Grafton players head to titles

CONGRATULATIONS to Nicola Whitton and Kyam Shannon on their selection in the North Coast CHS teams.

They will now take part in the NSW CHS State Basketball Championships in May.

Nicola will go to Albury and Kyam to Bathurst, so we wish them both the best of luck.

A free beginner referees course will be held soon.

Sarah Mottram, NJL referees co-ordinator from Coffs Harbour will be conducting a free beginners referees course on next Monday, April 4 at 5pm.

Please bring your own whistle.

Meanwhile we had some mixed results in Tamworth.

Grafton’s 18-years boys, 14-years girls and 12-years girls travelled to Tamworth last weekend to compete in the first games of NJL for the Year, with the 18 boys and the 12 girls coming away with wins. It is only early days yet and there is big potential in all sides.

It was nice to see that the players all supported each other when they were not playing.

School holiday basketball fun is set to take off soon.

Levi will be running basketball skills and games days on Tuesday, April 12 and 19 at the Grafton Indoor Sports Centre from 9.30am-noon for 7-13 years.

No experience is necessary and cost is just $10.

For those interested, contact Levi on 6643 1188.

And finally, a reminder that the Grafton Vikings’ first home game against Ballina is on Sunday, April 10 at 11am.

I know we are all looking forward to that.
