IPSWICH’s brightest young basketball talent will play against some of the best players in the state this week.
The Ipswich Force will have three teams competing in the Queensland U18 basketball championships taking place on the Gold Coast today.
Trainer Chris Clarkson will lead one of the Force’s guys in Division 2.
« I’ve had the pleasure of coaching these guys every other year for the past eight years, so I’ve coached them four times, » he said.
« We played in the first division a lot. This year we were relegated to the second division. We want to win a medal this year. »
« For many of these guys it will be their last national championship because the under 18s are the last year of junior basketball.
« I want you to go through and hopefully get a medal from this competition for your work over these eight years. »
With a goal of making it to the grand finale of the five-day tournament, Clarkson said the event was invaluable to both the contestants and the wider game.
« I think state championships are held at a high level by all basketball players across the state, » he said.
« It really lets them out and play against players they normally can’t play against.
« You play against players from Cairns to the Gold Coast and every area of basketball in between.
« State championships, like all championships where you bring together a bunch of good players, are absolutely valuable for the development of the sport.
« Some of these players can continue to play professional basketball. We have players who are good enough for that.
« Surely some of them will be going to college in the US for the next few years, hopefully with COVID under control. »
