Ligue Féminine 2
SO Armentières 2011-2012 roster


Before SO Armentières were promoted into the Ligue Féminine de Baseketball (LFB) in 2009, they had a history of running the club as a family with a steady roster of players.

After two difficult seasons the club has returned back to its old philosophy by bringing back players that they know and promoting players from the region.

Stéphane Lalart returns to the coaching seat after six months of General Manager. Lalart stepped down as head coach in November 2010 and his then assistant Abdel Bellouni took over.

In April 2011 it was announced that Lalart would resume his role of head coach for the coming season. Lalart took the club all the way from NF2 to the LFB during his first reign of head coach. Bellouni refused the offer to remain as assistant and had left the club.

Instead Marc Antoine Verini is working as assistant while continuing his role as coach to Armentières' third senior women's team in the regional championship.
