East Coast Challenge

How serious is the East Coast Challenge taken by our teams ? With Vic, NSW and ACT sending teams, are the SA coaches taking it serious or is it a development tournament

Wayville 25, It can be both, I guess given the U/18 Nationals are less than 4 months away I was looking to see if it took on a different edge now for the Metro Teams, and if the coaches were looking to get more from it. Or is it still a tournament for the Metro Teams to try different players etc.

I can't tell you what happens with NSW/SA/ACT, but i do know that the Vics take it seriously. They have tryouts to see who they will take and you can probably predict that the bulk of the final state teams will be made up of the kids that go. Vics have traditionally dominated results wise.

The comp is very strong with descent matches being played. SA Metro under 18's won it last yr with many of the other teams doing very well. Vic wins overal because of the larger number of teams they take to the tournament.

To Anonymous above; Victoria sends the same amount of teams to the tournament as NSW does.

The ECC began as a round robin competition between Vic and NSW, with each state having 2 teams in boys/girls U16 and U18 divisions, 8 teams in total.

Last year the ACT and SASI sent a couple of teams up to the tournament. SASI had one team in each division, and ACT only sent about 3 teams.

Shows the depth of Victoria and NSW that they can divide up their talent into two teams and still challenge (and in many cases beat) the SASI teams that train together regularly.

I especially like the fact that this tournament is utilized by NSW and Victoria to blood up and coming players who may not necessarily have had any previous state experience.

Hopefully SASI and ACT can do the same

Vic treat it seriously - in fact we treat everything about our basketball seriously! It's a shame we do not send any more teams as a lot of promising players unfortunately miss out.

If you ever get a chace to go and watch this event, do so as the standard is very high.

30 hour bus trips, scoring duty done by players and N G watching your every move, sounds like a trip to miss

THE Victorian basketball under 16 and under 18 teams won all the finals of the annual East Coast Challenge tournament held last week at Hills Stadium.

The tournament attracted 24 under 16 and under 18 representative basketball teams from NSW, ACT, Victoria and South Australia and met at the Hills Basketball Stadium, Castle Hill last week, in the annual Eastern Coast Challenge.

This tournament has been a great drawcard to the Hills Stadium since its inception, drawing good-sized crowds to see some of the best young talent in Australia strutting their stuff in the four-court complex.

Teams from Victoria have tended to dominate the event over the years and 2009 would prove to follow a similar path, with seven teams from the southern state reaching the four grand finals.

Only South Australia managed to reach the grand final in the Under 16 women's division, putting in a sterling effort before falling 45-42 to one of the Victoria Metropolitan teams.

The 2020 edition will soon be played at the Northern Beaches Indoor Stadium. For those who don't know the area, the stadium lies about 1km inland from some fabulous beaches at Narrabean, Newport, Warriewood. So pack your swimmers and take the opportunity to enjoy the surrounds!

Is this tournament going ahead? Not sure if the area is affected by the fires?

Tournament is going ahead. The region around the stadium is coastal and so far unaffected by fire. Beware of possible road closures if travelling long distance by car.
