SEVEN Taree Tornadoes have secured junior NSW representative basketball selections.
Annika Scott and Sonny Scoble were both selected for the Country Development Tournament (CDT), which will be held January 2020 in Newcastle.
Country Development Tournament is targeted at participants identified as potential participants for the following year's Australian Country Junior Cup. This is conducted for both boys and girls in the U15 and U17 age groups.
Mariah Radburn, Amarley Bron, Ciara Wilkinson, Darcy Radburn and Jannarlia Dumas are all heading to Albury for the Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup (ACJBC) at the Lauren Jackson Sports Centre.
Each year, upwards of 60 teams and 700 players, coaches and officials take part including teams from Tasmania and New Zealand in the under 14, 16, and 18 age groups.
The standard of competition continues to improve year after year, but the original development aspect has been maintained and become remarkably successful.
Amarley and Mariah were also successful in gaining a place in the State Performance Program.
The State Performance Program (SPP) is the second tier of the Basketball NSW High-Performance Program.
The program exists to assist in identifying, developing, and preparing athletes in the under 16 and under 18 age group to represent New South Wales at the Australian Junior Championships.
From mid-October the players will be working closely with Tornadoes' coaching director, Lonnie Funderburke, to make sure they are up to par in January.
