Basketball England has announced its plans to create a world-class Talent System & Pathway, which will better identify the potential of all stakeholders in the sport at every age and stage.

This system will run over the next three years (2018-2021) and aims to ensure that players, volunteers and professionals develop in an inclusive and progressive pathway and fulfil the sport’s potential.

“We’ve strategically put talent at the very heart of this System and Pathway as it’s that exact attribute that should be the fundamental cornerstone of any sports development programme,” said Basketball England’s Programme & Pathway Integration Manager Charlie Ford.

The GB teams have managed to achieve some excellent results in recent years. More specifically, the Under 18 and Under 20 men both retained their respective FIBA European Division A statuses this year after securing promotion in 2017.
