Semi final just around the corner

Two Rivers Basketball Association News

How quickly the year goes and we find ourselves with only a few weeks left in the 2014 summer basketball season.

In our younger competition, we have five teams with only one game separating the three teams vying for third and fourth positions before the finals commence.

Rockets and Flames have proven to be strong teams with a blend of experience and new players and have set up a strong position, first and second, on the premiership table and are due to meet in the second semifinal.

Hawks and Lightning Bolts will meet in the second semifinal as Lions recently had a bye.

In the older competition, Titans and KAOS are setting the pace and will meet in the first semi final, while Slammers and Wildcats are hoping to upset the favourites.

DP Boyz, The Mixers and Xavier Riot have all had their moments but have not been able to be consistent, due largely to the numbers of new players introduced into their teams

Our finals commence on Monday June 16 with semi finals.

The grand final will be two weeks later on June 30.

At Two Rivers Basketball Association, our vision is to:

• provide a safe, supportive and positive environment for under 19 boys and girls to learn the skills of the game

• promote and develop sportsmanship, effective communication skills, positive attitudes, improve self-esteem, good decision making under pressure, emotional control and self-evaluation.

• provide a pathway to play basketball when players leave the Hoops 4 Life program

• maintain strong positive relationships with Central District Lions Basketball Club

We have developed the Hoops 4 Life program to focus on this vision.

The spring season commences on Monday July 21.

Anyone interested in basketball should contact Paul Schmelzkopf on 0414 248 732 for further information.
