Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - JOIN A CLUB -

FOR the young bas­ket­ballers in the re­gion, train­ing starts up again this week at the Port Dou­glas Basketball Club.

This year is see­ing a change up on train­ing times. The 6-10 year olds will now train on a Satur­day morn­ing and the club hope to in­tro­duce the na­tional OzHoops pro­gram, a na­tional kids basketball pro­gram aimed at fun and fit­ness while learn­ing how to play.

The first sign-on day for this age group is Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 8, at 9am.

The 11-14 year olds will con­tinue to train on Wed­nes­day af­ter­noons from 4pm with their first sign-on day tak­ing place yes­ter­day. Not to worry if you missed it, the club will run the sign-on ses­sions for an­other cou­ple of weeks yet.

All boys and girls be­tween these ages are wel­come to at­tend and have a go, keep fit and have fun. In an at­tempt to kick start the older play­ers’ ca­reers and give them valu­able skills, the com­mit­tee plan to en­ter Dou­glas Heat squads into the Mul­grave com­pe­ti­tion on Fri­days.
