2016 QNJBC Success

 In Representatives

Cairns Basketball had unprecedented success at the Queensland North Junior Basketball Championships (QNJBC) in 2016.

There were strong results across all age groups and divisions, a credit to the consistent approach to skill development and style of play adopted at the beginning of the season.

Heading up the approach is the CQUniversity Cairns Taipans coaching staff, who have put in countless hours to mentor and support rep coaches and players.

“The involvement of the Taipans Coaching Staff has been a huge boost for our representative program, with our rep coaches having access to some of the greatest basketball minds in the country.” Cairns Basketball Development Manager, Nic Martin said.

“They have provided our coaches with ongoing assistance via coaching clinics, meetings and resources.”

7 out of 8 boy’s teams claimed division crowns, while the girl’s teams placed highly and showed massive signs of improvement across the 3 tournaments. All of which are positive signs and grows confidence leading into State Championships next month.

“Without the assistance of the Taipans coaching staff and the hard work of all coaches, managers and volunteers we would not have seen such fantastic QNJBC results. Hopefully these results will translate into even better results at the State Championships next month” Martin added.
