Southern Districts 2013 Junior Representative Coaching Staff
The 2013 season is looking great and may even surpass the past two years, in achievements, where the junior Spartans have won the Vince Hickey Award for being Queensland’s most successful junior program.
Southern Districts Basketball Association has dominated the junior age groups in Queensland in recent years and always looks to have the best coaching staff possible. The 2013 staff will be no exception.
“As the main feeder program to the Carina Leagues Club Lady Spartans and the Clem Jones Centre Brisbane Spartans, which both compete in Australia’s premier winter basketball league the South East Australian Basketball League, we must ensure our juniors are the best” offered Allan Ladewig, SDBAL General Manager.
“We have, I believe, Queensland’s best developers of basketball players in the likes of Steve Lennon, Lavinia Taylor, Tony Stephens, Ray Axam and Rob Scheibner and this year they are to be joined by experienced senior male coaches Vern Robateau, Michael Vandongen and Danny Page. Add to this Mary McKenna, one of the greatest basics teachers in our sport and Nathan Drakopoulos we can only improve. All this under the eye of Dean Brebner, our new Development Director. Things could not be looking better”.
Trials for the representative teams will start after the school holidays end and will be posted on the website www.sdspartans.basketball.net.au
In 2013 the Spartans are looking to field a record 22 teams within the Basketball Queensland organised competitions which run from September until March 2013 where teams then nominate for the State Championships over Easter and May Day.
