Hi! My name is Juhi Balu, I am a 14 year old female basketball player, who has been given the amazing opportunity to represent Australia in an upcoming Amateur Athletic Union (AAU) college recruitment tournament in America with AUSA Hoops Basketball. Players have been selected from all over Australia, and I will be one of the youngest girls going on tour. In addition to AUSA, I am a proud member of some other wonderful basketball communities who have helped me get to this point, and who help me get better every day; namely Western Sydney Wolves, Bigtime Basketball, Breakdown Basketball, and Hills Hornets.


I am super excited to go on this tour, as I believe I will get a massive amount of development from this experience, and I will get to see if I have what It takes to play at college level basketball in the future. This tour presents a huge opportunity for me as a female athlete, as I dream not only of my own development and goals in basketball, but also being able to help the development of other aspiring female athletes coming through the program in the future. I believe my story can benefit and inspire others. A couple of years ago, I almost gave up the game I love because I lost the joy of playing. The game was starting to feel like it was more about being what others expected me to be, instead of what I wanted to be. Now, with lots of support and determination, I've overcome this and found my love of the game again.


Become a part of 'Team Juhi' by donating and partnering in my AUSA Hoops Tour experience. Engage in my tour journey with me online and help me inspire other young women in the Western Sydney region with my story and experiences to take up basketball and fulfil their sporting dreams. Help me show what the sport has to offer young women's mental and physical health, development, and that there are pathways for young women to reach their goals in elite basketball. 



I would be forever grateful for any contribution that you could make towards this dream of mine. You will become not only a part of helping me realise my dream, but building a community of basketball.


Every dollar you contribute will help me to work harder, run faster, jump higher, speak louder, and shoot for the stars!I
