Players Corner: 2017/2018.. Hatters Season is back Yall!

Posted by:

Welcome to the Sheffield Hatters 2017/18 Womens Basketball season! All of our girls are finally in town, team practice has begun, and were preparing for what will hopefully be the most exciting season yet!

This year is especially exciting because we have a new team blogger on the scene, and as we proceed to give you what you need, I have to tell you that our movement doesn’t move without the support of you, our exclusive Hatters family!

My name is Gianna Woods, this is my first year with the Hatters family, and Im so excited to see what we create together this upcoming season. Just a little something about myself, because I want everyone to know that I truly come in peace. (did you get the reference? Step your movie game up 😊 )

Born in California, USA I’m from a small town in Los Angeles called Compton. If you’ve heard of Compton, what’s up? If not, please tell me you’ve heard of Los Angeles because if not, I just need for us to meet in person because we’ve got a lot to talk about 😉 . I’m 27 years young, having previously played basketball internationally in Brazil, Peru, Australia, Spain and a short time in Finland. This is my first time traveling AND playing in the UK, and I’m really excited to add my talents to the organization both on and off the court, I feel that there is so much to learn from living in Sheffield, and I am so estatic to meet the families that make this club the force that it is. Apart from basketball I am a certified Reiki Level 1 practitioner, so If you are looking for an alternative form of physical and psychological therapy I’m your girl to see. This is more so geared towards parents looking for a little TLC and relaxation time, I know how crazy and hectic things can be between handling work, family duties, and running your sweet little monster children around their afternoon activities! We all need a little “me” time so if you’re interested in a Reiki session, or just want to talk, just think of me as your holistic therapist 😊

I am very excited to see more of Sheffield and I’m excited to take you guys deeper into the lives of our Sheffield Hatters Womens’ basketball program, with so many people from different backgrounds and lifestyles its going to be fun to show you the different layers of our players and staff, hopefully bringing us all closer through sharing our crazy trials and tribulations we call life.

Looking forward to more blog posts? Have a topic you’d like me to address/ explore? Let me know! You can also find me on Instagram/ King_g_me, as well as on Twitter under the same handle king_g_me. I’ve got so much more to share with you, are you ready?
