ETP begins again with London event, more to follow

More than 20 players took part in the London super-region re-engagement camp last Sunday, with three other events planned across the country in the coming days.

Sunday’s meetings allowed talented players across the capital to reconnect with the England Talent Programme (ETP) and consisted of skills session and 3x3 games. 

The South super-regional event takes place this Friday, 6 August, with the North and Central sessions going ahead on Sunday 8 August.

The top players from each camp will feed into a national talent camp in Manchester on the 11-13 August.

Speaking about the recent restart of the ETP, London Regional Talent Manager (RTM) Dominic Ng said:

“It’s been great traveling around London again to watch games, meet new coaches and observe players enjoying basketball at all levels and abilities whilst competing hard on court.

“Unfortunately, a lot of talented players were on holiday or unavailable for the camp, but my thanks go to the five London districts and the coaches leadership team for their help with scouting and player identification since the sport’s return to play.”

The remaining super region events are as follows:

  • 6 August – South (Oaklands College, St Albans, AL4 0JA)
  • 8 August – Central (Birmingham City University, Birmingham, B5 5JU)
  • 8 August – North (National Basketball Performance Centre, Manchester, M12 4TF)

Central RDT Danny Williams said: “I’m really proud of the basketball community and the level of support for the restart has been outstanding. 

“The players have returned in a really good spirit and that is a credit to the clubs and families for supporting the young people through the pandemic. 

“We are looking forward to hosting our first super region events this weekend with the whole support and backing of the central region.” 

Super-regional events are also providing observation sessions and CPD opportunities for local coaches, and anyone interested in taking advantage of this should contact their RDT using the buttons below.
