Young basketballers do their community proud



IN February the Bridgewater PCYC entered a team of young local boy’s into in the Moonah Basketball Association’s Men’s Sunday roster. These boys have been linked to the  PCYC for many years, and after participating  within the Youth Future’s Program, we decided to venture the boys out into the wider community.  In return a vast improvement in skills, knowledge and relations with other community member’s has taken place.

The successful PCYC team which won the Moonah Basketball Association’s C2 Division grand final.

The PCYC covered the boy’s registration with Devil Athletic jumping on board to sponsor the boys’ uniforms.  On Sunday July 14, the team played in the C2 Division grand final.  The final score was PCYC 44 to Legend Point’s 22.  A group of supporters and family members was on hand to witness the boys’ excellent win, with excellent teamwork and skill.

I consider myself to be lucky enough to have the opportunity to engage and work with these boys. I also must mention how proud I am of them all and look forward to working  together now and into the future.

The Live Life project has also recently been kick started. The PCYC has entered an indoor cricket side on the Eastern Shore and we anticipate future basketball, futsal, gymnastics, walking groups, as well as other opportunities will be instituted very soon within our municipality.
