The advice from coaches over the years was to avoid either. Generally the one exception is in the context of an U18 player playing at ABL level. This has been a forum guideline for 15+ years.

#071 pretty much what WA coach thought too, lucky to get out with the win, just too strong (and tall) down the stretch.
In boys SA Metro will clean sweep their pool WA Metro and QLD south will be fight out #1 in Pool B.

Given that the u14 clubs finals the last time any meaningful national-level event was played in this age group were NSW/Vic in the boys and Vic/Vic in the girls, it's probably fair to say those states are big absences. I doubt that, were they there, they would win the tournament, as we saw how much the lack of competition had knocked the Vics around at 18s. I'm glad the kids who are there are getting to play, but it will be interesting to see how results this time around compare to 18s in a couple of years.

#131 I agree and disagree with you. It will be the biggest achievement in sport for a lot of these kids. To me, that's exactly the reason to 'talk it down.' It's a huge deal in the context of their sporting careers but people acting like any team there is full of future junior national reps or kids with huge pro potential doesn't do these kids any favours. Just makes it harder for them to handle reality. It can be fantastic for them to be there even if it's not a competition of huge significance.

#145, I had 'talk it down' in quotes because I think some people being accused of talking it down are just being realistic. So talking it up/down is clearly a matter of perspective, and either there's no conversation, or you have to accept that some people are going to view the event as more meaningful than others.

Pretty sure all teams there are well aware of who is missing, and I would say most would prefer them to be there, so they can see where they are at. They're not and we know we can't stop the world for a few. It's sad for both sides of the fence. Would the same negativity be spoken if 3 of the others states that are there weren't? Hmmm

Good chance for some others to get noticed too, we all know that at all levels sometimes the top you wear has a bearing on how your talent is perceived!

Realistically all the states that are there have been playing all year. So I'm not sure what people are talking about when they say all the teams have had to suffer the same. I think it’s good they get to play but don’t try to say that all are created equal in their loss. No kids have missed more opportunities than Melbourne kids. So yes be happy others get to play but be mindful of how you try to use everyone has missed out all year to justify it.

If lockdown ends as planned on October 26, Melbourne will have spent 267 days in hard lockdown since March last year - a total of nearly 9 months.

It will beat the next most locked-down city in the world, Buenos Aires, by 22 days.

872222 has a good point. Low numbers in HP program intakes, particularly in higher female age groups seems counter intuitive to keeping/growing a talent pool. This is the age where a lot of girls are lost to sport generally, plus injuries, school, other commitments all add up so you'd think taking more would ensure you constantly have a solid training group to all keep each other on their toes and keep growing the talent base. This year WA u18 girls had 17 in their SPP squad. That is really only 1 or 2 positional injuries away from being stuck with having to send a team that is out of balance, plus looking ahead to the following year and 1 or 2 drop out then you just are limiting your own options

#295 I think the comment definitely comes across that way if you haven't spent a lot of time with the kids, but in this case I don't think it's necessarily misogynist. I've coached a large number of junior boys and girls teams at club, rep and state levels and it's almost always hard to cut the last kids from the boys' side, and almost always hard to fill the last spots in a girls' side. There is an absolutely fair argument to be had about the way we structure sport such that girls are not encouraged into it, and there is a fair argument about coaching styles being oriented to what suits boys/men. So IMO the reasons that the girls' competitions are so much weaker have sexist underpinnings. But pointing out that they are weaker - especially in the context of a discussion that has mostly been about how to better support them - is pretty fair.

Red, Netball is far and away the most popular sport for girls in SA. They have huge numbers in comparison to basketball. AFLW now is also cutting into girls numbers, both of elite, established players as well as future up and comers.

Combine that with the stats that clearly show less girls play sport compared to boys and its a challenge for sports without the big money and profile to compete with the big two.

What can we learn from Netball's dominance? Girls are attracted to an environment that is female centric & dominated by female leadership.

How many visible female leaders (coaches, administrators, officials) does your club have?

Seems to me that an easy way to attract more girls to your club would be to increase your (visible) female leadership.

Or that Netball is a historically Australian sport. It's part of our culture that girls play Netball, boys play Footy.

Go to any country town and their clubs are designed that way, and the Football/Netball Club is the sports mecca of the Country Town.

You can't just parachute a female into a coaching, refereeing or admin role and think that will fix the problem. If they don't have the passion, experience and skills they'll just fail. You need to find the right females who have the time and interest in such roles. That's the challenge. Clubs aren't turning away qualified women from positions, they crave them. But there just aren't many out there.

Strongly disagree, #364. Boys club mentality prevails. Diversity, be it gender- or ethnicity-based is not an aspect that my state puts meaningful effort into. Our best drivers of female-specific environments are elite female players and coaches from outside the state and association pathways.

But why is that? Do you know of local females who have been blocked or not considered fairly? Do you know of any who have been refused opportunity due to their sex?

You can't just say the boys club is to blame if there are no women willing to put up with the hard slog required to do these roles. I'm sure there are many qualified and capable, but they have to be willing. Without proof of biased you can't just claim there is.

I think the structure of rep basketball tournaments could benefit from a rethink.

We lose a lot of girls in the age bracket 15-17.

The fall in interest seems to be particularly hurtful for those clubs in the regions and smaller states. In contrast your "elite" clubs in Dandenong, Bulleens etc in Vic metro region sail through without any problems.

I think the situation can be improved if you give girls in the 15-17 age bracket something to aim at, which helps bind them to their clubs for a couple of more years. A glamour tournament. I suggest a U17 National Club Champs. Representing your local community on a national stage. Bookends the very successful U14 club champs, which is played in all sorts of places around the country.
U17 because it is just before the key HSC year, when the girls tend to scatter. When I have suggested this idea in the past - the Melb/Syd metro brigade oppose it - they cannot see the point. But I guess I am addressing a SA.WA, Tas and Qld crowd here - do you see any merit in this idea?

#377, what on earth?? I'm not just saying it, I have been there and done that and know many many women who have encountered the same. We are held to different standards from the moment we put our hands up. Higher hurdles to clear to be appointed, and higher levels of achievement expected once we're in the roles. If you want to put your head in the sand, mate, that's up to you. But that's the sort of attitude that prevents change, because you think that if YOU haven't seen it/lived it, no one else has. The glass ceiling and glass cliff phenomena are well-documented, the evidence is in. But I don't think you're interested in evidence.

More female coaches administrators ext. is not the problem or the solution. It's visibility of the leagues and players. No male basketball
player is a player because they see men coaching or owning teams. It’s because they see MJ, Lebron, and they want to be like them. The role models need to come from players and promoting them. Also no boy grows up wanting to coach because of Phil Jackson they want to coach because it allows them to still be part of the game at a high level if they don’t make it as a player. This narrative of we need more female role models in coaching and high ranking positions is laughable. What needs to happen is better promotion of the stars of the game. No female player knows who the coach of the Las Vegas Aces is but they know Liz Cambage

Thanks, #464, I hope it pays dividends for the club.

#480, those are not the undertones. Of the people who played the biggest roles on my playing and coaching pathways, a majority were men. For the most part, men made the decisions to give me opportunities, and men advocated on my behalf. There are some incredible people involved in this sport and it is not gender-dependent. But men didn't do those good things for me because women are inherently incapable, they did them because men are in positions of power. We create environments for female athletes that are entirely based on sporting cultures built over decades by and for male athletes and coaches. Then wring our hands and say "oh but so many girls leave the sport between 15 and 17, maybe we should change the age groupings??" No. GIRLS grow up wanting to be Lebron and Steph, too. Then they get to 15 and realise it's never going to happen, and they get sick of being asked to work just as hard as boys for whom there's a real career pathway. They can't go into coaching to stay involved in the game - not if they want to earn a living. Because they'll be expected to coach women. But like I said before, I don't think you're interested in evidence, or fixing things. Your sexism is benevolent, but still very real.

Record could be 0-3 and be successful coaching. Everything has context. Sounds like you have a chip on your shoulder. Either you haven't followed what has transpired or due to your agenda/hate have failed to mention that the team has lost probably their best player due to injury. The results so far have been about as expected under the circumstances.

#527 Maybe or Maybe not.

Maybe having some of the best kids in the age group choose Club over State is something that should be addressed.
Maybe certain kids choosing to drop out due to the coach is something that should be addressed.
Maybe selecting said coach for 2022 before this years Nationals was a mistake.
Maybe running one player for almost the entire game despite having his worst game of the Tournament and costing them points at both ends was a mistake.
Maybe another boys failure for a State which used to be 2nd only behind Vic in Boys needs to be addressed.
Maybe injury is a cop out.
Maybe a State which has lost less minimal activity, (certainly less than QLD who has two teams in the Semis) due to COVID in 18 months shouldn't be using COVID as an excuse.
Maybe I believe not making Semis at an Event without NSW, Vic or ACT a failure and its alarming that you and others do not. High Performance isn't what it used to be it seems.

I am sure the boys who attended gave their all. I am sure the coaching staff did the best they could. But it wasn't enough and at this level if the State want to be one of the best again, excuses aren't good enough.

Butler you need to give this Metro boys team a dressing down, they are absolutely embarrassing to watch.

Butler!! Haha! His last Nationals coaching job he guided one of the best boys teams in SAs history to 8th!
Yes read that again, 8th PLACE.
BSA proceeded to reward him with the HP Mangers job!
He's exactly what’s wrong with the whole program
A bizzare little man masquerading as an expert
He isn’t dressing down anyone!

Butler runs around hiding behind his FIBA certificate, he's not a coaches bootlace
It used to be an honour and prestige to play for SA, now people are walking away en masse because of Butler and Alex Wright, that’s the truth.
The program is descending into irrelevance under his leadership.

That's a disgrace and heads should roll over that decision.
Alex Wrights results don’t stack up at club level, let alone state! Not to mention the amount of bad news that seems to surround him, where there’s smoke there’s fire, why don’t people want to play for you Alex?
His is like Scott Butler, unaccountable and untouchable because of his surname, BSA Boys club looks after them.

What do you mean by U16 players not wanting to play for a coach ?

Correct me if wrong

The boy's coach
Coach Alex

Recently selected by BA as a developing coach

Must be doing something right

Good on Country for beating a terrible metro team who just turned the ball over consistently and cant shoot. BSA HP program in general is below par and this just illustrates that Butler and his boys club are not up to it.

Objection you missed the multiple references to the Boys Club. BA have no idea about coaching talent in each state. The State HP Managers make the recommendations.

What's the go with Wright and under 16 Boys, he hasn’t moved from that age group and gender for years, thought coaches were meant to switch it up

Wa m women coach clearly bias.
Very clear all tournament. Could have won or come alot closer in a few games with a more even minutes distribution.
You could even here it on the commentary.

Scraping a win over wa country in the last game.

About 6-7 Aussie reps within nsw/vic/act both boys n girls.
Not many from this tournament will make the leap to next years crocs/sapphires u17s(06) or 2024 crocs/sapphires(07) imo.

Quite sure Qld South would disagree with you #673. I'd expect the Vic teams would have all struggled even if they attended given how much basketball they've missed.

Certainly vic/nsw/act could have lost but in the long run they would be filling the majority of n.t positions in 2022/23/24.

I don't see more than 1 top age 06 player making the WC next year.

The following sapphires, the 2024 wc, 1 certainty and maybe 3-4 07s are a possibility.

Bobongie is a chance for n,t next year imo.
other 2006 born players likely come out of nsw c or vic m.
Majority of the team will be 2005.

As someone from outside SA seeing the comments especially about the girls teams is crazy to me- they both won medals. Would they have been there if NSW and Vic were there who knows, maybe not, but you know what they did do beat the teams that they could beat that were at the tournament, which is all you can ask of them. Maybe trying being happy and proud of them.

Your SA country girls were an absolute pleasure to watch with definitely at least 1 star in the making there. For a completely undersized team they fought every second of every game, had huge desire, effort and hustle- something I wish some of my states teams would have. They also had 8 bottom agers which is huge to give them all experience at 16s ready to go again next year and I really hope they push to get up there again.

SAC girls played the best basketball of any SA team. Bright young coach by the looks. Should have a long career as a state coach.
