    Normal Training 

    When Restrictions are lifted our training venue will be:

    Sports Hall, University of Birmingham School, Weoley Park Road, Selly Oak, Birmingham B29 6QU.

    An announcement will be made when the Sports Hall is available. At present it is unuse as an auxiliary dining hall to promote social distancing during the Covid Pandemic.

    Normal training is during term time only. We may announce additional training during half terms and in the Summer Holidays.

    Your training session depends on your school Year and experience.

    Players may sometimes be asked or allowed to train with a different group on the grounds of experience and ability.
