Two more St. Maarten student athletes to try out for the U16 national team.

Rayshawn Emer-Lake (l) and Jeremiah Telemacque are heading to the Netherlands to try out for the U16 national team.

PHILIPSBURG--The Performance Sports Academy negotiated for Jeremiah Telemacque and Rayshawn Emer-Lake to take part in the selection process in which they will be evaluated and given exposure throughout the Netherlands.

Emer-Lake recently returned home from the United States where he plays the guard and forward at Potter House Christian Academy. Rayshawn has made tremendous strides improving his body and basketball IQ. He plays the game very physically; posting up on undersize defenders while taking bigger defenders off the dribble into a pull-up jump shot.
Jeremiah Telemacque, plays point guard for the PSA Spartans U17. Due to his skill set, the decision was made to skip his age category of U15 and enter him into the U17. Jeremiah took the challenge as the youngest player to play in the U17 league and carried his team to victory this season winning the 2022-2023 SYBA U17 championship and also receiving MVP honors.
Malachi Martis and Clorvens Celine already went to the Netherlands. Feedback was very positive. Both young players impressed the coaches with their physicality and athleticism. Martis will be joining the U18 team for the following summer of 2024.
The trip was made possible in part by the Ministry of Education and Sports in particular the department of Sports by their financial contributions. PSA’s goal is to create exposure and opportunities for the youth of St. Maarten and are already planing to host their third annual basketball summer camp. For more information call 526-0753.
