2019/20 Rep Team Trial - Question (U14 Age Groups): Males

Brisbane Basketball Inc. provides for three (3) teams per gender in the Under 14 age group with the third team in each age group dependent on factors outlined in the Team Selection Policy.

The teams are designated GOLD, SILVER and BRONZE.

In the past, a handful of players who have missed out on selection to a GOLD team have chosen not to accept an offer of selection to a SILVER team and similar with a BRONZE team. This is entirely the right of any player attending trials. However, to improve the management of the selection process, the promotion of selections during trials, and avoid inviting players to teams that they do not wish to be considered for, the following questions is required to be answered. 

If you are NOT selected to the GOLD team, do you intend to make yourself available for selection consideration to the SILVER team?
If you are NOT selected to either the GOLD or SILVER teams, do you intend to make yourself available for selection consideration to the BRONZE team?

By registering your child to trial for a Brisbane Capitals representative team, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the Brisbane Basketball Inc. Brisbane Capitals Junior Representative Program –Team Selection Policy (Provided below).
By registering your child to trial for a Brisbane Capitals representative team you agree to abide by the terms and conditions of the Team Selection Policy?
You acknowledge that Brisbane Capitals Representative Teams are preparation and performance based teams competing at the highest level (in age group) in Queensland. Although it is a requirement each player is provided on-court opportunities (including practice as well as competition), selection to Brisbane Capitals Representative Teams does not guarantee your child consistent or equal court time.
Player court time is managed by Brisbane Capitals Volunteer Coaches based on a number of variable factors that may change from game to game due to a number of environmental and team considerations. It is not an expectation of BBI nor the Brisbane Capitals Performance Program to award each player "equal" court time. Note: the Brisbane Capitals aim to support player development in all Under 12 teams and the Under 14 Silver and Bronze teams with a "balanced approach" to court time, considering the individual context of the game - i.e. elimination game or final - and each players developmental needs and abilities.
In the case of any appeal, you acknowledge that you will follow the appeals procedure set out in the policy (section 11) and will not pursue any action in the Civil Courts in relation to the selection.

The Brisbane Capitals Performance Program is the elite basketball program of Brisbane Basketball Inc. (BBI) and grouped into two programs: Senior Performance Program (QBL, SBL and U21) and Junior Performance Program (U18 - U12). Brisbane Capitals Junior and Senior Representative Teams span the entire participation, development, and performance spectrum and cater for children (U12's) through to older adolescents and adults (QBL, U18's etc.). The Junior Representative Teams form an important part of the Brisbane Capitals Performance Program framework; which involves the careful planning and synchronisation of player development, performance and progression from U12 – QBL (dependent on selection). It forms an essential pathway for players and coaches to progress onto State and National Performance Programs. Consequently, the Junior Representative Team Program provides further developmental avenues for our Coaches, as well as Players.



At the junior (U12 - U18) and introductory senior (U21, SBL) level, the BQJBC and State Championships provide competition at the very highest level in Queensland and are of importance and relevance in developing successful players in preparation for Australian Club Championships (U14) and Australian Junior Championships (U16 – U20). At the senior level, the QBL provides competition underpinning the Women's and Men's National Basketball Leagues. BBI is committed to selecting players capable of being competitive at the representative level or who demonstrate the future capacity to perform at the representative level of higher. 


Comment on Project Player Considerations: Due to the late-specialisation nature of basketball and the importance of nurturing the development of late developers, it is important to note that both the Talent Confirmation (GOLD) and Talent Development (BRONZE/SILVER) teams are strongly encouraged to identify and select project players where appropriate. Many qualities that distinguish top athletic performers in adulthood do not appear until late adolescence, including: aerobic power, muscular strength, motor skill execution, perceptual-action coupling, game understanding, strategy and awareness (commonly known as Basketball IQ). As the Brisbane Capitals provide teams that look at the future progression of players (12 - 36 month period) it is essential to be mindful that innate, pre-adolescent and adolescent characteristics do not automatically translate into exceptional performance in older adolescence or adulthood. This is particularly evident with the transition from Under 14's to Under16's & Under 18's; consequently, selectors are encouraged and provided guidance to consider players that, although may not be "performing" against their peers in their junior age groups, do present with unique skills, talents, and athleticism that align them to future exceptional performance.


3. OBJECTIVE (Junior Teams)

To select two Talent Confirmation (GOLD) Teams of 10 players per each age group (1 female and 1 male) as the Premier Representative Team for that age group to compete in division one of the BQJBC and State Championships. In addition, dependent on depth of talent and available coaching expertise, select a minimum of two Talent Development (BRONZE/SILVER) Teams of 10 players in each age group (min. 1 female and 1 male) in support of BBI's commitment to broaden and deepen the talent pool for future Talent Confirmation teams in the next 12 - 36 months.



To ensure a transparent selection process, BBI has set out specific eligibility criteria to be applied across all Brisbane Capitals Junior Representative Teams. This is to make certain the selection of players is fair and in accordance with the above objectives.

To be eligible for selection, the Transfer MUST be approved by BQ.  Note: Permission to Train forms are no longer accepted by BBI for representative team trial purposes.



To ensure a transparent selection process, BBI has set out specific selection criteria to be used across all Brisbane Capitals Representative Teams. This will make certain the selection of players is fair and in accordance with the objective of this policy.


Basketball is a complex, dynamic, multi-faceted, open-skill sport with a variable game environment, which impacts on performance. Consequently, there is no single objective measure that can be used to compare one player against another. Although the attributes that affect performance can be defined (as selection criteria), it is impossible to objectively define a set “standard” for these criteria, relative to successfully performing in a specific event. Consequently the process of selection requires a selector to subjectively weigh up, assess and define what they believe the standard of an individual player is, against the criteria. This is a subjective decision tempered by the experience and expertise of the selector. Consequently, subjectivity will always remain an unavoidable element of selection.


Processes and procedures for Brisbane Capitals selection are designed to overcome any of the more undesirable elements of subjectivity in selection, such as bias, prejudice, or lack of expertise. Many layers of procedure have been identified to ensure that the negative impact of these elements will have been counteracted prior to a final selection decision being made.


Players are eligible to be considered for selection once they have successfully met the Eligibility Criteria set out in Section 4.


Brisbane Capitals Junior Representative Teams use the following five (5) selection criteria as a basis of selection – Character, Skill & Talent, Athleticism, Relevant Performances at Previous Events, and Considerations where possible of a Balanced Group of Players taking into account position specific attributes where practicable. 


Subject to the overriding factors described in Section 9, the Representative Team will be selected according to the following:




5.1. CHARACTER “the quality of moral strength & integrity”

  • Team First Attitude: Basketball is a team sport and often requires players to take on roles and responsibilities for the benefit of the team, which will require personal sacrifice for the team - selflessness
    Motivation, Enthusiasm and Energy: The postive internal drive within a player to improve, to put in extra time to develop, everytime they either visualise or step onto the court. 
    Effort and Focus: The attention each player gives to putting in their best effort each and everytime they practice and compete.
  • Maturity: Do not need to be continually directed what to do. They show initiative, think of others first, and are resilient under pressure not allowing petty things distract them from the task at hand.
    Respectful: Towards self; team mates; opposition; game; officials; spectators; program and coaching staff
    Positive Attitude: Individual application in training and competition. Attendance, availability and ability to rehabilitate from injury.
  • Competitive ability: Mentally tough, resilience and ability to deal with adversity both On & Off the court. Temperament, determination, commitment, coping with setbacks/criticism, and persistence.
  • Coachable: Ability to listen, learn, retain, and apply the skills of basketball; e.g. the adaption of the player to the performance environment through the application of game observations, and coach instructions, feedback, and direction.
  • Responsibility: Responsible for own actions & accountable for own performance.
  • Compatibility: Individual’s ability to “fit in” and influence the team in a positive manner.
  • Openness: Ability of the player to communicate positively with staff and be open to accept suggestions from coaching staff regarding performance improvement. Players should be able to verbalize concerns regarding coaching and team issues in a calm, mature and non-emotive manner to allow for positive discussion to resolve problems.

5.2. SKILL “an ability to do something well, due to knowledge, practice, training etc” & TALENT “a natural or acquired ability, especially an outstanding one”

To what extent does the player possess a level of skill or talent that is commensurate with the demands of the game at her/his level and in relation to other competitors (considering team balance requirements outlined in 5.5 below)

  • Rate of improvement and ability to learn: Implied through improved performance. Weight is placed on player’s ability to learn rather than on what they have learnt. Current performance level relative to past performances (including the ability to apply coach feedback). This is particularly important for the identification and selection of project players.
  • Technical Competence: Capability of player to perform skills under pressure, including finishing, shooting, dribbling, passing, receiving, on ball containment.
  • Tactical Nous – Tactical Ability: Includes reading the play, involvement in the game, on-field decision-making and positional flexibility. Ability to apply and utilise information provided by coaching staff and related to team and individual performance.
  • Game Awareness & Understanding: Uses rules of the game ethically, is aware of score, clock, foul count, hot hand, defensive weak link, understands the importance of the pillars of offence i.e. spacing, positioning, timing etc., and defence i.e. ball pressure, possession, rebounding etc.
  • Pattern Recognition, Anticipation, Problem Solving & Decision Making (Perceptual Cognitive Skills): Reads Offensive and Defensive cues, and the tempo of the game to the teams' advantage. Use of team tactics to work for high percentage offensive plays (i.e. recognise and find the advantage, navigate denial or blitzing defences, makes plays off the dribble or catch, get team mate open etc.) or take away opponents strengths (i.e. defending the low post different ways within the team defensive plan, forcing a shooter to drive, or take away a players right hand, safety - no lay up).  
  • Mental Skills: Including a growth mindset (open to taking on difficult challenges and finding away to overcome them), task orientation to improve skills, stay focused/in the moment when under pressure, ability to deal effectively with adversity (next play approach).
  • Areas of Impact: The extent to which a player impacts the game in a positive and constructive way - i.e. defensive stopper, rebounder, gets and keeps possession for the team (loose ball, is efficient with ball - no turnovers, high percentage plays), creates for team mates and gets them open, scorer, shooter, team leader (by example, encouragement and enforcement).
  • Contributions: To what extent does this player bring something extra to the team that coaches feel will be invaluable or required. Areas such as leadership, team spirit, and team unity (mateship).
  • Promise: Brisbane Basketball is committed to the identification and selection of Project Players who possess the aptitude to grow as a player and qualitities that coaches deem so special that opportunity must be given now to this player to develop on one of the teams. 

5.3. ATHLETICISM “physically strong & active”

Physical capacities and attributes that lend themselves to dynamic requirements of basketball. Examples:

  • Speed and Agility;
  • Height, Size, and Length;
  • Physically Tough;
  • Reaction and Anticipation (Quick Hands);
  • Physical Condition (fitness)

5.4. RELEVANT PERFORMANCES AT PREVIOUS EVENTS within the twelve months prior to selection to the squad or team. Events include, but are not limited to, the following:
Note: Although they may be used as a reference by the selection panel, statistical achievements at the club or school level are NOT definitive nor all-encompassing representations of a child's talent, ability or capability at the representative level. Innate, pre-adolescent or adolescent characteristics do not automatically translate into exceptional performance in older adolescents or adult representative teams. Hence the make up of Under 16 and Under 18 GOLD/SILVER/BRONZE representative teams are often quite different from two or more years earlier.  

  • Brisbane Capitals Junior Representative Team Selection trials.
  • International junior events (U17 & U19 Australian Junior Programs)
  • National junior events (Australian Junior Championships, Australian Development Camps, Australian School Championships)
  • State events (State Championships, BQJBC, NPP, SPP and FDP camps)
  • BBI local club competitions and programs (Junior and Senior)
  • Other competitions which may be considered (where players have competed/participated such as school competitions)

5.5. A BALANCED GROUP OF PLAYERS (in accordance with 6.4. below): Where possible with consideration of playing positions, identification of project players, enabling development of a team which matches the desired playing approaches and strategies. It is important to recognise that the selection panel is not necessarily selecting the "10 Best" players as viewed by popular opinion, but they will do their utmost to select 10 players that they believe will fit together to make the best team. 



5A.1. Where a Head Coach has additional “Team Specific” selection criteria; they are to provide these to each athlete (parent/guardian) before the first selection event (this may include regular updates throughout the course of the selection process).

5A.2. Commitment to Team: To what extent are players able to commit to, and comply with, the demands of the representative team practice and competition calendar requirements.

5A.3. It is the players (and parent/guardian) responsibility to read and understand the selection criteria, and any additional selection criteria set by the coaching staff.

5A.4. Previous selection to a representative team does NOT guarantee future representative team selection. Furthermore, previous non-selection does NOT omit a player from future representative team selection.





When considering team selections, it is important to select players in teams (Talent Confirmation or Talent Development) that are best suited to their stage of development as well as recognising individual player's commitment to the program (including attendance at practice) self-development and effort. 

6.1. BBI assesses each registered player for trials against the Eligibility Criteria in Section 4. All ineligible players will be notified BEFORE invitations are sent to successful players. 
6.2. BBI appoints the Selection Panel as per section 7.
