For the better part of the last decade the Depiro Basketball Club have focused much of their efforts on establishing a strong nursery, constantly figuring as main contenders in the Youth and Junior Sectors. In fact many players not only established themselves with the senior squad but having the privilege of representing their country at National Team Level.
The 2011-2012 basketball season was no exception as the majority of these Youth and Junior teams have once again featured as main contenders within their respective categories.
The under 14 Girls team, last year coached by Antoinette Borg, not only repeated last year’s success of winning the championship but went a step further by finishing this season unbeaten with 12 consecutive wins under the guidance of first year coach Maltese/Australian Samantha Brincat. Both these coaches, who feature as teammates in the Senior Women’s team, have vast playing experience both locally and abroad, and have shown tremendous ability in communicating their knowledge and skills to this promising group of young players.
With the season nearing its completion the Depiro Basketball Club looks forward to further success within the youth categories and wishes their teams the best of luck for the remaining matches
