What Coaches Look for in a State Team Player

State Team selections are always challenging, especially in a state like Queensland which has exceptional talent and a large pool of quality athletes to select from.

That large talent pool allows us to be as competitive as we are when we go away to Australian Junior Championships, which is a huge benefit. However, with such great talent comes the inevitable disappointment of quality junior basketballers at selection time. This blog has been designed with the intention of providing some insight into the thinking of a state team selection panel and to give you the best chance of being selected to represent Queensland.
