Chance for talented players to get selected

BASKETBALL: Gladstone Port City Power are having a try-out for their senior Queensland Basketball League women's team today at Kev Broome Stadium.

Power coach Ray Cooper encourages female basketball players 16 years and over to come and do a one-hour training session from 5.30-6.30pm.

"Every QBL club have try-outs obviously because there might be some talent around that we do not know about,” Cooper said.

"People can come in and train, but I have no idea who they will be.

"There could be some women in town from Bundaberg or Rockhampton who have played basketball and want to have a go again.”

Gladstone Power have been boosted with the key signings of Cassie Rochel and Tabatha Richardson-Smith, along with the re-signing of emerging Kiah Guinea.

Cooper said he hoped to identify more local talent.

"It would be nice to have a maximum roster of 15 players,” he said.

"It's just so that we can cover if there are any injuries or for some of the girls who will be arriving late.

"I'm just after someone who can just come on and play a role in the team and who is happy to do that.”

Meanwhile the Power men's team will be holding a pre-season camp this weekend. Gun recruit Will Shackleford will take part.

There will be two sessions tomorrow, with the first between 1-3pm and then later from 6-8pm.

Sunday's session is from 9-11am.

Joining "Shack” in the camp will be Remy Lawyer, Ray Willis, Troy Robinson, Chris Tucker and youngsters Dylan Owen, Mitch Knight, Boti Hajos and Declan King.
