July 02, 2017
Head Coach Paul Kelleher has this week selected 21 players to progress with the Ireland Under 17 Men’s development squad.
The announcement comes after the squad’s recent trip to Wales and an international camp that was held at the University of Limerick this week.
Speaking about the selection, Coach Kelleher stated: "The squad to date have worked tirelessly on skill development and working on their basketball intellect over the last nine months. Every player has demonstrated their ability to perform at International level. Our squad was very young with a large part of the squad a year young and the development part of the program has proved very, very successful.
“The time is now right to focus on the next phase of the program which is getting ready for the European Championships 2018. The function and emphasis of the program now changes, with more in depth focus and role definition. We will now work on training to compete over the summer months and prepare for potential games at the October mid-term and Christmas break."
