Basketball NSW High-Performance Programs

Basketball NSW’s High-Performance Program (HPP) serves to identify, develop, and foster the skills of young athletes who aspire to compete at the representative, national, and international levels of basketball.

Basketball NSW’s HPP is:

–          athlete focused
–          coach driven, and
–          admin supported.

 

Underpinned by Association and Development basketball programs

The HPP is underpinned by Association and Development basketball programs designed to support stakeholders, allowing them to provide quality service to their many athletes and coaches, in turn driving more players and coaches into the High-Performance pathway.

Coach development runs parallel to the player development, ensuring that coaches can develop and progress through a similar pathway to athletes. It also ensures that there are quality and committed coaches to staff the program.
