Basketball England is pleased to announce the various staff members that have been appointed as part of the England Talent Programme (ETP). Following a rigorous recruitment process, a number of staff have now been selected to assist across the Under 14 and Under 15 England programmes.
All appointments will be for a two-year period, with each position carrying various review points over the next 24 months depending on the key events for each team. The upcoming slate of activity for the England teams this summer includes trips to Paris, Valencia and Copenhagen as the ETP embraces the ethos of exposing young players to the style and rigours of European competition from an earlier age than ever before.
Basketball England’s Programme & Pathway Integration Manager Charlie Ford said: “I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome all the incoming staff to the organisation and I am sure they will prove to be excellent assets to the ETP. The next few years will involve a radical shift in how we nurture and develop our talented young athletes and I’m excited for the various staff members appointed to be involved in that process.”
All four programmes will have a dedicated Strength and Conditioning lead as well as a team physio. All work being overseen by Basketball England’s Head of Physiotherapy and Sports Science Andy Howse, ensuring consistency for Sports Science and Medicine across the ETP.
