Yes. We welcome girls to all programs.

We work on a ratio of 1 coach to 8 players

We welcome beginners of all ages.

Players are grouped initially by age and according to the information on the Program enrolment form which asks you to nominate your child’s playing status e.g. club, school, rep or beginner. You are also asked to indicate any friends who are attending and as long as they are of similar age and ability will be grouped with their friends.
Because of our small group sizes we usually have the flexibility to move players to different groups depending on their ability, but have found that ability within each group is usually diverse and that moving groups once we have started is unnecessary. However the players are instructed at the beginning of the program to speak to their coach and/or the program manager on the day if they are not happy or feel they belong in a different group.
