40 athletes named for 2013 Aust Development Camp

40 of the nation’s most talented young players will come together at the Basketball Australia National Centre of Excellence in Canberra next month for the 2013 BA Australian Development Camp.

Through the years, some of Australia’s biggest stars have been uncovered at the ADC, including Jayco Australian Opals stars Lauren Jackson, Penny Taylor, Jenni Screen and, more recently, rising star Stephanie Talbot.

Australian Boomers stars Patty Mills, Andrew Bogut, Brad Newley and exciting youngster Dante Exum also got their break through the ADC program.

Basketball Australia Chief Executive Officer Kristina Keneally said the ADC is a vital component in the identification and development of future stars of the Opals and Boomers programs.

“The Australian Development Camp is one of the most exciting parts of our program as we get to see some of the country’s top young prospects exposed to the BA’s elite-level development programs for the first time,” Ms Keneally said.

“The ADC has an amazing history of uncovering the next generation of Australian basketball stars, with the likes of Jackson, Bogut, Mills and Taylor all using the camp as a launch pad to successful careers in the green and gold.

“We eagerly await to see the stars that will emerge from this year’s group of athletes.”

The 2013 edition involves 40 athletes (20 boy and 20 girls) and will take place over five days from 23-27 September.

The ADC gives talented young athletes a taste of an elite-level national program and assists in the identification of players for national team duties.

Several of the athletes have already represented Australia at FIBA Under 17 and Under 19 World Championships.
