Coaches report: Boys U15s SSSA Representatives
The one word that describes this team is “perseverance”. I’d like to thank the association for letting me coach this team. My staff who were fantastic. They made for a memorable and professional experience.
• Manager Marnia Whetu great Dugout Boss and SMS Queen
• Scorer Daniela Palma “The Truth” Districts convert brutal with The Red Pen
• Co Coach Mick Thorne partner in crime
• Assistant Coach Daniel Meyer Pitcher funny guy
• Assistant Coach Lachlan Daniel Catcher funny guy
The team consisted of half right for the age group and the rest of younger players. This weekend every boy played to their potential and the best I’ve ever seen any of them play before! For all of us club and rep who have had something to do with these guys it all came together at this tournament. First 2 games on the Saturday were against Penrith and Orange both games we gave them the wins via numerous errors. Mind you Penrith went on to contest the final and nearly all their runs we assisted with? Game 3 we came up against Newcastle who got away to a great start and chasing them down was too hard in the end.
Sunday we were bottom of our pool and according to the draw our only game. Yesterday the errors made were because we encouraged the players to make plays and take risks which didn’t come off? Well Sunday morning we switched it up giving everyone a go against Campbelltown. We were informed halfway through that we would play another game as the draw was incorrect?? We learnt our lessons from Saturday and beat Southern Districts as well. Both games we made no errors to win comfortably but still respecting the game and our opponents. Finishing 7th was not a good indicator of what had been achieved. Proud of the team and staff for a great tournament! Thanks to the parents for supporting us all weekend. PS. All clubs requested their players get a photograph so they can post it on Facebook. Richard says to the team he was the only one from RSL....... so as to not leave him out the coaches joined Richard in his personal Club shot? Hey
