Congratulations to WA-NTIP squad members Mikayla Pirini (Willetton) and Luke Roberts (Rockingham) for their selection to represent Australia at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival 3 x 3 tournament in January.
After coaching the Australian Girls at the U18 World Championships Wanneroo Coach Corrie Wellsteed has been named as the Womens Coach.
The 3 on 3 competition is set to be one of the highlights of the Festival with the high intensity format featuring three athletes on each side playing on a half-court with only one substitute and a single ten minute period.
The competition will take place at Sydney’s iconic Darling Harbour with Australia welcoming a host of strong teams from New Zealand, Great Britain, China, Japan and a combined Oceania team.
The AYOF will feature 30 nations competing in 17 sports and will take place throughout Sydney from January 16-20.
