Horsham Hornets' Sam Breuer, Austin McKenzie, Grace Manserra and Toby Lakin will represent Victoria Country at the Australian Country Junior Basketball Cup in Albury during the week.
The talented youngsters will compete for one of two Victoria Country sides at each age group, with Breuer and McKenzie playing for the under-18s, Manserra the under-16s and Lakin the under-14s.
Horsham Basketball Association's Rebecca McIntyre said it was a fantastic opportunity for the four participants, and illustrated the strength of junior basketball in Horsham.
"Having Aussie, Sam, Toby and Grace coming up, it's fantastic to see that continued representation of what we're doing here in Horsham and the strength of our junior program," McIntyre said.
The event faced the possibility of cancellation earlier this month due to the impact of fires burning in Victoria's north east.
The tournament was given the go-ahead on Thursday, despite concerns about smoke and air quality.
"We understand that there will be some air quality issues and we will endeavor to manage the competition around those issues as they occur," organisers said in a statement.
"There are no fire alerts for the immediate Albury-Wodonga area. The predicted temperature range for the next week is low to mid 30s.
"We urge everyone travelling to the event to keep abreast of any media announcements regarding any new fire emergencies and plan your travel accordingly."
