Basketball NSW is once again hosting the D League, a three-week tournament aimed at showcasing and assisting in developing the best talent from the Spalding Waratah Junior Leagues in 2018.

The tournament is open to any athlete & coach who currently competed in any of Basketball NSW Spalding Waratah Junior Leagues. 

The aim of the D-League is to identify talented players and coaches, who are competing and coaching within the NSW Spalding Waratah Junior League’s, and assist in their development by playing and coaching against each other in a three week tournament.

This week  Shane Howard from Custom College Recruiting (CCR)will be in attendance to talk about College as an option for you son/daughter. At some point over the next 4-6 years, that thought will cross you son/daughter or even your mind at some point. I highly recommend your attendance as the seminars are during the break between games.
Some more info on CCR –

The competition has the following divisions:

  • U14 Boys & Girls
  • U16 Boys & Girls
  • U18 Boys & Girls

Congratulations to the following athletes who have been selected in the BNSW 2018 D-League.
