Christmas Party
Bray Emmets changed venue for our end of season party with over 120 kids attending bray bowl on Friday night for bowling, quasar, pool and games. The kids all had a great night and was great to see the age groups coming together for such a fun night. We would like to thank all coaches, mentors and parents for putting so much of their valuable time into helping these kids become the players of the future.

From all the coaches in Bray Emmets we would like to wish all our kids and their families a very happy Christmas and a prosperous new year and will see you all in the near future.
