Basketball Auckland Talent Accelerator Program Update

Tuesday morning BA TAP sessions will now be held at the Auckland Grammar School.

The previous Tuesday sessions at Unitec have been moved.

TAP Mondays and Thursdays will continue to be held at Unitec, Mt Albert, as usual.

With the Jr. U13 Representative season beginning & the U15 & U17 Representative season ending all many have left is School basketball. For most this is far from enough. Our Jr’s need up skilling heading into Regionals. U15’s, it’s the business end of the school season & now you have the time you need to develop YOUR individual game.

The Basketball Auckland Talent Accelerator Program is geared towards those who take their basketball seriously & seek to improve their individual skill base. Geared towards U13 - 15 Representative level athletes this is an individual skill based program giving you the tools & a small piece of the time you will need to better your game.


The targeted age group is U13, U15 & U17 athletes. Male and Female.
