Hmmm I don't know if there's heaps.

The Futures group is for under 14's then it's NITP, under 16's+ - which is split into elite and emerging.

The only other squads are State teams.

Those selected will be, or have been emailed. I don't believe they are published online.

BSA has invited all of the kids by email and waiting to finalise the list.

Rumour has it, many kids have opted out due to other sporting comitments clashing (netball and football).

BSA promised to release the list this week but this may not happen to due to squad still being finalised and a possible reserves RE trial for the final spots.

There is an issue with the way this progresses. Size, ability, intellect, that 10 year accumalative injury rate, maturity, education, social issues and most importantly compatibility within a team are all selected from 12/13/14 year olds and at 15/16 some
that are overlooked can size up and mature in game and ability but not even considered. This was evident when the U16 squads were posted before the end of U16 trials. Says quite a bit when you view trials and some don't attend all yet get a spot, some injured and some clearly don't perform in match ups. Will be interesting to see if this leads to poor results or maybe they did get it right. Only time over the next few years will tell. Different views and read of the game I guess.

This thread what about The Futures squads, under 14 kids. I was told the list would be published the week the kids were invited, yet it never was. My child is in the squad so i wasnt concerned about it that much, however it is strange it never was published although promsied to be.

the old "there are better kids not picked" crap went around anyways, always does. Sometimes i think people miss the point of development squads, they are based on where kids have potential to take their skill not just where they are at right now.

based on that comment you would think that those with potential from last futures, would have made state or nitp, this is not the case for many, and prior to that many from last years scc ands ecc didn't make last futures either and then missed out on nitp. emotionally having a huge impact on the players, parents and teams. rollercoaster for many many kids who are not prepared and put in a position they were not ready for so parents make sure they have balance and prepared for disappointment as well as success. do not sacrifice education and other important socialisation and opportunities in life as well. very few go forward. do not squash dreams but hard work is not always rewarded as everyone likes to make us all think. we never hear about those who put in equal if not more effort and don't make it. there are many many more of those than the success that is rammed down the media, from coaches and parents and when it doesn't happen the kids think it is them. many young minds are not prepared and there is no expert on hand like in elite sports to prepare for, or resolve emotional issues.

To the essay above. My child is part of the squad, I don't sacrifice anything to try and make them elite. They just happen to be skilled and they were chosen, Went to SCC too, based on being the right fit and right attitude. It's a great opportunity and lots of fun.

My kid also plays footy and is good at that, no pushing here... just letting my kid be a kid.

Never said all kids were in that situation, just many so stop thinking post is about you and your child as I have no clue who you even are. Great is is working for you but have some empathy for those that are not as happy or successful as yours and the ride has not worked out. The post is aimed at parents who are excited as they should be wth their childs first experience in programs to be aware that there are bo guarantees and to prepare themselves and their kids for the highs and lows because I know many that it has had a negative impact on. It does not suggest others do not work gard or don not deserve their spot just that there is limits and pathways do not always follow as some may expect. That is all.

WTF are you talking about? re read your essays.

it is every parents job to help navigate their child through disappointment, however that's life... I hate to think there's that many parents walking around thinking their kid is going to the NBA because they made an under 14 Futures squad.

Enjoy the experience whilst it exists i say. If your child didnt make it in, it means nothing in the way of their bball future. Keep training, keep enjoying the game and if you have the talent it will work it self out as long as you have a good attitude and some patience.

with futures there would be about a 60% retention rate with 40% vacancies / new ones by the next group so keep on at it - if you throw the towel in at futures level you are giving up way to easy.

A few of the stars turned it down due to netball and football commitments.

There are a few first years invited as reserves to fill the spots.

This is metro as well, not Country.

As has been mentioned a few times in a few threads, you can just see right here how big the pool of talent is in the big states of NSW, VIC and QLD.

50 girls chosen for the Futures Squad in NSW.

18-20 in each boys and girls squads to work with in SA (and a few of those are bottom age)
however, the talent and standard is good, just not as deep.

The SA girls at Southern Cross this year beat Vic Metro and Vic Country, so the talent in SA is on par even from the smaller pool.
