Feb 2011 - YMCA Starts Basketball Coaching Sessions for Girls Only


The YMCA Torbay Tigers Basketball Club has started basketball sessions specifically aimed at girls. These sessions takes place at the YMCA in Dartmouth Road, Clennon Valley, Paignton TQ4 6NX, on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 – 9.00pm



Initially the aim is to promote the game of basketball for girls in the Torbay area, and to introduce them to the enjoyment of playing this sport.


Currently all training sessions at the YMCA are open to all young people of either gender and there is no intention to change this.


We are bringing in qualified female coaches to take the sessions. One of them is Gail Tranter who has an Australian coaching qualification.  Gail’s two daughters are qualified at Level 1 and already train with the lads on Thursdays. Unfortunately they are unable to play in competitions alongside the boys due to England Basketball and FIBA rules. Also likely to assist is Zoe Carter from Paignton Community and Sport College who is currently pursuing her Level 2 Coaching award.


Basketball at YMCA South Devon originally started at the YMCA in the late 1980’s – early 1990’s run by youth worker Keeley Colby  and local referee Dick Hammond. Dick ran a Torquay Ladies Basketball team and Keeley played in the team.  Other female coaches who have come through the Torbay Tigers coaching programme have assisted with the YMCA Torbay Tigers National League teams, or have moved on to table officiating.


The club was awarded the coveted Clubmark status in August 2007 and its coaches and administrators all undergo CRB checks.


Those interested in playing basketball please turn up at the specified session venue and time, or, for further information, contact Sue at the YMCA on 01803 551578
