These three players beat out over 50 other trialists from around the Wellington region to be a part of this team, which demonstrates the excellence of the basketball programme here in Kapiti.

The team has just arrived back from the national tournament in Dunedin, where they competed for a whole week against the best teams in the country, placing 13th out of 19 teams. (Click on the photo to  enlarge.)

 

Praise from the coach

Peter Gosnell, Head Coach of the Wellington U13 Boys had this to say: “It was great to have the Kapiti kids involved, and they brought something special to the team. Emmerson in particular produced some standout performances, and as he is the right age to qualify for U13s again next year, we expect to see good things from him in the future.”
