Edinburgh College is pleased to announce the commencement of the Edinburgh Basketball Academy, offering elite basketball training programs throughout the school term and holidays by professional coaches from the US and locally.
About the Edinburgh Basketball Academy
Term programs run in eight-week blocks, held on a Thursday afternoon. An earlier session from 4-5pm focuses on upper primary students with another session from 5-6.30pm focusing on more advanced and technical skills for older Secondary school players. Holiday clinics are also available during school holiday breaks. Throughout each session, there is a focus on personal leadership, what’s required from athletes at professional level, nutrition and physical health. You can register online for the programs online and keep up to date with program dates and times on Edinburgh College Facebook and Instagram platforms.
Competing locally and at state level
The Edinburgh Basketball Academy is preparing its players to be part of the basketball scene locally, and participate in combined school events each term. The EBA led by Coach Avi hopes to participate in tournaments at both local and state level in the Victorian College Championships and the Australian Schools Championships.
Coach Avi Meyerson has partnered with Edinburgh College as head coach of the Edinburgh Basketball Academy. Avi is the founder of AM Elite Hoops, a premier player development service with camps and academies in Australia and New Zealand. Avi has more than 15 years of advanced basketball coaching experience. Originally from the US, Avi is now based in Australia and is passionate about coaching at the grassroots level.
