The third and fourth teams train together and in what is known as the black squad, making it easy for players make the transition between the two teams. Training for all teams takes place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings with a prompt 7pm start. Most matches are held on a Saturday afternoon. We find this schedule works well as we can achieve a lot and cover a fair amount of work, with a schedule that is not overly demanding for the players. New players are always welcome, a assessment will be made to place you in either the gold or black squads. You can either just turn up or contact us via our roles page. The first few sessions are free,we will then ask you to purchase your membership for the season.

We have also established number of links with nutritionist's and dietitian's where more support is given to players about diet, the right and wrong things to eat, the right times to eat, hydration, and so on. We are sure that this dedication off the field will turn itself into wins on match-day.
