Sturt is in serious trouble both seniors teams are trash and seems like the committee is trash as well. Can someone please tell me where both men's and women’s teams sit on the ladder.

I think Sturt have historically held itself to a higher level that Overall Club champions.

If you look at number of finals won. Results at classics and 14 Nationals, and even depth throughout div 2-3. Sturt aren't where they were 3-5 years ago.

Made 15 out of 16 top 4s at recent State Champs. Has this ever been done? Won u14 Boys in 2015. Top 8 last 2 u14 Girls. Won u16Boys Classics in 2017 and runner up u18g the same year. Current u10s are dominating. Keep trying though mate you're logic is absolute genius level.

Maybe take a look at the State Champs website.

In 2006 Sturt won all trophies and 8 finals out of 16.

In 2011 Sturt won 5 trophies and 7 titles.

And that was all during the Mesecke era. Maybe despite other issues his eye for talent and putting together good teams and matching the right coach is no longer. A few decent coaches left with him as well and domestic is full of external teams
now instead of club built teams to backfill district with. Have to sit tight and see what the next 5 years bring before judgement can be made on the current leadership and new BOM. Until then focus on those clubs that sprout how good they are because of their premier league and then have a good look at their junior programs and attrition rates. Look at the start of a previously successful group when it moves up an age in to a new coaching group and see if they are as good at the end of two years vs the start. Thats a pretty good measure of a coach if they enhance or destroy an age group consistently and how many leave.

Generally speaking in the boys side in SA at this minute the 16s and 18s age groups are very strong indeed this year. With some key appointments in the High Performance program having just taken place and also the one the appt thread is about it will only get stronger.

A club not dominating state champs each year does not necessarily mean that club is getting weaker. It could mean the other clubs are getting it together. Sturt's overall success at state champs should not be overlooked in this environment.

Classics next weekend then U16 nationals in July will back this assertion up. Sturt is in a very healthy position and if they're not to be dominating boy's basketball due to the competitiveness and great work of other clubs that can only be good in the longer term for Sturt.

At least Sturt committee is steady and not changing without votes or transparency and sent the club broke to the point a parent ??? bailed them out of BSA debt of $25K !!!! the truth is out there but smothered by those protecting their own.

Mesecke shouldnt have been at any club with his history of coaching juniors and school teams, no matter how successful you think he was.

My understanding Jankte was never going to get the role nor any other applicant nor did he want it. It was just more mutual intrigue is why he had a conversation with them. It's tough to get professionals into coaching roles like this. Hats off to Sturt for somehow attracting a candidate the calibre of Marcus Wong.
