U14 and U15 Provincial Academies postponed
October 06, 2020
Due to the ongoing growth of Covid 19 cases in Ireland, Basketball Ireland has decided to postpone the start of the U14 regional and U15 provincial Academies until after Christmas.
The growth of the academy to just over 600 players, male and female, across the two age groups last year has been a huge success and we hope to be able to run both academies in the second half of this season.
We are already starting to see the benefit of the Academy system across our international programs with many more players now pushing for places on the international underage teams and this is something we are committed to continue as soon as it is safe to do so.
We will issue another update after Christmas when we will hopefully be in a position to give details of how and when we will run the academies for this season.
