The Hawthorn Magic Development Squad is an invitational program for athletes born in 2011, 2012 & 2013 that currently participate in Basketball Hawthorn’s junior domestic competition.
The program is a skills development & pathway program designed to support and complement athletes’ weekly domestic club training.
Athletes are trained by current Hawthorn Magic coaches who run sessions that incorporate competitive skills training and game tactical awareness. The program is designed to assist athletes wanting to make the transition from domestic to representative basketball.
Selection is based on an athletes’ development qualities, character to compete, athletic ability, and basketball skills. Athletes are identified either by Domestic Club nomination or by Hawthorn Magic’s talent scouts who attend games during the junior domestic season.
