Westlake Boys Basketball Tour to USA 2018

Support our Team for the 2018 Tour

There is no better place for the Westlake Boys to visit than the USA... birthplace of basketball! Created in 1891, by a physical education professor and instructor at the YMCA who was trying to keep his gym class active on a rainy day. He sought a vigorous indoor game to keep his students occupied and at proper levels of fitness during the long winters. With the basic rules written, a peach basket fixed to a 3.05m elevated track and a soccer ball in hand the game had begun. Many years later Basketball is one of the most popular sports played in schools and professionally throughout the USA.

The Westlake BHS basketball tour represents a unique opportunity for the boys to challenge themselves against competitive opposition. The boys will broaden their educational and sporting horizons both on and off the field as they explore California, Phoenix and Arizona

Who needs your support?

In December 2018, 17 boys from Westlake Boys High School who are passionate about basketball, will be travelling to the USA to attend professional coaching clinics, play competitive games, attend NBA games and live their basketball dreams.
They will undoubtedly return with a sense of achievement, team resolve and camaraderie that will put them in an enviable position for the season ahead.
