ETP: Players named for England U14 and U15 selection camps

Player lists have been announced for a selection camp ahead of a busy few months of England Talent Programme (ETP) activity. 

Groups of U14 and U15 boys and girls have been invited to attend the camp at the National Basketball Performance Centre in Manchester. 

From the camp, squads will be selected for a range of ETP tournaments and games across the spring and summer, with all players attending featuring in at least one squad.  

Coaches and staff for these teams have already been announced. 

Steve Bucknall, Basketball England Head of Talent and Performance, said: 

“I’d like to congratulate the players who have been invited. We want them to come into camp with a positive attitude, ready to work hard with the coaches and show us what they are capable of. 

“The focus of the ETP is to develop players at U14 and U15 level to be ready to progress onto potential GB selection at U16. 

“We have a busy period ahead of us and the players who perform at the highest level in camp will feature the most, although everyone will get the opportunity to take part in at least one squad.”
