With little over five weeks to go before our five national teams head to the XVI World Maxibasketball Championships 2023 in Argentina, we are already looking ahead to the XII FIMBA European Championship next year in Italy and with our eyes set firmly on places on the medal podium for Great Britain.
We warmly invite players, coaches and Sports Science & Medicine (SSM) staff from all and any current masters organizations or clubs to register to attend our open training days on Saturday 30th September and Sunday 1st October at the Nottingham Wildcats Arena. We are seeking to bring together the masters community in a bid to select the strongest cohort of players from the widest talent pool available to represent Great Britain. Depending on depth and strength of players, we anticipate fielding national teams in male and female competition categories from 35+ to 60+ years of age. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER YOUR INTEREST
As a national performance programme, we would expect players to be motivated by:
(a) the opportunity to be selected as the best in their UK peer group
(b) the opportunity to compete internationally against the best of their age in Europe
(c) the chance to proudly represent Great Britain in a collective bid for Championship success.
Coaches and SSM staff will have the opportunity for development and mentoring within a performance environment.
Player eligibility to represent Great Britain at these Championships is as follows:
(a) you have British nationality, or dual nationality that includes Great Britain, or
(b) you have any nationality, but lived in Great Britain for more than 12 months, or
(c) you have any nationality, but have ‘Indefinite Leave to Remain’ in Great Britain
If you’re up for that challenge, please register your interest as early as possible via the website form, or scan the QR code on our social media posts to complete the registration form. Places at these camps are limited and registration will close on Friday 15 September 2023.
Age categories will be from 35+ to 60+, male and female players and we will certainly be looking to emulate the fantastic performances in Malaga 2022 of GB’s 35+ Women (pictured above), who took European Gold!
