Hemel Storm to launch partnership with West Herts Warriors
We are very pleased to announce that we have formed a partnership with West Herts Warriors (WHW), a club based in Watford that fields junior teams in the U14, U16 and U18 age groups.
Storm believes that this collaboration, alongside others that will shortly be announced, will allow Hemel based juniors and young adults a true development pathway towards the ultimate opportunity of representing Hemel Storm or Hemel Storm II.
West Herts Warriors Chairman Derek McIntosh “We are very excited at the opportunity of working with Storm. With this in place our players will now have a pathway to play at the highest level. We have had some great meetings over the summer to launch this exciting new project. I am delighted that a pathway has now been created for juniors across the Hemel and Watford area.
The previous season saw Storm launch a 16-18 age development programme and this will now be extended within the new partnership. The group will be offered the chance to train in Hemel but have competitive basketball opportunities with West Herts Warriors. Further announcements to follow.
Storm Director of Basketball Jon Burnell “We are delighted to be working with Derek. This new partnership creates player pathways for locally based talent, giving players access to Storm’s NBL programme."
