Chris

Hi, my name is Chris Saldez. My family and I recently moved from Hervey Bay back to North Brisbane after being away for four and a half years and it's great to be back home. I am lucky to be a proud father of three children, two boys and a girl aged 14, 12 and 10. They all share my passion for basketball, my two boys are Division 1 players for North Lakes Hawks and also play up an age division and my daughters' team is currently undefeated. Basketball has always been a big part of my life - whether it's playing, coaching or administrating - it has always been a great way of breaking down barriers and meeting new people as well as having fun.
