Basketball Update

Veteran’s basketball lasted all of one week. I woke up the following day with a sore left knee, and a trip to By Design Holistic Health to get the news that I had damaged my medial collateral ligament (MCL) and my posterior cruciate ligament (PCL)! It’s been a bit of a struggle to get my strength back, but mostly because it’s been so busy that I haven’t taken the time to do my exercises!

The U10 Girls have also had a fairly rough time of it since moving up to B Grade. There has been some great work, but it’s hard not to get demoralised when the opposition is a fair bit better and more experienced.

2015 will be a better year!


Veteran’s Basketball

My mum aged several years when I broke it to her that her baby son was playing in a veterans basketball team!

The team was running short of players, I need something to help me stayget fit, and it will help me with my coaching and credibility if I’m in the trenches playing the game as well as coaching.

It’s a fun match, the guys don’t train but we get out there and have some fun. There was plenty of tips for me which was great as it’s been 15 or so years since I’ve played.

Interestingly the jersey I was thrown was number 7, which was my number when I played back in primary school (Winter 1980 Premiers!!!)

The results were about 32-20 down, but some of the guys reckon we should have beaten them, and there are plenty of better and taller teams in the competition. Yikes.
