Year 10 Knockout

Just heard that Year 10 knockout finals day is coming up in Adelaide. Also just heard that henley have been knocked out of both the girls and boys comp. It is a bit of a shame that a 'sporting school' like henley get knocked out and unable to compete at the day. Am I wrong that they should be one of the best schools since they get devoted training twice a week?
Also very good to hear that other schools are building their teams and getting players to work well together to perform well and win.
on a side note does anybody know who's the coach of henley?

Not at all. Kids get better playing and training district and NITP.

School does minimal in the overall scheme.

Desn't really matter if they don't have the talent, div 5's can train 5 times a week and would improve but would never beat the div 1 team.

Henley is a 'specialist' basketball school. Unfortunately the coaching is largely substandard and the best players don't go there.
It's typical of a Department School, where they don't do anything properly. It's a half arsed program.

"and the best players don't go there."

One of the best players did go there before moving to the centre of excellence

Also talent comes in cycles. The most talented schools will have lean years in between the success

Lol, yea it's all about those cycles. Just random cycles occurring.

And yea I am sure the lad mentioned went there for the fine basketball program that really helped get him to where he is today.

Or you could do a Trinity and go out and recruit players.

That's the issue. The private schools recruit most of the best players. The other players go to schools that suit the families.
No-one with a child that is a gun at basketball is going out of their way to go to Henley to be part of the program. It's just not that good.

You would think as the children in the program have to pay extra to participate in the program that they would use that money to get outside coaches in rather than just using their already hired school teachers who know the bare minimum.

Was paul zbierski one of their coaches? correct me if I am wrong.
