Trial Announced for Wildcats

Summer trainings, and the official trial date for the 2020 Wildcats have just been announced

Dene Robinson’s plan to get the 2020 Alloyfold Canterbury Wildcats Squad is beginning to take shape. Coach Robinson’s plan for summer will start with pre-season traning sessions, ahead of the official trial.

The pre-season trainings will commence Sunday 19 January, and will be open to all players interested in the Wildcats team proper, as well as potential Development Team players. These trainings continue on Sundays through to 23 February 2020, with the trial occurring the following weekend.

Dene Robinson advised that the program is “Open to all players interested in the  Women’s National Basketball League and/or the Development League team.

”The key aim is for players to turn up, meet and greet the coaching staff & other players to find out more.”


**UPDATE – Trial has been pushed back one week, and an extra Preseason session has been added**
