Summer 2018/2019

Teams are now announced. Please go to our teams page.

Note that not all teams have coaches or team managers finalised, you will receive an email closer to the season start with this information.  If you or a family member would like to assist with these positions please let us know. We will be providing additional coaching and resources to assist our coaches. We also hope to bring some past or older junior players through this training, so please if you love the sport, or love being involved in a sport your child loves let us know.

Coach volunteers please email scorpionscoaches@gmail.com
Team Manager volunteers please email scorpionsteammanagers@gmail.com

These positions are vital to ensuring that the children whom play in the Scorpions uniform have fun, learn and develop as players.
