Basketball bonus for athletes and coach

 

MWAS athlete scholarship holders Emma Bourke and Alex Ducas were selected into the U/16 WA Country teams for Basketball, along with fellow Mid West athletes Gemma Dix and Max Murphy.Selection resulted from a series of four trials and was “a just reward for the extra sessions and commitment to training made by each of these players” according to Coach Aaron Ducas. Aaron, who is a scholarship holder in the MWAS Coaching Effectiveness Program, was also selected to the Assistant Coach role with the team. This follows two years as an assistant with the U/18 WA Country team and shows a continued recognition of the basketball talent existing in the Mid West.
