THE Fiji Youth National Under 18 3x3 Basketball Team left the country yesterday to compete in the inaugural International Basketball Foundation (IBF) Youth Leadership Under 18 Cup.
The competition begins today in Bali, Indonesia.
The Fiji team is represented by four players who were winners from the national under 18 3x3 mixed basketball competition that was held at Damodar City car park earlier last month.
Basketball Fiji chief operating officer Laisiasa Puamau said Fiji’s participation in this event would help contribute to development of young players in the sport.
“Team Fijis participation in this event will not only be to compete but the players have a chance to participate in a youth leadership workshop that we believe will contribute in developing future leaders within the sport and in the country,” said Puamau
