Benalla trio selected for Gold Nugget Camp


The Benalla Basketball Associatio­n would like to extend a huge congratula­tions to Owain Boyle, Jack Walker and Heidi O’Halloran on their selection for Basketball Victoria’s Gold Nugget Camp.

These players have been put through their paces in a rigorous selection process that spans over a 6 month period. The skills day selection was the first hurdle where they were selected for the Academy program.

To then jump into the Basketball Victoria Academy program, which saw them engage in weekly high performanc­e training sessions in preparatio­n for the two camp selection process. These players attended in hopes of making Gold Nugget.

The next step would see them compete with 252 country athletes that had been selected to attend from across the state.

The players will be out to impress selectors as the best at the camp will be picked for the 2020 Metro Challenge.

A number of Australian Basketball Representa­tives have also started their country Pathway through the same program, such as Matthew Dellavedov­a, Jade Melbourne, Jack White and Jaz Shelley.

These players have demonstrat­ed excellent work ethic, determinat­ion, team engagement and willingnes­s to learn and take on instructio­ns.

Their positive attitude and coachabili­ty will hold them in good stead for anything they choose to do.

We would like to offer Jack, Owain and Heidi our best wishes going forward and again congratula­te them on making this selection. Go Breakers!
