Hoops and hip hop to hit PCYC
IT is what Celtics basketballer Anthony Parry wanted when he was at school, and what US product Aaron Wade used to set up his life.
A revamped three-on-three basketball competition, starting next Friday at the Bundaberg PCYC, will provide opportunities for children at risk to blossom.
Compton-born Wade grabbed hold of the sport he loved, going on to be long-time player coach of the Cairns Marlins.
“In 100 ways I was like these kids when I was young, and hopefully I can provide that leadership and education they need to make something of their lives,” the former Bundaberg Bulls coach said.
The tournament will run alongside a hip-hop dance workshop put together by instructor Tam Dang.
Anyone interested in playing or dancing should be at the PCYC next Friday at 5pm, or call Mr Parry on 415 3423 or 4153 2731.
