19th December - Coaching for L1 Coaches & L1 Coaching Courses
The Couny recently provided a session on the 15th December at the Triangle Burgess Hill for L1 Coaches in respect of how they should structure and carry out coaching sessions for their Clubs/Leagues, and in particular how to approach different style of play. It was organised by Maureen Hazell and led by Marc Burman and there has been good feedback. A L1 Coaching Course was held earlier this season hosted by Hastings League and many of the attendees were from that Course (another L1 Coaching Course is being hosted by Brighton City in the New Year - see news item 5th December).
9th December, 2019 - JBL - County Coaching Support
The County is providing support, arranged by Maureen Hazell the County Coaching Secretary, to the County top Juniors in two JBL Teams and they played their first matches at the Derby Arena on the 2nd/3rd November. Playing for the first team in Division 1 of Group 1 were Jacob Evans (ranked 36), Fraser Kent (ranked 46) and Owen Brown (ranked 50) and their division was tough and despite plenty of good individual performances they manged one draw and lost their other matches and are currently last with two Irish Teams topping the table. Jacob won 50%, Owen 40% and Fraser 10% with many matches lost 4-2 and there is much scope to pick up points in the next round. Further details can be found on the following link:
The second team, consisting of John Strang (ranked 64), Jamar McGlashan (ranked 66) and Will Michell (ranked 113) playing in Division 4 Group 1 had excellent results ending up top of their Division. John had 60% and both Jamar and Will managed 70%, and the team looks on track for silverware if they keep up performance in the next round. Again further details can be found on the following link
Coaching both teams for the County over the weekend were Jack Bennett and George Hazell and both are top Sussex Players within the top 50 ranked players in England. The second weekend is scheduled for the 7th and 8th March.
