Michela Nis­bet 9 Dou­glas Heat Bas­ket­ball

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

WHY did you start play­ing bas­ket­ball? Be­cause my friends started play­ing and it looked like fun. I de­cided I wanted to play too. How long have you been play­ing? About three months now. What po­si­tion do you want to play? I want to shoot for goal, that’s my favourite. Who is your favourite team mate? Vanessa. She is one of my best friends and we have known each other for about six years now. What is the best thing about bas­ket­ball? Get­ting to shoot goals. It is a re­ally fun sport to play and I get to see my friends. What is the worst? When peo­ple trip you up. Or when you are warm­ing up, the first per­son to five goals wins and some­times the other team will catch your ball and throw it away so that you can’t score. Can you bounce the ball be­tween your legs? Not yet, but hope­fully learn soon. What are your fu­ture goals for bas­ket­ball? To one day play for the Cairns Dol­phins. How do you train? We prac­tise shoot­ing and we drib­ble the ball around chairs and shoot goals at each end. Why should peo­ple play bas­ket­ball? Be­cause you get fit and it is alot of fun. Do you play any other sports and if so which one do you like best? I also play net­ball and do gym­nas­tics. I think net­ball is prob­a­bly my favourite but it is a bit sim­i­lar to bas­ket­ball.
