Women's COE

I've heard that Downer is back and yet another girl has left the program.

What is going on there?

In my opinion it is a sad indulgence that BA cannot afford when there are so many better ways to spend the limited dollars. It appears the only reason the girls go there is the hope it guarantees them a spot in a junior national team.

Shut it down.

Why do they need this live in situation they have, why can they not have request camps throughout the year, that way they can also get to see a wider range of players

Watched them play last week and they are in good hands with Veal.
The program has produced many stars, not sure why it would be removed.

And it probably is the best development program in the world in terms of teaching winning basketball. That's why we are an elite female bball nation despite being a small country.

Probably because they are all nursing injuries, and that's the whole crux of the issue with the CofE, these girls in particular are at a point in their growth especially the taller ones that too much of a "good thing"is actually bad fir them

They also are still kids, who should also be focusing on not only education but some normality of social life even if it’s just family.

They have little to no supervision, and it’s badically training drills every day multiple times, they play against each other fir the most part or do individual shooting.

All these they could do without the live in component, and at a reduced rate to avoid the injuries these athletes seem to be plagued by.

If they removed that limited program with only a select few, they would also have access to a wider talent pool
