The Winter 2020 season will see the introduction of Bobcats PLUS. An optional add-on to choose for your team to have a paid coach or for your child to play domestic basketball under a paid coach. You may choose as a team to all select this option and register this with Bobcats HQ via email prior to registration opening so we can select the best coach available for your team. Alternatively, you may choose to elect to possibly move into a new team as of Winter 2020. The complete coaching roster will be announced over the next few weeks along with the age groups & divisions they will be available to coach.
The Bobcats PLUS program will be an additional cost of $140 per season (around $7 per week) on top of regular registration for your child to receive professional coaching in both training and games.
More details will be released as we near registration opening dates but in the meantime if you have any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Teams are currently being finalised and all notifications will be sent out next week regarding team, coach and payment.
