Why don't they get a high profile coach to run the program?

I don't think that many of the very best players go to Henley for the basketball program. Most either stay in their original/zoned school or head in to the private system. Scholarships are also an issue.
Basically its not a good enough program to attract the best players.

What do you mean 'major downfall' Kids move up year levels all the time and some may drop out of the programme because they focus more on their studies.
I know the 8/9 and year 10 boys are playing in the knock out finals still

It's also harder for a public school like Henley to 'hold’ kids back in year levels , some of the private schools have 20 yo playing in there open teams , probably more applicable in the men’s than women’s comp

8/9 girls and 10 girls both in knockout finals day.

8/9 girls rely heavily on 2 players. 1 x year 9 that plays as a bottom age U18 div 1 West and 1 x year 8 that plays as a bottom age U16 div 1 Forestville. Like the boys side the talent drops off quickly.

Most kids do the program as a way to get into the school as it is a very good public high school and drop out of the program once they finish the 2 year minimum commitment.

8/9 boys and Open girls won last year so they aren't doing too badly. Couple of premier league players as well.

totally agree with you! saw her playing last year while she was in year 8 it was the annual st michaels vs henley game and she dominated. From what i saw she was gased and did not get a sub all game but she kept producing at both ends for them.

Yes, I did use the name Diona but that was because it was the suggested name by the site.

Plus to confirm I have to connections to this kid just seen her play a couple of times as my boys go to St Michaels.

Definitely not her parent or Guardian.

Hey Diona if you weren't pretending to be a different person than Triton, why would you start your post replying to Triton's post with
"totally agree with you!"?

You replied agreeing with yourself. And then reused both names again later in the thread. Whether or not the site suggested those names is hardly relevant.

Maybe Triton and Diona are two personalities in one person's head, constantly agreeing with one another and creating an internal echo chamber.
