Basketball NSW is pleased to announce the trial dates for the 2021 Talented Athlete Program (TAP).  Trials will be held in both Country and Metro regions with both U13 and U14 age groups eligible to be selected.

The Talented Athlete Program (TAP) is a single camp-based program that aims to expose selected athletes to the NSW/Australian Style of Play and concepts of play whilst also providing educational opportunities for athletes in the field of nutrition, injury prevention, effective rehabilitation exercises. 

“TAP plays an important role in the development pathway for both Country and Metro athletes,” General Manager of Coaching and Development Brett Coxsedge said.

“Unfortunately, last year we were unable to conduct the live-in camps at the Sydney Academy of Sport due to COVID shutting down the venue. However, we are looking forward to giving the U13 and U14 athletes an opportunity to attend their own camp this year as we know how important it is for us to get the opportunity to work with the next crop of stars!”
