BASKETBALL Victoria Country’s elite junior basketball pathway for 2018 will start up in October with trials for our elite teams and programs.
Trials for BVC’s National Intensive Training Program (NITP), Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup (ACJBC) and Victoria Country under 16 and 18 state teams is set for 2-3 October at the Shepparton Basketball Stadium.
These trials will help our country coaches and staff determine the Victoria Country teams heading into 2018. With the recent gold medal triumph of our Victoria Country U18 Girls and silver medal success for our Victoria Country U16 Girls, the program is in a strong position and we’re always on the lookout for the next generation of star country Victorians.
Country High Performance Coach Justin Schueller said the trials start our championship preparations and are important for any junior athlete looking to excel in the sport in 2018.
“This is the most important part of our High Performance calendar as the trials are the starting point to the following year’s National championships and Australian representatives,” Schueller said. “Those athletes that get selected will benefit from our weekly training environment through our satellite centres around Country Victoria and then have the chance to represent the state at a National Championship following Country Cup.
“It’s a great pathway and one that helped Victoria Country win a gold and silver medal at this year’s national tournaments.
“There are a lot of Country Vic athletes doing well on the international and national stage and all of them have gone through this pathway as it’s a key component for the athletes’ development and future success.
“I can’t wait to see the improvement in athletes we know and also finding some new talent throughout the trials.”
