International Cap Presentation 2016
September 22, 2016
Over 150 of Irelandâs finest young basketball players are to have their achievements on the International stage recognised this weekend. Basketball Ireland President Theresa Walsh is to present members of 11 international squads with their caps after a season of unprecedented activity.
This summer saw Ireland represented at the FIBA European Championships at U20, U18 and U16 level for both men and women. The U16 and U18 Womenâs squads both qualified for quarter-finals and secured top eight finishes while many players received their first ever international caps as part of ongoing work with the U15 and U17 development squads.
The Ireland Senior Womenâs Squad are also to receive official recognition for their efforts in securing silver at the FIBA European Championships for Small Countries in Gibraltar. That was followed up with a test series win over Iceland earlier this month.
