A COACH from America, possible State League return and a side through to the Australian under 14 club championships.

It’s been a busy few weeks for Taree Basketball.

Steve Atkins has been heavily involved in basketball’s resurgence, especially with the signing of Lonnie Funderburke as player-coach for the next two years. Taree hope Funderburke will lead the association back to the State League after an absence of more than two decades.

There have also been improvements to the Saxby’s Stadium while the association hopes to get State government monies to expand the facility – a move Steve says will benefit basketball, other sports and the community.

He’s the guest on Friday Sport on the Manning River Times Facebook page on Friday August 17 where he’ll discuss all things basketball with Mick McDonald from 11.30.
