GALLERY: Our Youth ballers put in work!

Posted: 05-Feb-2019 by PanAm Games 2019

With just five months until Team Australia are set to jet off to the Maccabi Pan-American Games in Mexico City, preparation is well underway.

Our youth basketballers were put through their paces over the weekend at Monash University as they got down to serious training under the watchful eye of head coach Warrick Giddey.

Giddey, a former NBL star boasting over 400 games in Australia's top basketball league, is no stranger to Maccabi, having coached at two Maccabiah Games in the past - most recently guiding a junior girls outfit to a bronze medal in Israel in 2017.

The team trained strongly in Melbourne, and were also treated to a session with team psychologist Mel Weinberg as well as physio Adam Joffe who spoke about injury prevention, nutrition, travel, as their preparations for Mexico ramped up.
