With one month until tip-off, the fixture has officially been announced and tickets have dropped for the Under 18 and Kevin Coombs Cup (KCC) Australian Junior Championships, set to take place in Ballarat from the 10-17 of April.
After hosting a bunch of WNBL games over January, Selkirk Stadium will hold the eight-day event which will see 113 games played across boys, girls and wheelchair competitions. After an interrupted two years, this championship will be the first to see all states and territories field a team and compete for national champion status since pre-pandemic times.
The Under 18’s and KCC will give basketball fans a chance to catch all the upcoming talent in action, with the likes of Ezi Magbegor, Josh Giddey, Jade Melbourne, Taran Armstrong and Jannik Blair to have come through the pathway and compete in recent years.
All games will be streamed live across the Basketball Australia YouTube channel while 24 games will be broadcast live via Kayo Freebies throughout the week.
This championship event is set to launch a massive Junior Championships calendar year, with the Under 20’s and Ivor Burge Championships getting underway on the back of the U18s and KCC, while the Under 16’s and 14’s are locked in for the coming months.
