Nine players and two coaches from the Wimmera-grampians region will take part in one of Basketball Victoria Country’s biggest junior tournaments starting on Saturday.
The annual Jamboree brings together 240 of the best under-12 players from regional and rural parts of Victoria for a four-day camp in Echuca.
The players were selected from more than 1000 who attended Basketball Victoria under-12 skills days throughout the state.
Players will be split into 12 boys and 12 girls teams, which will compete against each other during the camp.
Eight players from Horsham Amateur Basketball Association and one player from Ararat Basketball Association were picked for the camp.
The Horsham players are Maddison Bethune, Milla Carter, Gemma Freijah, Cara Tippet, Micah Livingstone, Elijah Mckenzie, Levi Munyard and Ethan Worthy. Samuel Wong will represent the Ararat association.
Cassandra Hassket and Amanda Munyard from Horsham Amateur Basketball Association will also have a chance to develop their coaching skills as coaches of two of the teams.
