Obviously last years poor results count for nothing...Coaching jobs for Mr Bald's mates! Any coach that poses a threat to Mr Bald is quickly shown the door at SA Country Town...

After this years results at Nationals 18's and 16;s you would think some changes would be made. Looks like these results are satisfactory. Thanks parents for all of your money. It has been well spent. Oops I missed a change, Patto's back.???

They seem to be a bit light on for assistants.

Seriously, that is a very very ordinary list of names. Most would not even get a Div 1 spot at most clubs, let alone get a look in at State.

We played the Yorke Valley U16 girls at country champs and I was very impressed with the way they played and they dominated the grand final. Checked out who was their coach and wondered why she did not at least coach in Albury last year. After checking the coaches above I cannot see her name again. Can someone from Yorke Valley post some information please.

Someone should ask Semmens, Matho & Ireland why they aren't involved in SA Country Basketball anymore? They all have very similiar reasons I'm told...

If all three weren't the best applicant for the position - we all now this question is a joke after seeing the names at the top.

The 'big three' did not apply for coaching positions which is a huge loss to SA country kids- their reasons ? I can't speak for them but it would seem they are disillusioned with the 'leadership' at SA country.

Don't assume it will get better fast, the same problem of JB has been there for years now and the council don't have the balls to do anything about it. We have been out of SAC for a number of years now and the problems being experienced now is just like deja vu. It won't change til jb is gone.

The "Big Three" now thats funny, you guys need to stop getting on here and writing about yourselves. If this is the only complaints after this years appointments SAC are doing well. Remember you represent 0.00000001%

If any of you had half a clue about basketball you would soon realise the Girls program is doing fine. They consistently make the top 10 and have even won a couple of medals. If there is an area of concern its the boys program. The U18 and U16 results this year were disgusting, and some people should accountable for it. Not just players blamed.

The previous year was the same as well.

The standard of boys coaching is the problem in SAC

I been around SAC for many years and I can tell you the girls program is not doing fine. Many of us parents are not happy but there are no other options available. If you want to lodge a complaint you lodge it with the person that IS the problem. Thought James Rattus was going to sort out the problem but he like some quality coaches has left.

Seems like this topic is a great way for 'parents' to voice their opinion without having the guts to put their name to the post!! Their kids must have not have made a state team one year maybe!

What a troll of a comment - making reference to their size & apparently their ego's. Both Trev & Matho have coached for many years at District & State Level & have made a good contribution with their coaching efforts. My daughter had been coached by both of them & she really enjoyed their coaching expertise & their weird sense of humour.

Well interesting comments from some. Yes I agree there are some big names with lots of experience missing from the coaches selected. Namely the big three, Trevor, Matho and Trudy all three took the 16 girls to a Silver medal in Ulverstone, and just one of them let alone 3 would have more experience than most selected. BUT yes all three have had enough of the polotics and bullshit, so they have called it quits.

With no changes, there will be no growth

If the person can't change, change the person?

It is sad to see a State program run by individuals agendas

There needs to be an overhaul for the growth of the program, coaches and athletes

Various programs state wide, loacal, association, district metro and country need to form some liking interests for the betterment of basketball in the state as well as the coaches and players.

Right now Playing for SAC is insignificant, and in some cases detramental to the Athlets progress and Growth.

Well said 395751 "If the person can't change then change the person." Totally agree UNTIL they get rid of the problem, nothing is going to change, it is just going to go from bad to worse. I think JB has got 9 lives or maybe more ???

Same old problem,only coaches that agree with JB and support him are picked, so the results at this years U18 nationals were pathetic.So all you need to do to see how well the team went this year is look at the results. 2 wins and 6 losses, a very poor result in anybody's language, so work it out for yourself if you think the two SAC coaches this year were any good!!

Problem is players and coaches have walked away from the program now, at all levels. SAC have returned to the laughing of Basketball Australia.

And sadly no matter what the member associations think nothing is done about it.

It would be easier to go back over old threads to see the problem with Jason bald. It hasn't changed for years, very unprofessional and the board don't have the balls to get rid of him, but it's beyond me as to why. It's just a job for him, no passion for the game or care for the kids.

ok fair enough.

so no passion or care... how do you judge that?

what are his coaching credentials? if any.

if hes not the right person who is? (remembering price range)

do people write to the board? or just complain?.
