Brisbane Capitals D League Men Coach Appointed

Michael Van Dongen will lead the Brisbane Capitals D League Men in 2013. A name synonymous with basketball in Brisbane will return to representative duties with the Caps and look to get the young talent coming from a very strong junior male program ready for senior basketball.

Van Dongen who has a long list of credentials including several years involved at the QBL level, will look to impart that knowledge and experience on a group of young men with great potential. With a number of players looking to make a return this year to D League and several players graduating from the junior ranks the Caps team for 2013 looks to be extremely talented.

Under the guise of QBL Men’s Coach Geoff Tarrant, the Caps D League team will be built on the same core focus of defense, discipline and an up tempo style of basketball, something which Van Dongen is very renowned for.

With trials starting on Saturday, January 12th at NAB Stadium, Auchenflower from 2pm-5pm, all players looking to be considered for the 2013 Brisbane Capitals QBL or D League Men’s teams are required to attend the trial or email registering your interest.
