Are SA Juniors Shunning College Basketball?
During the past 10 years it has become more and more clear to me that South Australia has increasingly less juniors applying and going to college in America. There are plenty oppurtunities out there even for less talented players to go to lower division colleges and as i have seen players from other states aim towards their goal of going to the USA, SA hardly have anyone at ALL!!!! Why is this???
To me this is because the coaches in SA dont take pride in junior players success, they are too caught up in how good they look if their team does well and as a junior coach it is your job to develope junior players for the future not to put them down so much that a large percentage of juniors quit..Start growing up and actually help your juniors achieve something special, coaches you have had your turn, now its your turn to pass your knowledge down to the younger ones to help them achieve great things.
