Athlete Selection Criteria

The following is a set of selection criteria for how we select players into various teams:

  • Outstanding desire and commitment to working hard at improving their mental and physical basketball skills
  • Potential to compete successfully at club level and beyond
  • Athletic ability (e.g. speed, height, quick hands, strength)
  • Desire to become a better player
  • Potential to be socially compatible and display a sense of "team ethic" within a group
  • Demonstrated attitude to become an exceptional basketball player
  • Be highly receptive to coaching
  • Demonstrated desire to succeed, not only in basketball, but in education, vocation and personal life

Player selections are always subjective but ultimately players with the above characteristics are the ones that will succeed at Centrals and beyond.

Our Coaches are encouraged to provide these criteria to Lions' players.
