NZBA Executive Committee


"Our family have been volunteers with the NZBA since 2013. We have had a variety of roles including managing, coaching and now as committee members. Our two children have played through the age groups with our son, Aniwaniwa currently on scholarship in Hawaii USA and our daughter Isabella is preparing for her third tour. The NZBA allows players to learn and improve their game and supports players to reach their basketball potential".
