Hervey Bay RSL supporting the community

BASKETBALL: The representative season for the Hervey Bay Hurricanes basketball usually sees the under 18s team play three Central District Carnivals in Bundaberg, Gladstone and Rockhampton, plus state championships between November and January.

With at least nine players, a coach, assistant coach and manager all travelling together, transport to the games is no easy feat, unless you have wheels like Digger – one of the RSL’s bold gold courtesy buses.

Being involved in sport keeps youth active, teaches teamwork and gives them an opportunity to make new friends, which is why the club is only too happy to help get the teams to competitions.

Team Manager Cindy Donald said being able to use the bus meant that the whole team could travel together and provide an opportunity for more diversity in the game by competing outside of the region.

“Out of town competitions allow experience playing against other teams from different areas, where they have the opportunity to also learn new playing techniques and strategies,” Cindy said.

“It also gives them desire to play better.

“We’re very grateful for the RSL’s help in getting the boys to their competitions.”

The club’s base is at the Hervey Bay PCYC but with a massive amount of kids already signing up for the winter season, the club will expand its play to the basketball courts in the Hervey Bay State High School sports hall.

Club games are played Wednesday (juniors to U18) and Thursday evening for men’s.
