Coach Cabral is one of our most passionate and hard working coaches. Cabral played at the College level in Canada and has over 15 years of coaching experience.
On the EBL courts, he is often working as hard as his players during training. He gives everything he has each session
Cabral’s teams have had successful competitions in the under 14s all the way to the under 8s. Cabral has a wealth of coaching knowledge and he takes pride in ensuring all of his players’ development.
There aren’t many coaches who can lead our “Learn to Play “program one hour and then help our under 16s boys understand the details of our motion offence the next, but Cabral loves all aspects o coaching. He is a maestro in the post, helping our junior players learn positioning and footwork from the block.
Cabral has been our coach of the month on a number of occasions and is one of our senior coaches at EBL.
Coach Daniel has come through the EBL coaching system and is one of our most popular coaches.
Our coach of the month in February 2020, he has a passion for coaching and helping children learn. He is a positive role model for his team, making an impact on his players’ development on and off the court.
Daniel reached the NSW State finals as a high school player and continues to develop his own game in our EBL adults competitions.
He considers his best coaching moment as helping the under 18s Bondi Lions Jazz to their league championship last year.
His most repeated phrase on the court "You don’t need to know all the answers, just work hard, ask questions and enjoy the learning experience."
