Taipans add bite to bas­ket­ballers

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

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.
