Junior Coasters suited up and ready to go for rep season
THE Portland Basketball Association’s junior representative season kicked off with the jersey presentations on Sunday.
The junior Coasters will boast 12 representative teams across the under-12-18 age brackets, including four division two teams.
With junior Coasters numbers continuing to rise, committee member David Rogers said it was pleasing to see so many players wanting to play.
“We’re very happy, we’d like to have more if we could ideally; the amount of sides has been steady for several years,” Rogers said.
“We might have one or two different each year, but we seem to be fairly steady and there aren’t many kids who miss out on playing.
“There a few kids who are training partners for the under-12 boys and girls, they’re the really young players who may not be old enough, who are just going to train.”
