Basketball

The Basketball high performance program is the newest of the Darling Range Sports College programs. The College has created a program aligned with the requirements of Basketball WA’s high performance programs.

What does the program entail?

The Basketball program will run in 2018 for Year 7 students only and will continue on through the years as that year group move upwards. The program will consist of:

  • Basketball specific fitness (monitored by The Screening Lab which is an online injury prevention tool)
  • Skill development
  • Game play
  • Sport Science which will educate the students on nutrition, biomechanics, psychology, coaching and exercise physiology
  • Sport Science leads in to Physical Education studies in Year 11 and 12.
  • Opportunities to tour interstate and International

Who is the Coach?

Alan Black

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Alan Black, Australian Boomers Assistant Coach and NBL Championship Coach will be joining the Darling Range Sports College coaching team in 2018.

Alan brings with him a wealth of playing and coaching experience in national and international basketball. This has come from his time as a player and Head Coach with the Perth Wildcats where he won a championship in the 1999/2000 season.  He was Head Coach of the Illawarra Hawks, Sydney Kings and the Malaysian Institute of Sport where in 2017, they won a gold medal in the South East Asian games.

Throughout his time as Head Coach, he was also the Australian Boomers Assistant Coach for the 1996 and 2000 Olympic Games.

Alan is also a qualified school teacher and will be combining his basketball coaching with some time in the classroom teaching our Sport Science classes.  His experience from working at the Institute of Sport is a valuable asset to the course.

Alan is a great addition to our already impressive state and nationally recognised suite of coaches and he is looking forward to putting together a strong foundation for a successful high performance program at Darling Range Sports College.
