Trophy Day Coverage 2015

Sunday 30 August Lang Park held it’s 2015 Trophy Day.
We welcomed long respected Lang Park member Mr Neil Hamilton-Smith as our favourite MC,
who took us straight into our Under 10 Trophy Presentations
2015 C'ship U10 Team presentations.
This year LP again had 4 teams in the U10 girls competition making up the largest club contingent in the competition.
The large contingent of U10 girls this year bodes well for the future and is due in large part to the excellent development program for young players which Sue mentioned earlier. Many of the U10 girls are also going on to play rep for BBI and as a result there will be at least 3 BBI rep teams this coming year, not long ago there was only one - fantastic
U10 Girls Lime team -coach Maxine Norsgaard
LP Lime had an exciting finish to the season with a nail-biting 1 point win over the Dragons.  Our girls realised yesterday that they are actually better players than they had been giving themselves credit for. The girls not only improved in their basketball skills this season, but they learnt and displayed sportsmanship and teammanship.  Win or lose, they are all full of smiles at the end of each game and training.  Each of them contribute 100 percent and I'm extremely proud of all of them. They would, however like the rules changed so that they can all be on the court for the entire 40 minutes - NO SUBS!!  Thanks to all our parents for your commitment and support
U10 Girls White – Rebecca Mackinnon
The U10 White team were made up of friends from St Ita’s Primary school. This was the second season for our girls and they did a fantastic job. ALL the girls love playing for Lang Park and taking part in the Green & Gold clinic (thanks Rob & Di!). Throughout the season each girl did a fantastic job of listening, trying their best.  The girl's enthusiasm was infectious and our families were all equally wonderful. Our team is looking forward to coming back again!
U10 Girls Green – James Walsh
The U10 Girls Green team had a fantastic year with continued development of their basketball skills throughout the year. The girls had a very successful season winning 14 out of a possible 16 games with all players managing to score points in some games. The girls also showed great enthusiasm both at training each week and during the games. The girls are to be commended for their excellent sportsmanship and contributions towards the team's goals each week. Well done girls
U10 Girls Gold – James Wood & Delyse Meng (assistant coach)
Working with the all the U10 girls this year was a lot of fun. The girls are full of life and energy. They were also a very competitive group who wanted to win. Focus for the year was simple skill development with lots of repetition and the girls were able to enjoy this aspect of learning the game. The girls all made significant improvements by applying themselves.  Most importantly, the girls really liked training and playing together and having a laugh.
Thank you to all the Under 10 girls for making it a fun year.
U10 Boys – Josh Mortensen
The lone under 10 boys team was an interesting mix of ages (7, 8 and 9 year olds), experience levels and personalities.
As you might expect it was a bit of a roller-coaster ride both on and off the court, but there were enough excellent games and some wins, punctuated with great team play, to keep the players and parents in good spirits, and the coach feeling like he was making progress.
All the boys improved over the course of the season and are looking forward to 2016.


The next presentations are the individual team awards in U12 to U18;
Most Valuable (MVP) OR Best Team Player
