Bas­ket­ballers gear up for new sea­son

Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - Sport -

AS win­ter sports come to a close, the Man­jimup Am­a­teur Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion be­gins its sea­son next week.

The se­nior bas­ket­ball sea­son starts on Mon­day and the ju­niors fol­low soon after.

In the se­nior men’s side there are about 14 teams across the A, A re­serves and B di­vi­sions.

Se­nior men’s co­or­di­na­tor Michael Vel­lios said that num­ber was about the same as re­cent years.

“It’s not too late to join and from a cer­tain age, ju­niors can play up in se­niors if they’d like,” he said.

“It’s a fun team sport to play, it’s not a hard game to pick up and it’s some­thing that can eas­ily be taught.”

Vel­lios thanked the other as­so­ci­a­tion com­mit­tee mem­bers for their hard work prior to the start of the sea­son.

“With­out a com­mit­tee there’s no com­pe­ti­tion, there’s a lot of work that goes on in the off-sea­son,” he said.
