Basketball Set to Shine on International Stage

Coomera Anglican College’s CACaburra Basketball Academy has been honoured with an invitation from the Chinese Taipei School Sport Federation to participate in an international basketball tournament, scheduled from Friday, June 14th to Sunday, June 23rd. This prestigious event will see our 2024 Open Basketball Touring Team compete and engage in a blend of cultural programmes, competitive matches, and ceremonial festivities.

Head of Sports at Coomera Anglican College, Anthony Hall, expressed his enthusiasm about this remarkable opportunity.

“Participating in international tournaments like this is crucial for the development of our athletes,” Mr Hall stated.

“It not only provides them with the chance to compete at a higher level but also exposes them to different styles of play and cultural experiences. These opportunities are invaluable in helping our athletes grow both on and off the court.”

The team, led by Coach Frank Goldfinch, Assistant Coach Christiaan Van Peppen, and Manager Anthony Hall, includes a talented roster of 12 players aged from Years 9 – 11. These young athletes have shown exceptional dedication and skill, making them well-prepared to represent Coomera Anglican College on the international stage.

Coomera Anglican College’s Basketball Academy is known for its training environment, which is designed to foster the best performance from all athletes. The Academy offers a developmental programme for students from Years 4 to 12, identified for their basketball talent. Our programme not only prepares athletes for progression through the Basketball Australia pathways but also provides access to advanced coaching, ensuring they are equipped to reach different levels of competition.

Mr Hall emphasised, “Our comprehensive training programme focuses on the advancement of skills, physicality, and game sense, while also nurturing mentally strong and well-educated athletes. This international tournament will serve as a platform for our players to apply what they’ve learned and experience the game in a global context.”

The combination of competitive play and cultural immersion promises to be a transformative experience for the CACaburra Basketball Academy team, reinforcing Coomera Anglican College’s commitment to excellence in sports and holistic student development.
