Upcoming Rep Trails

14 Nov

Who wants to play for the 2019 Tauranga rep teams?

Excitement is building ahead of the trials to find next year’s Tauranga City Basketball rep teams.

Four weeks of trials will be held at Aquinas College over four consecutive Sundays from November 18 through to December 9.

The under-15 boys’ and girls’ teams, under-17 boys’ and girls’ teams and under-19 boys’ and girls’ team will be selected from the four trials.

Tauranga City Basketball General Manager, Mark Rogers, says competition for places is stronger than it ever has been.

“We have gone with four weeks of trials to ensure everyone gets seen multiple times and we can assess everyone to a high level before selecting teams,” Mark says.

“Last year we had 22 rep teams, which was up from 10 teams in 2010. We have multiple teams in each grade and last year had B teams qualify for the national finals tournament for the first time at under-15 level.”

Players are expected to attend all four trials.

If you can’t make all four dates or for further information, please email Director of Development, Rachel Gwerder, at development@taurangacitybasketball.co.nz or phone 578 0405 before the first trial.

The cost to take part in all four trials is just $15 per player if pre-registered or $20 per player registered at the first trial.
