Basketball Manawatu October Update

WHOLE OF BASKETBALL VISION - To be the sport of choice in the Manawatu
 

OCTOBER 2018

WOW - What a busy 3 months of Basketball we have had!

August saw the close of the 2018 NBL Season, U23 National Championships in Porirua and we welcomed Steven Adams and the Sports Pathways team to Palmy for his first ever Steven Adams High School Invitational, SOLD out Steven Adams Camp, and a very special opening of the awesome court at Raleigh Street Reserve in Awapuni.

September and October went by in a flash with rounding out the 2018 Winter Competitions and Representative season sending a great group of players and referees to the U13 Central Regional Championships. Before shifting the focus to the delivery of the Schick Premierships AA Zone 3
and the 2018 A & AA Schick Championships here in Palmerston North. 
(A full update on the Schick Cup, Premierships and Championships will be sent out next week)

Not to mention delivery of the Feilding 3x3 Primary Slam, Kiwi Hoops "Come and Try" Bounce series and a successful Kiwi Hoops Referee Beginners Course for over 35 Junior Referees!
