The Sydney Kings hosted the Stand Tall All Stars recently, treating them to an ‘out of reach’ opportunity in preparation for the Newington Classic, where they won 3 of their 5 games despite a short preparation. Click here for a full wrap of the tournament.
The All Stars team is made up of youth aged from 13 to 17 from diverse cultural backgrounds including – Nigerian/Maltese, Indian, Syrian, Burmese, Vietnamese/Chinese, Maori, Sierra Leone, and Sudanese. They haven’t played together for long but are already forming a bond which is becoming stronger every day both on and off the court with the consistent emphasis on inclusiveness, team attitude and mutual respect of the team.
The Stand Tall All Stars didn’t just watch the Kings training session, as you’ll see in this video.
