Aden pas­sion­ate about game

Wanneroo Weekender - - Sport -

BAS­KET­BALL means more to Aden Moul­ten than sim­ply putting a ball through a hoop.

It’s also a form of ther­apy for the 13-year-old Cur­ram­bine res­i­dent when he’s feel­ing down.

And he wants oth­ers to see how bas­ket­ball and sport in gen­eral can make a sig­nif­i­cant dif­fer­ence to men­tal health.

“If I’m feel­ing down I head down to the bas­ket­ball club to spend time with peo­ple who share my pas­sion,” he said.

“I get some shots in and it re­minds me of all of my goals.

“If you have the love for the game, that is what will make you happy.

“Find a club that will sup­port you and lift your spir­its.”

Aden was full of praise for the club cul­ture at the Stir­ling

Se­na­tors, where he plays in the WABL com­pe­ti­tion, say­ing “I re­ally feel that I am part of some­thing great”.

He bases his game around Perth Wild­cats cap­tain Damian Martin both in at­ti­tude and game style.

“My dream is to hold the val­ues that Damian Martin has, he is a fan­tas­tic role model,” he said.

“He al­ways put in the work and he treats ev­ery­one as equals. “He is also driven to win.” He in a nom­i­nee in the Com­mu­nity News­pa­per Group’s Lo­cal Sports Stars awards.
