BBNZ IDENTIFY U14 CLUB MEMBERS FOR CAMP
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR CLUB MEMBERS
SPENCER CARR & LACHLAN FINEFEUIAKI
who have both been selected for the 2020 BBNZ U14 NATIONAL TALENT DEVELOPMENT CAMP at Tui Ridge Park in April this year.
Also in attendance, will be Eastern Basketball Coach Bernadette.
This is a amazing opportunity for both players as the BBNZ U14 Development Camp is the starting point to the National Talent Programme and is set up to assist in the building of the depth and quality of our athletes coming through the pathway. These athletes are then fed into our National teams’ programme, which begins at the under 16 level. The camp environment will expose the athletes to the challenge of learning, adapting and understanding the standards of higher-level basketball.
