COE trip this week for NPP Athletes

Heard a number of the NPP athletes were heading to the COE this week.

Anyone have a list of players?

Any stand outs to be on the look out for?

10/12 girls from VIC Metro and Country attending.

Not all of them are in NPP yet.

Not all NPP athletes received an invitation.

The BV visit is for the best female prospects, otherwise I am certain they may have considered some boys.

The CoE coaches ran some selection sessions when they were in Melbourne at u20 nationals, and from ther they selected this group.

I guess in their eyes these are the best u18 prospects from Victoria and they get to take a look at them at the CoE.

If you have a solid understanding of talent ID, you could probably nominate the girls that are there.

Don't have a list of players but there is a photo on the COE and the BV FaceBook pages of the group with Paul Goriss, Brendan Joyce and the COE girls.

So, what was that all about? Was it a practice game or for fun?

Not sure why, Vic NPP reassessed the boys in the program last week, I understand this was an outing for the boys that were kept in.

The funnier comment is that someone believes there were selection trials held for this trip

Yes, and they were selected from some training sessions.

Some very highly rated kids missed out after performing poorly or not showing.

There were no specific selection trial for this trip. BV just chose whoever they wanted.

Didn't the State coach nominate a number of players to 'trial' for Paul when he was down here earlier this year? And didn't this 'trial' take place PRIOR to the State team actually being picked?

This was just a trip not a selection, it was to show the kids the facilities and daily routine of the CofE, to see really great facilities they need to take them on a tour of the USA colleges, which I think is happening later this year. Compared to the college facilities in the top div1 and even the lower ranked ones, the CofE has very little considering it's supposed to be the best Australia has to offer.
Sad really but when the government does not put money into sports it's hard to keep up with the best in the world.

My kid, shall remain nameless, was there several times over the past years. Very underwhelming facilities on behalf of basketball.

@9020.....no. There was a session with the COE coaches when they were here, but it had nothing to do with this trip.

Ha ha, of course it didn't. Telł that to the parents who called asking where their daughter's invitation is.

So was this session with the COE coaches just something for Paul to do? And were the players who went on the recent trip just 'lucky' that they also happened to be from the same group that Paul saw when he came down earlier in the year?
The timing of that session left a pretty bad taste in quite a few mouths as the State team had not been selected at that stage yet but the bulk of those who finally got selected were invited to the session. Left you in no doubt as to who would make the State team.

So what? Coaches nominated kids who would be in their state team? Who wouldn't.

Wasn't it just NPP with a few bottom age 16s thrown in at the morning sessions?

And the trip was for a group selected from them. NPP and CoE has nothing to do with State team selections as we are constantly reminded, so why the drama?

The drama is because someone's little precious obviously didn't get an invite!

I would say all the other states if they too wished to organise a trip like this could do so. Similar trips are done by schools, both sport s hools and other schools, and what they do there depends on what the organisers want to do or the CofE have time for. My kids school did a tour, funny thing was mine was already up there at a camp.

Some parents get a little over excited when kids go there on one of these trips especially when it's a pure basketball group as they read way too much into it.

Selections for CofE are not done on these tours, they might allow an extra look at some kids but selectors usually already have what they are looking for on radar and check them out at tournaments.

Great experience non the less for any that get the chance to visit

Sorry to spoil the party but it is not like school tour.

Brendan Joyce and Paul Goriss don't work out with kids on a school tour.

School tour groups don't join in CoE training.

One of the girls was taken out for a physical screen by the CoE medical crew.

Unlikely they do that to some random from St Joseph's.

The best junior girls from Victoria went there and as always when you are training or playing you are being evaluated, maybe for the next Aus Camp, maybe for the Aus u17 team, maybe as a potential CoE scholarship recipient.

Not just like a school tour.
