SEPTEMBER 2022, The Central Coast Academy of Sport (CCAS) is delighted with the strength in numbers of athletes seeking to gain a scholarship position within the CCAS Basketball Program.  On top of the current enrolment it is pleasing to also announce the ongoing support by local company Central Coast Granite.

The basketball program is known for the depth of talent and success that has followed this program over many years. When selection trials commence it appears the 2022-23 program will be no different due to the number of interested athletes seeking to gain a position within the squad of 32.  The program which forms part of the endorsed athlete pathway in partnership with Basketball NSW will again be finalizing selections in the coming weeks, at the trials 16 boys and 16 girls will be chosen to undertake the six month off season program.

In more great news for the sport Central Coast Granite a local family owned business has again aligned significant support to the program. The support provided by Central Coast Granite will in essence provide a huge cost saving for participants selected to the program.  One of the most difficult barriers to overcome in recent years is the cost of delivering such an intensive, robust program and Central Coast Granite has helped reduced this barrier to participation.

Ian Robilliard OAM, the CCAS Managing Director, said of the program: “What an amazing week in sport, athlete registrations are incredibly strong, corporate support by Central Coast Granite is now confirmed and we are working closely with Basketball NSW to ensure this program and indeed those across the regional academy network are making a difference in regional NSW. I’m delighted to again be working with Jim Cunnington and his family at CCG, Jim has a close affinity with the sport and his genuine care and interest in providing this level of support is so significant to the whole program.  I’m am also very relieved to be close to finalizing a global agreement with Basketball NSW to continue to build opportunities for athletes across the regional academy network.”

Jim Cunnington the Managing Director of Central Coast Granite said of the renewed support to the basketball program: “Central Coast Granite and the Cunnington Family are proud to be associated with the Central Coast Academy of Sport basketball program and the great work that the Academy is doing with basketball on the Central Coast. The results are evident especially with the Rebels, Waves and Crusaders Programs. We have guaranteed our ongoing support for the next 3 years.”
