NATIONAL JUNIOR PLAYERS RECEIVE AWARDS
The National Squad Coaches evaluate players in writing in a number of areas, including:
- · Attitude
- · Work rate
- · Self discipline
- · Attendance
- · Listening/attention
- · Skills teamwork/leadership
- · Game knowldege
In addition the Coaches check the players folders each month to check on the player’s home program relating to ball handling skills, strength program and shooting charts and each player has report prepared.
Players are also evaluated on their fitness test each month as well as on court performances during pactice sessions.
These evaluations play a part in the final selction process for players to National Teams. This change to have more objective measurements as well as subjective ones is a proving valuable for the coaches and will also allow for ongoing records for the future as we track each player’s progress over several years and their ability to suit future National Squad Programs.
