YOUNG NORTH Canterbury
basketballers seized a chance to
get a few tips from the Breakers
point guard -- and former
Australian international player
-- CJ Bruton.
Players from the association s
under-17 boys side were invited
to attend the coaching clinic,
which was run by the National
Basketball League professional
at Christchurch Boys High
School. They were part of a

Canterbury representatives --

Association president Caroline
Whittaker said a new committee
recently installed at the helm of
the organisation sought to bring
more opportunities of this type
to its members, especially the
girls, providing them with
exposure to positive role models
within the sport .
She said the boys came away
feeling energised and uplifted
from the two-hour session.
Summer's sorted at local pool
By CATE BROUGHTON
PRIME MINISTER John Key will
officially open the new and improved
Kaiapoi Aquatic Centre on Friday.
It was business as usual at the
new facility when the Northern
Outlook popped in to sneak a peak at
the re-opened pools on Monday.
Most of the parents watching their
children s lessons gave the revamped
pool the thumbs up.
A $1.1 million grant for the rebuild
came from the Prime Minister s
Christchurch Earthquake Appeal
Trust and was announced in June
2012. This, combined with an
insurance payout, made up the
majority of the total $4.3 million bill.
Megan Herriott from Kaiapoi said
she was impressed with the work,
and relieved to have the pool back.
It s just amazing to have it back
because its all so clean and fresh and
new -- it s fabulous.
Ms Herriott said she had been tak-
ing her daughters to Rangiora for
lessons for the last year.
The opening will make life easier
for many residents, parent John
We re really looking forward to
summer now. It will be great.
Others, such as Stephanie Carter
from Woodend, had mixed feelings.
It s good, but it would be good if
they had more of a play area,
because there s not much for them to
do after the lesson. That said, it s
Kaiapoi man Dean Towart said he
was a bit disappointed.
It s the same as what it was. You
wouldn t bring your kids here on the
weekend, you would take them to
Rangiora because they have a spa
and the lazy river.
Sharon Prebble from Kaiapoi
brings her three boys to swimming
lessons each week and said she was
glad to have a local facility back up
It would have been nice if they
could put another pool in, but you
can t complain. It s really good to
have it back.
The complex includes a 25-metre,
6-lane main pool; a learners pool
with a waterfall through to a todd-
lers pool; and a hydrotherapy pool.
Aquarobics, aquajogging, lane
swimming and swimming lessons
will be available, and the pool will be
open seven days a week.
Entry prices are $2.50 for children
and $5.10 for adults.
Residents have been invited to
celebrate the pool s re-opening at
a special event on Saturday, from
10am to 5pm, which will include
free swimming, games, giveaways,
entertainment and much more .
