Bundy shoots baskets
BUNDABERG Basketball Inc officials are beaming after the success of their inaugural School Holiday Clinic this week.
High-profile Bundaberg Radiology Bulls recruit Shane Davis, together with Bulls Head Coach Adam Curran and player Christian Kennedy and Bears players Emma Frawley, Kassy Mogg, Steph Rehbein and Paige Wharton, put more than 40 children through their paces for three hours each day.
Davis, who only relocated from Brisbane to Bundaberg last week, was impressed.
“It really has been great and the kids have had a ball – we had a few instances of kids coming through the door who really did not want to be here but they loved it and they have kept coming back, and that says something,” Davis said.
“The sessions started each day with warm-ups, then back to basics, then after a break, we have had team games of three on three and five on five, then we finished with a shooting championship.”
Awards were presented at the end with Dylan Rampant and Bryce Davis the Most Improved Junior and Senior respectively, and Best and Fairest Awards going to Demi Jenkins and Jane Lester.
Curran, who took time out from his holidays to co-ordinate the clinic, was also delighted.
“We had a whole family who had never played club basketball in their lives, but they saw the ad in the paper and came along, and we are very happy with our first camp and just have to keep building on it,” Curran said.
“We must also say a big thanks to Shalom for use of the venue and they have also been nice enough to accommodate us here when juniors start again with our stadium still under repairs after the floods.”
Davis will also do school visits throughout the year and lead further clinics during the April, June-July and September-October school holidays.
He will also conduct individual and group sessions.
