British Basketball held a Talent Identification Camp just before Christmas in Manchester. This was attended by nominated home based players eligible for the U20 squads for competition in the 2010 U20 European Championships.

The aim was to firstly identify talent that could represent GB at the forthcoming European championships and secondly develop the players in terms of what is required at the next level in their basketball.

Home Nations national junior Under 18 coaches from England, Scotland and Wales were also in attendance. They worked in support of the GB U20 Head Coaches Tim Lewis and Damian Jennings. The coaches were supported by Performance Pathway Coordinator Warwick Cann over the two days.

The players in attendance were given goals of listening and learning, and to be disciplined in all that they did over the camp. The coaches agreed that the players achieved these targets. "We improved our effort levels over the two days. Now the challenge for the players is to maintain the level that is required to be competitive internationally." commented Tim Lewis, GB U20 Men Head Coach.

Damian Jennings, GB U20 Women Head Coach added "I was extremely pleased by the commitment to learning that the female players displayed at the camp. It was a very good camp"

All players have been given feedback and plans for future training and preparation. They will continue to be monitored in their training and development over the next six months as part of the ongoing assessment for final selection in the summer.

Warwick Cann, Performance Pathway Coordinator concluded "The Talent ID camp was a step in the right direction, specifically the attributes of 'listening for learning' and 'discipline in mind' are key for our player development in Britain "

The consensus among all coaches was that each group passed that test.

"British basketball has some promising talent which we are keen to work with and develop. We have a huge challenge but this was definitely a step in the right direction" concluded Cann.
