Brody Perry selected in U17 Men's National Team

11 Jun

A huge achievement for Brody Perry, his family and the Franklin Basketball Association!

Brody was selected for the U17 Men's National Team that are competing in the U16 FIBA Asia Cup in Qatar!

The U17 Men’s National Team headed to the U16 FIBA Asia Cup in Qatar on Thursday, in the side’s first taste of international action in the past two years.The 12-man team departed Auckland Airport for Doha on Thursday morning, where they'll prepare to face Kazakhstan on Sun 12 June and Korea on Tue 14 June.

We wish Brody and his team all the best as they compete in this competition but also seek a secure a spot for the U17 Men’s FIBA World Cup which will be played in Spain in July – with the top four teams in Doha qualifying for the World Cup.

Thank you to everyone who has contributed to the fundraising to help support Brody and the Perry family on getting Brody to Doha! Our FBA Community are backing you all the way and we are excited to see more of our young talent follow in your footsteps!
