Over the second week of the school holidays the U13 Northern Regionals took place at ASB Arena in Tauranga. It was a great and enjoyable experience for all our ABSL teams as they got to see the sights while competing against other athletes who love the game of basketball. Our teams played hard against each other and many well-drilled teams such as Harbour, Rotorua, Tauranga, Waikato and Waikato Country.
The best 11 & 12 year old players in the Northern Region showcased their skills and made their supporters proud. Despite results not favouring most of our teams, the experience, effort and commitment from each player was rewarding. This tournament is an essential aspect in developing our future basketball stars.
Huge congratulations to the U13 Auckland B Girl’s team for taking 1st place in the Girls ‘B’ grade competition!
A special thank you to all the managers, volunteers, parents, referees and coaches for all their hard work in supporting our twelve ABSL teams. All your hard work definitely does not go un-noticed.
Most of the athletes who participated in the tournament now have their eyes on the next representative season. The representative scene is always on going and the U15, U17 and U19 Counties Manukau, Waitakere West and Auckland boys and girls musters are currently in progress.
