Neve’s Journey and Love for Basketball:

Neve’s basketball journey with Sharks began when she was just seven years old, but from day 1 she was determined to excel and gave the game her all. In was in her first-ever game, that Neve broke her arm. But that didn’t stop her, as soon as the plaster was off, she was back on the court. Club coach Graeme Castle spotted her tenacity early on, and it wasn’t long before she was playing for both the U10 and U12 girls teams concurrently.

Over the past nine years, Neve has grown into a dynamic player, known for her skill, dedication, and team spirit. At the age of 14, Neve debuted in the Sharks Championship Women’s team, demonstrating her exceptional talent and earning her place among the club’s top players.

What Neve Loves About Basketball:

For Neve, basketball is more than just a sport – it’s a passion that fuels her every day. She loves the thrill of the game, the challenge of improving her skills, and the joy of competing. But what stands out the most for Neve is the friendships she has made along the way. “Basketball has given me some of my closest friends,” she says. “The support and camaraderie we share on and off the court are incredible. It’s like having a second family.”

Staying Active and Healthy:

Staying active is another aspect of basketball that Neve cherishes. The physical demands of the game keep her fit and healthy, while the mental challenges help her develop resilience and strategic thinking. “Playing basketball keeps me active and always pushes me to be better,” Neve explains. “It’s a great way to stay healthy and have fun at the same time.”
