The Men’s Head Coach Markus Klusemann, who is in his second year in the role, was excited about the upcoming Championships, and said… “This year’s ACT Under 16 Men’s team has high character and team chemistry.”

“The Australian Junior Championships will provide an elite level of basketball that these players have not yet experienced. This unique challenge will test the team’s values and ability to play the ACT way.”

“Moving the ball on offence with good shot selection and a disruptive defence will be the cornerstones of the ACT Under 16 team.”

After several years working with other programs, Shane Wallace will be leading the Under 16 Women from the sideline. The experience with other programs will serve him, and the team, well at his first Championships as a Head Coach of an ACT program.

“We have selected an exciting group of young ladies who are willing to work hard for each other and play their role within the team,” Wallace said.

“We are not a tall team but we have chosen a style of play that should benefit our playing group and force the opposition to adapt their game.”

“We don’t care who our opposition is, we are just looking forward to the challenges ahead and are keen to see what we are capable of.”

On behalf of the entire Canberra basketball community, Basketball ACT would like to congratulate the athletes on their selections, and wish them all the best at the Championships.
