Team NI U17 Squads Announced for Area Board Tournament

Head coaches Paul McCotter (U17 Boys) and Paddy McGaharan (U17 Girls) have announced their 12 person squads for the upcoming U17 Area board tournament at Gormanston on Monday 6th May. These squads have been selected from the current training group and take into account the availability of players around examination commitments, the BNI club only rule and correct age profile. The training squads will take a break after the tournament and re-convene in June in preparation for the summer programme. 

Andy Gill, Performance Pathway lead stated, “BNI do not often enter this tournament because of the clashes with player GCSE commitments. However, the one-day nature of the tournament and venue proximity means it was achievable this year. It will give some excellent competitive  experience to the players and support the longer term aims of the U17 squads”.

Paddy McGaharan, U17 Girls Coach commented, ‘’I would like to thank all the girls involved for their exceptional work ethic during the training camps. There has been a massive improvement already in a short period of time by all players. I am keen to build on the work we have done and continue to drive girls’ basketball forward. With the ongoing professional approach, set up by Team NI, I am confident this will give players access to quality training and ultimately improve the brand of basketball on display”.
