From what I can gather the current girls scholarship holders are;
S. Heal 9/01 165
A Hannan 3/01 190
I. Palmer 2/01 175
E. Hollingsworth 2/01 188
Last-tear Poa 11/01 177
I. Bourne 11/00 188
?T. Mole? 6/99 185
8 If Mole is still there, of which 5 are from 2001/02 - eligible for the next world U17's
A. Emma-Nnopu would be a must along with Anstey and Johnson. Others??
From what I can gather the current boys COE scholarship holders are;
A. Krause 10/00 192
S. Froling 2/00 211
K. Bowen 10/00 202
I. Lee 4/00 182
C. Beard 5/00 202
C. Dalton 5/00 206
J. Kunen 10/00 202
?D. Grida? 4/98 197
?O. Hulland? 9/99 211 Hawaii 2018
?M. Johns? 5/99 203
?A. Mudronja? 9/99 194
11 If Grida, Hulland, Johns, Mudronja don't graduate very soon,
7 if they do Graduate, of which 0 are from 2001/02 - eligible for the next world U17's this is very poor planning...

A. Garang 9/00 205
T. Wigness 3/02 179

Stay tuned in the coming days for the release of the new scholarship holders for the women's CoE program in 2018 as well as announcements on the men's program.
I wonder if anyone stood out at the recent ADC?
Looks like they need another pg, another guard, a couple of sfs and another post player.
Based on form at the u16 Asia champs, you'd think Amoore and Nnopu will be 2 of them.
Anstey who was injured? and potter maybe?

^ Yes, what are they doing? Is there a single COE boy eligible for u17 worlds next year? I know 4 of the Global Academy boys are but that seems like an exceptionally old cohort in the boys. No one from the team that won the most recent u18 National championship is a bit disappointing, too.
That's true, but if there are that many of our best kids turning down the COE, the COE needs to reevaluate what they're doing. If they can't lure the kids who are genuinely most likely to be Boomers and Opals in the future, what purpose do they serve? Turns into a pretty significant expenditure to develop some B teams.
Time they did away with the whole "live in" program and instead put resources into developing a larger pool across the country, take those athletes who show potential into short term camps throughout the year, this allows them to be exposed to bigger older stronger opponents and more competitive games than they get simply being encased at the institute with the same ten players al, the time.
This is what these institute athletes lack when they eventually leave.
In addition as they are still young they can at least have parental guidance and access to better education.
If they are going to go on to be elite athletes they will do so with or without the CofE
Should follow the ntc model in soccer.
Vjbl u14, u16, u18, u20
U12 vic side play in u14vjbl
U14 vic side play in u16vjbl
U16 vic side play in u18vjbl
U18 vic side play in u20vjbl
Same with all the states
If you chose the best 12-15 within the state for each age group.
Best 11/12y.o in u14 state league
Best 13/14y.o in u16 state league
Best 15/16y.o in u18 state league
Best 17/18y.o in senior division
Each age group gets HP training every week. (this is not the same as nitp)
Fnsw institute do it this way.
13G compete in u14 npl
14G compete in u15 npl
15G compete in u17 npl
16G compete in womens reserves
17G compete in women's 1sts
Majority of players end up as u17, u20 or senior matildas or w league professionals.
Each state has something similar but don't field a team in every age group.
The logistics of this don't work, it's that simple. Take the 10 best u14 players in VJBL and play them as a Vic HP side in u16 VC. Fine. But they can't simultaneously play in that HP team in u16 and also meet their club commitments in u14s. So now the u14 competition is watered down. And so on through every age group.
The only place it arguably is viable is with u18/20 athletes who could simultaneously play seniors. But by then if they are good enough, they should be able to do so through their junior club so the primary benefit would be in having them play together. The value of that is questionable, IMO, compared to fighting for minutes in an established senior team.
I agree with the notion that decentralising the COE somewhat would be preferable if it created a broader base of athletes in consideration for Aus junior sides. But this suggestion doesn't work.
They don't play for a club team if they are apart of 'VIC HP'
I disagree that it would be watered down. You have 4+ divisions within each age group now and an increase in basketball registrations every year. You also have clubs that are rapidly expanding in areas of population growth. Teams in the south east like Casey etc and new teams yet to come on board in the north.
Earlier this year
They should abolish the whole COE & just leverage the nba academy & make that larger. So many of these coe kids leave & cant handle the athleticism of international ball. get more foreigners to the institute & develop them in an international environment - while being part paid by the COE
#343, taking the ten best kids out of VC will absolutely dilute the quality of the competition. I know there are a lot of divisions and registrations are increasing, but that doesn't mean that the standard at the very top is the same whether you include the best team or not. If you isolate it to VC, at a very minimum, you're talking about the equivalent of removing the best team in the competition and replacing it with the worst. And that fails to consider the inappropriateness of the proposal for every other state, where the depth of talent is even less. It's conceptually fine, but unless they rescheduled it so, for example, u12s and u16s played on one day and u14s and u18s played on another day, it is practically unsound.
#348, being part of HP doesn't currently preclude kids playing rep, but under the proposal being discussed - namely that a state HP side of kids in one age group should be entered into the rep competition in the age group above - it would.
