The Basin Wildcats

How long have you been coaching?

Two weeks

Team you coach this season?

U12 CR Girls

Why do you coach and what do you love about it?

I care for 5 children who all play basketball for The Wildcats. I’ve been a team manager for the last 6 years so I thought this year I’ll step up and take on a coaching role as two of our eldest children also coach. I love the passion the kids have and the team environment. I also love the Wildcats Club, they are amazing!!

Favourite Coaching Memory?

My first game, nervous and excited. Seeing two girls who have never played before come off the court with huge smiles on their faces even though we lost.

What do you say to your team the most while coaching?

Have fun, own the ball and play fair.
