2021/2022 bASKETBALL TASMANIA FDP & SDP TRIALS

Basketball Tasmania is conducting open trials for Future Development Program (boys and girls born between 2009 and 2012) and State Development Program (boys and girls born between 2005 and 2008).

The FDP and SDP are 'selective' programs supported by Basketball Australia and aim to develop the best boys and girls in each region of our state. The programs include weekly practices in their regions and a series of camps to develop their individual skills, mental skills, and team concepts.

Players must register on the Basketball Tasmania website prior to attending the trial.

There will be two trials held and athletes are asked to attend both. If athletes are unable to attend a trial or wish to register an apology, they should email the Basketball Tasmania Development Manager. There is $10 cost which covers both trials. Players are asked to please bring a named basketball, a named drink bottle and wear a reversible basketball singlet and basketball shorts of any colour.

Development Programs x TJBL

Basketball Tasmania encourages all athletes within the development programs (FDP and SDP) to participate in the TJBL (in either Championship or Shield Division). The TJBL competition aims to provide quality representative basketball which presents development program athletes with the opportunity to gain valuable game experience on a weekly basis and maximise their basketball development.

 

Athletes are still eligible for the FDP/SDP program and can participate in weekly program sessions and Tri-Series regardless of whether they are participating in the TJBL. However, athletes must be playing TJBL to be eligible for the following opportunities that supplement our development programs:

  • Country Cup

  • U14 Club Championships

  • U16 & U18 Australian Junior Championships

 

For those who are not currently playing TJBL in 2021, but would like to participate in the above opportunities in 2022 must express an intent to play TJBL next year.
