Youth Development Programme (YDP)
Due to the growing interest amongst school children for basketball a youth development program was founded in 1998 with a total number of 90 students only from the schools of Male’. With the help of the National and senior coaches in the country we proudly train today a total number of 400 students from almost all schools in six different age groups through out the year. Maldivian children today have the opportunity to participate in this program from the age of four to the age of seventeen. More than half of the current National Team and the 1st Division players have come through this program successfully. The children in this program have annual competitions and a basketball carnival to show their talents and to prepare them for senior level basketball.
