Team members came from Brisbane, Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast, the team trained over a period of 6 weeks to prepare for the Nunawading Tournament. The Tournament comprised of teams from all over Australia and it was a great experience for all of the boys to play with and against some of the best basketballers in Australia in their age group.
