Sydney Kings guard Jason Cadee – a key component of Australia’s Asia Cup glory – credits his time at Westfields Sports High School as “invaluable”.
Cadee was speaking at the launch of the partnership between the NSW Sports High Schools Association and Basketball NSW (BNSW) on Monday.
The partnership will include coach and player development, implementation of a fully supported high performance curriculum and increased opportunities for talent identification.
“Those extra training sessions over the six years I was there were invaluable…it was a great experience and I feel very privileged to have been there. The supportive environment at Westfields enabled me to compete at the highest levels whilst still completing my HSC,” Cadee said.
President of the NSW Sports High School Association and Westfields Sports principal Roger Davis said the new partnership will “absolutely increase the pool of talented basketballers”.
