Coffs Suns U14 Basketball Team

WHAT HAVE YOUR ACHIEVEMENTS BEEN SO FAR?

The U14 Women’s Team have made it through the Northern Junior League undefeated. They won the Northern Junior League Grand final, which has qualified them to participate in the State Cup on August 10th and 11th at Minto Sports Stadium. This will see them vie for the title of State Cup Champions taking on the best of the States country and metro teams.

WHY DID YOU APPLY FOR THIS GRANT?

We have applied for the Grant to help subsidise our game fees ($85 per game played) and Accommodation costs. At the end of a five tournament series that has seen the team travel to Tamworth (twice) and Port Macquarie (twice) any support to attend this Tournament would go along way.

HOW WILL THIS GRANT BENEFIT YOU? AND HOW DO YOU PLAN ON USING IT?

Only Team expenses have been targeted for this funding so each child will benefit from the Sponsorship ie. Game Fees (guaranteed 3 games) and Accommodation costs. 

WHAT ARE YOU HOPES AND DREAMS FOR THE FUTURE?

It is a fabulous opportunity for the girls to be involved in a Tournament of this level. As a Team they have formed a fabulous bond that will see them continue friendships through years to come. They as a team have shown that dedication and hard work can pay off. A win in Minto would just be the icing on the cake – following what has been a fantastic season.

WHO INSPIRES YOU THE MOST?

When I think about this team – I think about the countless hours that go into Coaching the girls ( thanks Elliott ), Managing the team (thanks Angie) and the fact that these 10 girls have stuck at it all year – So the inspiration is the teams dedication and hard work ethic.
