SEVEN (yes 7), boys from the currently undefeated North Adelaide U16 Div 1 team have been selected for the Basketball SA NITP (National Intensive Training Program) Squads!!

Riley Real, Fiston Ipassou, Callum Iseppi, Dylan Marshall, Alex Trzcinski, Awer Ajak and Yaak Yaak were recently advised of their inclusion in the program.

The National Intensive Training Program (NITP) is South Australia’s premier junior development program, and is closely aligned to Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence.

The program applies national coaching concepts, and focuses on improving fitness, health, skills and knowledge. Players are required to be self-motivated, dedicated, and train at high intensity to improve their basketball performance. Players aged 14 to 17 (as a guideline) who demonstrate the greatest potential to become elite basketball players at state and national level are selected in Emerging and Elite squads.

The program is run in partnership with the University of South Australia (School of Health Sciences) from February to October, and is based at the Magill Campus, the home of elite basketball in South Australia.

Congratulations Boys, a job well done and thank you Kelly Real for the information.
