ON THE BENCH: MITCHELL STOOP
The Corio Bay Basketball Association has never been so well represented at the Country Victorian level, with Mitch Stoop joining Dan Coles, Mitchell Pendergast and Joel Anderson on the sidelines. This was Stoop's first time at the Country Victoria level, serving as an assistant coach for the Country Victoria Bushrangers at the Southern Cross Challenges.
"Southern Cross Challenge was one of the most informative experiences," Stoop said. "From coaches to players to parents. There is no grey areas, everyone is working towards the same goal. It's amazing to see what culture Victoria Country has built."
Stoop has lead his teams to success over the past few years, having won a VJBL title in 2015 and finals in 2016. In 2017, the Under 16 Boys finished second in the Country Victoria Division 2 State Championships. But like all good coaches, Stoop has learnt from his time with the State's best. "Personally I took a lot of new verbal cues that work better with children and learning how to adapt to in game situations better," Stoop said. " If your a new and striving coach I would highly recommend this tournament because I guarantee you will learn a lot."
The CBBA would like to congratulate Mitch on his accomplishments and wish him the best with the upcoming season.
