Following last year’s successful community outreach program, Nexus is once again supporting the Toowoomba Basketball Association (TBA) and Armstrong Auto Group Positive Choice through Basketball School Clinics with 2017 player sponsorship.

Nexus Project Director Jose Antonio Sanchez said Nexus was pleased to bring USA import, Ezria Parsons to the Clive Berghofer Toowoomba Mountaineers for the upcoming season.

“As a former star of Toowoomba’s own Queensland Basketball League (QBL) team, Ezria is no stranger to the region and will play an integral part in not only the Lady Mountaineers’ new season hopes, but in taking basketball clinics to local schools,” he said.

“Around 4,000 students attended clinics across the Darling Downs last year, with numbers set to grow in 2017.”

School-based basketball clinics are designed to give local school students the opportunity to learn new skills in an environment that promotes good life choices, teamwork and an active lifestyle.

“Last year, the TBA hosted 34 basketball clinics to educate school students on good life choices and we’re very pleased to bring Ezria to the Mountaineers and help facilitate even more clinics this year,” Mr Sanchez said.

“Nexus is also giving each student who participates in a clinic a free family pass to a home game of their choice to support the Mountaineers and TBA.”

The 2017 basketball season kicks off during the last weekend in April 2017. Visit http://toowoombabasketball.com.au/ for more information.
