Bree Mellberg

Kilsyth Cobras DOB: 14 April 1990 Class: 3.5 Position: Number:




A Junior World Champion in diving, Mellberg suffered an accident on a trampoline that left her wheelchair-bound but with one opportunity closing, another opened as she entered the sport of wheelchair basketball.

Mellberg’s path to selection with the Gliders began in 2015 where at a tournament in Sydney, she caught the attention of scouts.

She won the up-and-coming Glider award and then continued her development in Bendigo before joining the Kilsyth Cobras in the WNWBL.

Her performances in that league earned a spot with the national team and she toured Europe for the World Super and Continental Clash where she helped the Gliders claim a pair of bronze medals.
