The Perth Wildcats have returned home from the second part of its 2017 Regional Tour.
Having spent time in Geraldton and Dongara at the beginning of the month, it was the South West’s turn to be visited by Wildcats coaches and players, with stays in Waroona and Bunbury as well as wheatbelt towns Katanning and Narrogin on the itinerary.
Over the five-day road trip, the Wildcats visited eight primary schools, five high schools and ran six two-hour coaching clinics.
Players also visited two aged care facilities, the Bunbury Regional Hospital and spent time shooting hoops with all inclusive sports organisation WA iSports.
Captain Damian Martin, Greg Hire, Jesse Wagstaff, Angus Brandt, Rhys Vague, Mason Bragg and Corban Wroe were all on the trip – plus coach staff member Jacob Chance.
Wagstaff said the whole group enjoy the opportunity to get out and about in WA.
“It’s great to get out and see the kids who don’t often get the chance to come up to Perth and see the Wildcats to play,” said Wagstaff.
“We try to teach them a few things, but mostly it’s just about having fun and a good experience.”
The Perth Wildcats 2017 Regional Tour takes a break this weekend before heading all the way to Broome the following week, and then closing out the month in the state’s Great Southern region.
