Basketball Focus schools

Looking at enrolling my daughter in a basketball focus school, what are the general thoughts with the quality of these programs? I have had mixed reports that they can be very "wishy washy" and it certainly isn't classed as an elite level development pathway.

Thoughts anyone?

Of those in Vic that I'm aware of, they're not renowned for their academic achievement or prowess.

May be better to send her Private.

Read an article in the Messenger last night about Pasadena. Rumours of closures or merges have decimated their stocks. Down to 14 year 12 students this year.

Interested in the program that they are attempting to get off the ground in Mt Barker at a private school given this school has no actual basketball facility to speak of? Very mickey mouse at best with this concept.

It's nothing special really. The program at Pasadena for example only really added an extra training a week to what the schedule would have already been at any other school if playing in a school team. Better off getting individuals for your daughter in the mornings with a good junior coach.

Get your daughter an education, basketball will take care of itself if she has the talent, motivation and support from you. Their is not one single 'basketball' focused school that can offer a decent education, and without that she won't go anywhere without an education. If you want to get her into the college system, she must have the correct subjects with good grades.

Immanuel, Cabra, Sacred Heart all solid College/High School basketball teams in Adelaide and made finals for Schools Games. Changes each year but these 3 do well each year. Pick the one that offers best needs for your daughters education.
