After recent camps at Basketball Australia’s Centre of Excellence, the teams selected to represent Australia in the FIBA Oceania Under 15 Championships in Guam have been named.
The boy’s squad features Ryder Cheeseman and Harrison Beauchamp who recently won gold at the Under 16 Australian Junior Championships for Victoria Metro. While the girl’s squad sees Jessie-May Hall, Zoe Jackson and Ruby Perkins suit up for Australia, after winning gold with NSW Metro.
“The FIBA Oceania Under 15 tournament is an entry point for these young players into the green and gold pathway and an exciting opportunity for all involved,” said Director of High-Performance Coach Development, Peter Lonergan.
“Wearing the green and gold is a huge honour for players of any age, and we are excited to watch this young group compete in Guam.”
The two squads of 12 will head to Guam in November 21-26.
This event is a qualifying event for the FIBA Under 16 Asian Championship.
