British Basketball Announce Nominated Players For GB National U16 & U18 Squads

British Basketball is pleased to announce the list of players nominated by the Home Countries to participate in the initial training camps for the GB National U16 & U18 Squads, ahead of the various FIBA European Championships 2017.

British Basketball Chief Executive, Lisa Wainwright, commented “This is such an exciting announcement to make. For the first time, the Under 16 and Under 18 teams will be competing in European Championships under a GB banner and flying the Union flag. The Home Countries have done their own talent identification processes and have nominated a wonderful bunch of young athletes to take part in the initial training camps. Thanks to Basketball England for managing the programme for these squads. Good luck to everyone over the next few months.”

Vladan Dragosovac, Technical and Performance Manager at Basketball England, who is overseeing the GB camps, said “It is great to be involved in bringing together talented young basketball players from across the home nations. The programme we are delivering through the upcoming camps is designed to further prepare our young athletes for competition at the highest level.”
