Taipans add bite to basketballers
LAST Wednesday night saw the end of the Junior Mossman Basketball season with a visit from the Cairns Taipans Development players.
Dwayne Vale along with James Comino and Matthew Adekponya took the 40 kids through some drills which involved basic skills and some fun stuff to finish the season on a high. Dwayne has NBL experience with the Taipans and both James and Matt are in the training squad and hoping to one day make their marks as NBL players. Their experience was very valuable for the kids.
All the young playing crew received a trophy for their efforts throughout the two terms and the head coach Steve Hull were happy to extend the “Coaches Encouragement Awards” to four of the kids who worked really hard - Trent Day, Mitchell Hoye, Cian Danskin and Jasmin Faichney.
If you would like your child to get involved in the sport please contact club president Kraig Byrne on 0437 088 007.
