantastic coaching and support staff, allowing them to carry themselves forward in the most proffesional way.”
Ware Rebels will be announcing very shortly when they are hosting their open try-outs for the u15 and Senior National League teams.
The Rebels are back!
