The Suncoast Spinners Wheelchair Sports Club has organised a special closed training session for girls on Saturday at the PCYC in Murgon.

The not-for-profit sporting association is hosting a session of the National Junior Women’s wheelchair basketball program.

The morning will include a private training session where 15-year-old Taylor Peterson from Kingaroy will get the opportunity to train alongside Australian Under 25 Squad member Emerald Wilmshurst.

The South Burnett players will also join other young women from around Australia for skills training via videolink with national coaches, including Australian women’s junior head coach Janna Mizens.

“Bringing the program to Murgon means Taylor can also have access to specialised training and development, outside the Spinners regular social program,” Suncoast Spinners coach Michael Oxley said.

After the morning training session, the girls will also take part in the Suncoast Spinners’ regular social wheelchair basketball program at the Murgon PCYC.
