Glory League set to hit the courts
Glory League is about to hit Auckland’s basketball courts.
Glory League showcases Unitec’s Think.Do approach to learning, by immersing basketball players in their game across Auckland, Waitakere and Counties Manukau secondary school competitions.
From October, players will be able to watch videos of their games, track their highlight plays, and apply learnings to improve their play with inplatform apps.
‘‘Unitec is excited to be part of this fast-growing sport and to support Auckland’s basketball community as it expands to become the most participated secondary school sport in New Zealand,’’ Unitec chief executive Rick Ede says. ’’The partnership furthers Unitec’s relationships with Auckland’s secondary schools as it creates pathways for high school players to reach [a] professional level on the court, as well as developing leadership and academic success off the court.
The country’s largest polytechnic will host development sessions for players and coaches from both Auckland Basketball and Harbour Basketball.
‘‘We will also work with Unitec to bring learning and development opportunities to secondary school students through workshops and clinics that display the collective power of both Unitec and Auckland Basketball,’’ Auckland Basketball general manager Dave MacKay says.
In return, Auckland Basketball will help develop Unitec’s basketball teams, including those already running within the Unitec Student Basketball Club.
Glory League’s interactive basketball is coming to 10 Auckland courts.
