We are delighted to be sponsoring 15 year old Connor Whitney-Embleton in the Wales U16 Basketball Squad!
Conor started playing basketball when he was at Porthcawl Comprehensive School and then went on to join local basketball team the Cynffig Cougars. After 3 months with the Cynffig Cougars, Connor was put forward for Wales U12 team and played for the Welsh B team before he was promoted to the Welsh A team. While with the U12’s, Conor won the Most Valuable Player award.
3 years later, Conor’s passion for basketball has continued to grow and his list of achievements are really spectacular – including attending the Red Auerbach Basketball Camp in Boston, Massachusetts.
Connor has been selected for the Welsh squad once again and has the opportunity to compete in Paris in May 2020.
Conor has excellent commitment and sportsmanship along with a high level of maturity and professionalism, especially considering his age, and he is eagerly looking forward to having the honour of representing his country on the international stage with the backing of Apollo Teaching.
