Our Nyah has found her sporting niche. BTW Nyah is the youngest of the team.
Is this the start of an exciting sporting career.
Twelve junior Geelong female basketball players have been selected to participate in the inaugural “Next Wave” program run by Supercats SEABL women’s head coach, Paul O’Brien.
The program is the first of its kind for girls in Geelong, targeting up and coming talented female basketball players and giving them the opportunity to train with and learn from elite level coaches.
Similar to the Aspiring Supercats Program, the male based training and development program run by Jamie O’Loughlin in Geelong for the past three years, the Next Wave program nominates and selects talented female athletes. The age group that the Next Wave Program is aimed at is slightly lower than the ASP, with Under 14 and under 16 girls being targeted in the inaugural selection process.
The Next Wave sessions will place a heavy focus on strength, fitness and conditioning, with SEABL Supercats women fitness coach Chelsey Cameron assisting Paul O’Brien with the program outline. One of the biggest strengths of the SEABL women’s team over the last two years has been their fast style of play, incorporating a lot of fitness training into their schedule.
The program begins this Sunday 3rd December and will run for three weeks before Christmas. In 2013, the participants will attend one hour and a half session over five weeks in Term 1 and the same over ten weeks in Term 2.
Congratulations to the players who have been selected to participate in the inaugural Next Wave program, and we look forward to watching your progress and development over the next six months and beyond!
