Dalby Herald - - SPORT -

BAS­KET­BALL: Ju­nior play­ers hit the court for the first time this sea­son as the new Dalby PCYC ju­nior bas­ket­ball sea­son ap­proaches.

Trial matches were played on Mon­day af­ter­noon, as the team got ac­cus­tom to their new team-mates and play­ing styles.

These matches also pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity for many play­ers to get rid of the cob­webs ahead of round one.

Dalby PCYC co-or­di­na­tor Kelly Sta­ple­ton said she was look­ing for­ward to a good sea­son.

“The com­pe­ti­tion is al­ways a lot of fun for the kids, and see­ing them in the prac­tice matches, there should be some good games played this sea­son,” she said.

“I am ex­pect­ing some close games which are highly com­pet­i­tive.

“This sea­son looks like one where any team on their day will be able to pick up a win, which makes it more fun and ex­cit­ing for the kids.”

The sea­son of­fi­cially be­gins next Mon­day af­ter­noon.
