BA College Combine
So rumour has it that Basketball Australia will be running a "college combine" in the July school holidays.
While on the face of it this seems like a great initiative, and definitely a change of heart (looks like BA have realised that there are just not enough Australian opportunities for our Australian juniors), it still turns out to be a FAIL because BA have invited the kids that are currently representing Australia, or have represented Australia or existing COE athletes.
How much exposure does this one group of kids need? What about the next level - the group of ten or twenty beyond those kids that don't get in the Aussie squad so don’t get to go to the ADCs or the Basketball Without Borders camp?
Any wonder these kids and their families turn to the privately run overseas tours and the scouting agents? What choice do they have?
BA, you are letting these kids down!
