The Athlete Development Program (ADP) Basketball Squad is aimed at student-athletes who show potential in the sport of basketball. The Squad aims to provide ADP athletes with structured training programs to further develop their skills, fitness, and knowledge of the sport. 

This Program will prepare athletes for the following events and representative team selections:

  • SSV Events
  • All Schools Championships

Selected basketball players are required to attend and participate in all Training sessions throughout the year (as outlined below). Athletes will receive technical and tactical coaching, and an annual competition plan and pathway developed with the Squad Coach.
