The next goal for Tahiti Basketball are the 2007 South Pacific Games in Samoa. Unfortunatly, Tahiti won't be able to compete in the FIBA Oceania qualifiying events for the 2006 World Championships, only Australia and New Zealand will. Check the calendar of events for Tahiti from now to the 2007 SPG.


January 15th-23rd: Oceania All-Star Tour
The all-star squad will make a tour in Australia and compete in the Australian Youth Olympic Festival against national teams from Australia, New Zealand and China. There is one player from Tahiti in the squad: Noel Pico. He's training right now to be in a good physical shape.

April: Federal Championship Finals
This is the end of the basketball season in tahiti. Aorai will be looking for a third title in a row. In 2004 they defeated Central in the Final.

July 25th-August 4th: South Pacific Mini-Games
Tahiti is likely to field a basketball team for the Mini-Games in Palau, this would be a great preparation for 2007.

September: Federal Championship kick-off
Tahiti first basketball league would start with 12 teams, the best ones are Aorai, Central & Excelsior.

November: Asia-Pacific Tournament
This year, Tahiti NT made a disapoiting tour in Hawaii, losing four times against hawaiian colleges. This would be a good idea to take another shot.

November: Pacific Champions Cup
The 2005 Cup would be held in Tahiti. The champions from Tahiti, New Caledonia and Wallis&Futuna will play for a spot in the French Cup.


FIBA Oceania Youth Basketball Tournament
In 2004, Tahiti claimed the 6th spot, with a brand new generation they would try to play for a medal. The location for this event hasn't been decided yet.

FIBA Oceania Qualifying Tournament for the U19 & U21 Worlds
Actually there is almost any chances that Tahiti would compete in these events but this could be a good way to improve. Since 2000, only Australia and New Zealand entered the World qualifying events, if a third team would be able to play with them this would be a huge lift to Oceania basketball.

Plus: Federal Championship, Pacific Champions Cup


South Pacific Games
This is the main goal for many Oceania countries in the next four years, We'd see if Tahiti managed to improve its level of play.
Plus: Federal Championship, Pacific Champions Cup
