State Coach Responsibilities
Don't want to start a bitch session about state coaches cause I reckon they would have a pretty hard gig to start with. I coach div1 boys and dealing with player and parent ego's can be hard enough, let alone with the 'elite' players and their parents who have a reputation on the line.
My question is, are the state coaches required to conduct a review of their own players and also those from the other states? If they do, are they readily available? If not, wouldn't it be a great tool to analyse our talent compared to other states and use this to help plan the development of our players. I'm not talking about making this available to sasi players only, as I'm sure most would agree that an overall strong competition is what we are after.
In no way am I shying away from the fact that club coaches need to develop their players, but an idea of positions and skills SA is either strong or lacking in may be of benefit?
