YOUNGSTERS EYE WEST ASIAN BASKETBALL CHAMPIONSHIP
Jordan’s up and coming basketball players have launched their final month of preparations as the Kingdom counts down to hosting the West Asian Youth Basketball Championship from February 11-15.
Training is being undertaken every day at the Prince Hamzeh Arena under the supervision of national coach, Yousef Abu Baker, who is focussing on both fitness and team tactics.
“We stepped up our squad training last Saturday,” said Abu Baker.
“We have assembled a very good group of players who are capable of performing well and giving the home fans something to smile about.
“We have a long way to go yet and the fitness levels are not where they should be but that will change as the tournament approaches and we step up the intensity at training.”
