Local Students get Championship tips from the NBL's best


Sixty excited Bassendean Primary students took part in Hawaiian’s community program having a two hour skills session with this season’s 2015-2016 NBL champions, Perth Wildcats players, Greg Hire and Jesse Wagstaff.

 As part of Hawaiian’s commitment to the Bassendean community, students were given the opportunity to engage in multiple activities that focused on upskilling their already existent talent.

 Hire and Wagstaff took the students through a series of drills that focused on speed, precision and reaction times. Students then had the opportunity chat and have photos with the two fan favourites.

 Participant Monique Reis said that the incursion made her day, saying the best part was “Having fun with my friends, meeting the [Perth] Wildcats players and playing a game of golden child.”
