Reef Taplin, started with the Overport Allstars in Prep, 2014. Under the superior coaching of Coach Mike (Daniel and Genevieve Jone’s dad), Reef has developed his skills as an individual player and a team player.

This season, Reef was named the Overport Cavaliers team Captain. Coach Mike says, Reef has demonstrated advanced basketball techniques such as charge and screening stances. He has also shown leadership skills by supporting and encouraging his team mates on the court. Along with a keen basketball mind, these are skills he willingly shares to the benefit of our team, I made it official so the boys consider his guidance with confidence. This is why I chose Reef for Captain of Overport Cavaliers.

Reef says that it was scary when he started, he didn’t know how to play basketball or the game rules, but his Coach and the referees all helped to teach him and his team mates. Now, Reef loves to drive the ball and shoot to score, recently he has also been working on his defensive skills. Reef’s favourite part about playing basketball is playing with his team.

Congratulations Reef, great job!
