The Sydney Uni Basketball Club provides everyone on campus with a chance to get on a court, no matter their skill level or experience.
The student-led Basketball Club offers weekly scrimmages and pick-up games on campus, as well as entering teams in Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness’ lunchtime social basketball competitions during semester.
Sydney Uni Basketball is excited to announce the launch of its new High Performance Program, aimed at providing talented student-athletes with the opportunity to continue their basketball development while studying at Sydney University.
The High Performance Program is set to establish a men’s and women’s high performance squad consisting of 12 students each who will represent Sydney University in a number of inter-varsity events throughout 2021, including the inaugural University Basketball League (UBL).
Sydney Uni Basketball are thrilled to have secured the leadership of both Tom and Renae Garlepp to lead the prospective squads in the UBL next year. Tom and Renae will lead the delivery of a preseason training schedule for both squads, which will see squad members benefit from structured team and individual training throughout February and March in the lead up to the UBL. Squad members will also benefit from strength and conditioning training with Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness’ High Performance Manager Sam Pervan (formerly with the Sydney Kings).
The HP Program is designed to provide additional opportunities (on top of traditional club and state/national program commitments) to squad members, ensuring their studies and future are can be adequately supported while they continue to develop on the court. By providing opportunities to represent Sydney University in competitions such as the UBL, squad members will also benefit from the chance to play against talented basketballers across the country, gaining additional exposure in Australia’s basketball landscape.
