Where will the Regional Academy sessions take place?
Sessions will take place at the regional performance centre in Dundee. Players will be expected to be there at 10:15 for a 10:30 start, and the days will finish at 16:30.
What is commitment for the Regional Academy?
If you sign up for the Regional Academy, you would be expected make an effort to attend all of the sessions as each day builds upon the previous one. This level of commitment aligns with the basketballscotland Regional Academy Talent Behaviours, which can be found in the video here
Do I have to be in the Regional Academy to be considered for the National Academy?
The Regional Academy will allow you to build up towards playing for the National Academy by developing concepts that will be used by the National Academy teams. You will also be in contact with the National Academy coaches on a regular basis, helping you to get to know their expectations. However, players who are participating in other performance environments may also be considered for National Academy teams if they are able to meet the commitments of the programme.
What will the Regional Academy programme cost?
The costs of the programme are dependent on the venues, so details of this will follow. However, all efforts will be made to make the Regional Academy programme affordable for all.
