Redbacks continue Summer of Player Development

The Perth Basketball Association continues our off-season player development program during February with an invitation to all players to participate in specialised skills sessions at the Leisurelife Centre in Victoria Park.

These sessions are aimed at players of all levels (even if not currently playing in Redbacks domestic competitions or WABL) who would like to develop their game and also find out a bit more about Redbacks Basketball.

Sessions will be run by the coaches of the Redbacks SBL teams Narelle Henry and Nik Lakovic, and Perth Redbacks Womens Player Development Coordinator Stuart Budd and are aimed at exposing players to a high level of training and fundamental skills development.

It will also be a great opportunity for kids to develop their skills ahead of the Redbacks WABL tryouts which will be held on Sunday 17 February 2013.

Some of our Mens and Womens SBL players including current West Coast Waves player Rachel Lisch and current Perth Wildcat Mike Vigor,as well as former Wildcats Joel Wagner, Jarrad Prior and Justin Brown will be there to assist.

The Redbacks have already run successful development sessions throughout December and January for our WABL teams with a huge focus on our Womens program.

Redbacks are also finalising the planning of our popular WABL Kulin Development Camp where our WABL players spend a weekend together honing their basketball skills and getting to know kids from other age groups within our club.

For more information on how the Perth Redbacks can develop your basketball skills email the Perth Basketball Association Basketball WABL Director Mark Hughes – wabldirector@perthredbacks.asn.au.
