I’m still returning back to earth after the news of how our athletes did over the last basketball season and how they were rewarded at the SBL awards evening. Personally, I couldn’t be more proud of what they achieved. The season they’ve all had (that were and weren’t awarded) has been amazing. And since then, …

  This is very exciting for me (Coach Connolly) because this guest blog post is by literally one of the best in the industry. Hand on heart, this woman is the real deal. She can’t even go on a holiday back to the US without NBA and MLB teams contacting her to talk shop. So …
