South East Regional Academy of Sport Inc adds Basketball Squad

South East Regional Academy of Sport is to introduce Basketball as a new squad program for 2010.

Only 2 local junior basketballers were lucky enough to secure Country Energy individual scholarships in 2009 - Darcy Harding and Bronte Armtrong (rising star program). The new squad program will give the oportunity for more basketballers in the region to gain access to high level coaching and competition.

The SEARS Board of Directors inducted the sport of basketball on the recommendation from the SERAS Sports Committee at their meeting in August.

The Basketball Program will offer up to 20 scholarships (10 boys and 10 girls) for talented young athletes aged between 13 and 15 in 2010. The program will include education sessions, training camps and the NSW Academy games in Armidale during April. Applications for scholarships will open in mid to late September.
