Share this article

Basketball Australia (BA) has announced 60 junior athletes from across the country to attend the National Performance Camp (NPC) at BA’s Centre of Excellence at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra.

Previously known as the Australian development camp, this event has become a staple in the Australian basketball pathway for our nation’s brightest young players. Spanning for three decades, the NPC has featured some of Australia’s biggest exports, like Lauren Jackson, Rebecca Allen, Elizabeth Cambage, Patty Mills, Aron Baynes and Joe Ingles to name a few.

This cohort of athletes have caught the eyes of selectors across their state and territory programs and strong performances at the recent Australian Under 18 Championships have been rewarded.

The four day camp will take place from September 29th- October 2nd, where the attendees will take part in a series of on-court sessions, scrimmages and education sessions, while engaging with some of the nation’s leading coaches in the game.

The athletes who will be in attendance are:
