Who are you? What is your involvement in basketball?
My name is Jen Dickson and I participate in the women’s PickUp social session at Dunfermline Reign Basketball Club. I started going to the sessions when they started up as I had played at school and was looking to get back into a sport that I enjoyed and to help with weight loss and getting fitter.
Why do you play? What motivates you to keep doing it?
As a parent to two I felt that I couldn’t keep up with them and was struggling to find the motivation to go to the gym. The social sessions have been incredible and I have met some good friends in the process!
Tell us about a female role model who has inspired you?
Laura Kirk and Jeni Matson have been amazing coaches and role models and no matter your ability, age or fitness level, they make the sessions fun and enjoyable!
