Sunshine Coast Basketball – GCC Eagles Basketball Report 2018:
Thank you GCC for your support with basketball in 2018.
Sunshine Coast school basketball competes on Friday nights during Term 3 and the beginning of Term 4. There were 180 teams across Sunshine Coast secondary schools participating.
With seven GCC teams competing on Friday nights in Term 3, it has been very hard to juggle training times and use of space. With the addition of the new undercover area on the oval, I am sure this will allow for fewer basketballs flying around before, during and after school in the old undercover area.
My approach this year was to develop a “club first” and “club feel” attitude. We began training towards the end of Term 2 on Monday afternoons and Tuesday mornings. These trainings continued right through Term 3 and into Term 4. There were some training sessions where I had 30 players attending. With the assistance of Mr Phil Andrews and Mr Mark James, we worked on a lot of individual offensive and defensive skills.
Overall, 51 students played basketball for the mighty GCC Eagles. With such rapid growth in basketball at GCC, I would expect there may be more afternoons and mornings in Term 3 next year taken up with training.

Given our recent heavy rainfall, SCISSA soccer has been slow to start. Going into round 3 only the Junior Boys B team have been able to take the field for a game. Unfortunately, this was a loss to Matthew Flinders Anglican College. There were some positive signs in round 4 with a win and two draws in games Vs ILC and St Andrews AC. In the Intermediate boys match this week the boys got off to a slow start before Jacob Barbeler and Bakani Kombanie took control in the midfield. Declan Martin was all class up front with a hat trick of goals and GCC ran out comfortable winners 3-1. The Intermediate girls seemed to control the game from the start and had a multitude of shots on goal with one attempt actually rebounding off the crossbar. They were unlucky to draw this one 0-0.
