The Under-14 Regional Academy Program is a training and development program for country athletes that concentrates on advanced individual and team skills.
Regional Academy players attend regular small group skills sessions at or near their home association, under the direction of a Regional Academy Network Head Coach. Players also attend two compulsory weekend camps within their region.
The 2022 Regional Academy Program will be a 20-week program that includes two camps and develops individual’s skills and team concepts.
The Regional Basketball Academy will also form the basis for Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup (ACJBC) and Southern Cross Challenge selection in the relevant age groups for 2023.
