Hemel Storm coaching team already hard at work preparing for the new season


Everyone here at Storm recognise how difficult the past few months have been for our army of volunteers, fans and our wider families. We hope you are all doing OK.

It seems a long time since we communicated on matters of basketball. The repatriation of Greg and Mike back to the USA was incredibly 3 months ago but we are pleased to report that they and the other players of our 2019/20 roster remain fit and well.

Today we are delighted to announce that Dru Spinks and Michael Darlow have agreed to continue their coaching roles with us for the 2020/21 season.

Indeed for some weeks now, they have been in regular conference calls with Jon Burnell (Storm’s Director of Basketball) and Dane Frost (Storm’s Performance Analyst) where the preparations for next season are well underway and are gaining excellent momentum.

Whilst the return to play at all levels of basketball remains uncertain, we are actively in frequent discussions with our governing body Basketball England.  We are in constant communication with our commercial sponsors and we reserve a special note of thanks to them for their ongoing support. Whenever basketball returns, we’ll be ready.

We wanted to reassure you that despite the ongoing challenges that surround us all; our exciting immediate and future strategy is unaffected. We can’t wait to return to the best fans in the National League and provide you with the very best match night experience. We’ll be back soon with more news.
