St Clair Region has Formed a New Ladies Team and will Compete in JUEL
Friday January 4, 2013

St. Clair Region has formed a new team that will compete in the Ontario Junior Elite League (JUEL).  The Ontario JUEL League features the best 18 U19 Ladies teams in Ontario.


The St Clair Regional Team is made up of players from Chatham, Windsor, Tecumseh, Sarnia, Wallaceburg and Dresden. The team will feature three students from Sarnia. (see roster below) The team is Coached by Nicole Green (Chatham) and Paul Levac (Windsor) - with Carrie Carleton (Chatham), Ken Dunbar (Windsor) and Diane Robbins (Chatham) as Assistant Coaches. Each coach has a specific function in the development and conditioning of the team.


St Clair Region applied for a franchise in the JUEL League and was granted a one year conditional franchise in the League. The franchise is conditional upon the team being competitive in the league and also being able to build a competitive franchise year after year by developing players through their affiliated club teams.


The St Clair Regional Team has been training since the end of the high school basketball season and OFSSA Championships. Working primarily out of Chatham but will move practices throughout the St Clair Region as gym availability allows. St Clair will be hosting a JUEL Competition Weekend this year at the St Clair College Wellness Centre Gym in Chatham.


St Clair plays their first scrimmage on Friday January 4th at Detroit Country Day School in Michigan. Ranked 1443 in the USA – Country Day is a regional powerhouse known throughout the state for very fast and highly skilled teams. They annually send players to major Division 1 schools throughout the USA.  This will be a good first test for the St Clair girls.


Next exhibition Game will be Tuesday January 8th against the London Ramblers Juel Team. This will also will be a good test for St Clair as last year London went through the entire season undefeated until the final game of the championship where they lost to a very talented North Toronto Huskie team.


On Saturday January 12th there will be three JUEL teams in Chatham playing several exhibition games at the St Clair College Wellness Centre Gym. The St Clair Region will be hosting the Windsor Valiants and the Blessed Sacrement Foxtrotters.


The Official JUEL Exhibition Season starts January 18 – 20th in Kitchener / Cambridge – that will see St Clair play two exhibition games and one league game.
