New South Coach?

One of these to coach South. Don Shipway my contact says he turned it down....unsure, Scott Ninnis may return but possibly he has turned it down, Al Green not yet confirmed as West coach. Sapwell is the dark horse!

Hodgy, my advice to the club would to be as thorough as possible. I know little about South and couldn't comment about the quality of applicants within the club. When these opportunities arise you might as well cast as a greater net as possible to find a coach. It seems to me you have 4 choices:

Promote a current South Coach eg Green, Manning

Recruit a former ABL/State League coach from another Club - eg Pricthard, Ryan, Spear

Recruit a current Ass Coach from another club - eg Castle, Grocke

Recruit a credentialled junior coach from another club - eg Butler, Arnott, Rigoni, Leaver, Combe, Bennett etc the list goes on.

Neil Gliddon is one person worth speaking to get an opinion on oustside applicants.

In the end the club might still opt for a "South" person, but they should do themselves a favour and look around.

Like I said - talk of players leaving is just that - lets see what happens eh?
As for the Men's Coach - you'd be surprised at the names on the interview list so far - and none were approached - they all approached the Club.
Just shows exactly how much all you so called "experts" don't know.
As for getting personal again, the South Junior Coaches that have been named have already forgotten more about basketball than most of you will ever learn in a lifetime.

The club will be advertising tomorrow in the advertiser to see if there are other coaches interested with reputable ability who have not already contacted us just to make sure we leave no stone unturned.(One of my many suggestions at the committee meeting on Monday night)

The future is governed by the work that gets done today. Thats our companies saying. No quick fix but wheh my brother was involved there was a American named Clay and there used to be a sign saying that this one season South had 14 or 15 or so junior teams in the grand finals and I know that Don and Clay had this program of teaching the coaches and the players. I cant find the booklet he was given but obviously educating the coaches would be one thing that would need to be done. I belive he is coaching a junior boys team and you would think it be mandatory for coaches to go to the practices that he runs because I think he is only coaching for one season. Al runs his camps in December so he obviously is good with juniors. Between the two coaches you would think South would want to try to tap their experience. I am only in Adelaide evry few months so I just get to hear in around about way what is happening so maybe they are already doing that but coaching the coaches would be no 1 on the list as it probably is at all clubs.

Without taking the focus off South, my mail is that there are quite a few players currently at other clubs who are leaving - including the top five clubs.
Guess it isn't all peaches and cream at the Clubs who did well last season!
On the issue of Al to West - not happening - he is in the mix but not the top 3. On the issue of players leaving South -it might be good to search out who might be going to South.
Before you all get hot and sweaty responding - check out the proposed recruit rule being discussed by the Clubs to run in conjuction with the proposed salary cap - expensive imports and mass exits from Clubs might just be part of history this season.

Why would you look any further than Manning?

Assistant to Don Shipway in a championship year.

Coached and established the line-up of the U/22 Bankstown team that went on to win the Sydney metro championship.

Assistant to Kubank in '02.

Has an intimate knowledge of South dating back 18 years.

Arguably one of the best readers of a basketball game around.

Can easily retain all of the South Men, has the respect of the group (as opposed to recent coaches) and can add players to the list from other clubs.

They should lock him in before another club does and South are left to see another of their coaches excel at a rival club.

Giamo, Mannings's credentials are certainly impressive and he could no doubt successfully coach this group. However from a total club perspective the best thing might be to bring someone from outside, keep Manning involved with the juniors. With the addition of Shipway in the space of a month they would have gone from 1 outstanding coach in the boys program to three. Using these three to work with the other coaches, this could then balloon to 6 or 7 quality junior coaches in the following 12 months. The clubs 12/14/16 all made the finals so there is definitely talent in the junior ranks. Me thinks the appointment of the Senior coach is critical not just for the ABA program, but the entire boys side of the club.

If South can get Manning at U/16's and Shipway at U/14's in their Junior program they'll have a great base to start from. If they get a good young coach in u/12's who is willing to ask advice and listen to those two then even better.

But they need a kick in the Girls program. Crump at U/18s? Had 1 State player and two reserves this season and managed to finish second last. I guess if he gives his daughter enough opportunity to make state this year he won't care where they finish. Jason Brown at U/16's or U/14's. Sure, to some, it looks like he has passion, but competance and youthful enthusiasm are two different things. And Beamsy, well, lets hope he spends more time communicating with his players than yelling at Ref's, the opposition and everybody else.

Commitment as no issue for Manning - probably one of his defining character traits.

(PM stands for Prime Minister - DH)

The key to a successful mens program (apart for junior development) is to go back to the early 90's when players would bust their ass just for spot in reserves!

The previous coach didn't give a toss about it and therefore neither did the 18's or 20's.

It is exactly where the young guys get their first taste of the MENS ball and also where your 8/9/10 guys in the ABA team get the court time - How are you low minutes beach guys supposed to improve if they don't get game time in reserves. - Training can only do so much, you learn skills & theory at training, knowing the game comes for minutes played.

In 90 - 92' the South reserves team could have happily competed with many other clubs MENS teams!

Assuming that Kelly Manning does apply for the ABL Job, would it be better for South for him to remain in the Junior Program as U18 Coach and assisting the new U12 Coach (with Don's assistance and guidance)and trying to get the Junior program up to speed with the other 2 inner South Clubs or would he of more immediate benefit to the ABL Program?

Tough call for those making the decision on a new ABL Coach. Thats why they get paid ZERO DOLLARS, I guess.

Having had a couple of brief discussions with Kelly, his passion and commitment are unquestioned, but where is this best directed, Junior or ABL.
I assume that it would be too difficult to handle both, or be expected to, although I do remember Michael Jobbing(?) doing both for Norwood a couple of years ago.
Is it possible with the right support to be able to handle both, it would mean I assume having the U18/1's training with the ABL Men, something that has not happened at South (for at least the last 4 years that I know of anyway)

So the club shouldn't advertise, what if say Steve Breheny decides he wants to Coach an ABL side in 2005, or Paul Rees wants to move into a Playing Coach role, or even David Cooper.

Don't get me wrong, Its not that I don't want Al as the ABL Coach, but I also believe the Club has a responsibility to all Members, to see who is out there that maybe interested.

Provided the club makes a swift decision and do not let too much time pass, then advertising at this late a stage is not a bad one. I think both Al and Kelly would make a good choice to coach so I do not think the club will lose out if the go for either coach.

I would imagine that whatever process south used here would be criticized. You can't please all the people all the time, but it does seem a thorough process with the time given.

Just a few quick comments as SABC Club President.
The Committee was UNANIMOUS in its decision to advertise the position for the Men's ABL Coach. Not a decision of a Committee racked by in-fighting etc as falsely claimed earlier this week. As a consequence we have received responses from qualified and experienced Coaches currently outside the Club in addition to the ones identified from within the Club. We have also consulted with ALL the SABC ABL men from the season just past and ALL have provided positive and constructive input.
Regrettably, despite my previous invitations to do so (as June Mac also did this week), my phone has not rung hot with calls from any of the critics that post on this site even though I have adopted an 'open door' philosophy since my appointment as President last year, and will continue to do so.
I anticipate announcing the new coaching appointment for the Men's ABL side on Tuesday 21 September.
In the mean time, congratulations to Tracey Braithwaite on back to back championships following her 18 girls win tonight and to Matt Warren for a similar result with his 20 boys.
Good luck to the remaining South teams playing in grand finals tomorrow morning.

Brian congratulations on your positive response to the 'snipers' out there. To have not advertised the position of Coach would have been negligent. However considering you advertised the position on Thursday the 16th of September and you plan on announcing the coaches appointment this Tuesday it would appear that advertising the postion was a waste of time. Obviously you have candidate you feel is outstanding and i am sure he/she is. What is the rush? Why not take a couple of weeks. Source out the best possible person for the job. Good luck

corret me if I'm wrong,I don't re call the womens coaching job being advertised when al was asked to coach them?? and are you saying al's coaching record is not good enough against kellys? and if you had taken notice of the positive input from the
snr;team which you did get weeks ago,
scanlons contract should have been torn up there and then,and al asked to do the men's all in house and we could have been in training with a team by now NO BRAINER!oh sure take a few more weeks,al's got nothing to
lose south is the loser 4 not signing

Somebody correct me but was there an announcement to who the south abl coach is.
South just cant win with jerks like "mole" who like to bring up past decisions all the time, have you ever heard of learning and changing and evolving.Al was appointed womens coach over 4 years ago by a completely different committee,so are we to hold this committee responsible for the approach of that appointment.
To all the "Al" worshipers out there if you scratch Al, he bleeds just like everyone else despite his over size ego,and he certainly has feet of clay.Can he save South,I dont think so, as he has ample opportunity to show his prowess as a saviour for over 4yrs and done zip.And if you all want to show examples of what he has done besides spent money on players who have come and gone feel free, in fact someone start a whole new thread title"How Al's Improved South Adelaide over The Years"
I vote Kel's as the new white saviour of South Adelaide

it seems our non/learned freddy has a problem, and not only with his recall of the womens team success in the last 3 seasons,we draw attention
to the advertiseing at a late date because it was not done before and question even now,and has far has al having an ego,even though he's entitled to have one after winning all that NBL can offer,we say again kelly just doesn't come near,the facts/stats speak 4 them self,freddy
u can vote 4 whoever,

Those that suggested that Robbo (Paul Robinson) could be a likely candidate for ABL coach, heres some news for you.
In fact he sucessfully coached the u16 div 1 side in the 2004/2005 season and after this stint he has moved onto NORTH ADELAIDE to take up assistant coaching in the senior mens league.
He will be remembered at South for years to come for his commitment and effort! His appointment to North is a credit to his coaching skills.
Well done Robbo
