Basketball Ireland has released a promotional video to mark just one month to go until the FIBA Under 18 Women’s European Championship Division B, which tips off in Dublin this August.
The championships will run from August 4-13th at the National Basketball Arena in Tallaght and the Sport Ireland National Indoor Arena in Abbotstown, and will see 23 countries competing for glory.
The video features all twelve of the Ireland Under 18 Women’s team and looks at what it means to this group of players to not only be representing themselves, friends and family on a European stage, but to also be wearing the Ireland jersey on home turf, in front of home support.
“We are all really looking forward to what will be an experience of a lifetime for the squad,” said Ireland Under 18 Women’s Head Coach Tommy O’Mahony.
“They are hard at work making sure that they will be in peak condition come August, and there’s no doubt that this will be a great occasion for the basketball community in Ireland.”
“European Championships don’t come to your country every year so while it’s here, we should all take advantage of it and take pride in the fact that it’s here. Hopefully everyone will get behind the girls this year.”
