U13 Representative & Development Teams

U13 Development Tournament

Basketball Pacific NZ hosts the annual Mel Young Tournament, over the long easter weekend. Hawke's Bay typically would like to send two teams of each gender to this tournament, and will potentially send a third boys team or third girls team depending on training facilities available, player pool, depth of talent, coaching resources and other factors.

February of every year, Basketball Hawkes Bay conduct musters for players who wish to play in the tournament. These are advertised publicly on our website and social media, as well as emailed to our community including schools. Players must be 13 years of age or younger as at 31st December of the year of competition.

In 2022, this is for players born in 2009 & 2010.

Once players are placed in teams, these teams train once a week throughout Term 1 in preparation for the Mel Young Tournament.
