    Episode 53 - Gerard Hillier and Mental Health Solutions

    Week 1 of lockdown is sadly upon us, and coaches and players alike need to stay checked in with each other. We speak to Casey Hub Lead Coach, Gerard Hillier, about his time in the Australian Defence Force, managing PTSD, relating his time in the Army to his coaching, and some strategies for coaches to help cope in what is an odd time without basketball for most people. Would be great for coaches to reach out to other coaches within their network and help get through this time by checking in on each other. For those that are struggling, the best resources are:

    It was great to hear from our special guest this week, Blackburn Vikings alum, and Davidson College Wildcats Assistant Coach, James Janssen. James takes us through his pathway from VJBL player and coach, through to his current role within the college system. We get to hear some great insight as to what life is like for the college athletes, what the expectations are, but also some outstanding advice on how to choose the correct school – a great listen for all players and coaches.



    Just a reminder, get your submissions in for the podcast over the next couple of weeks, we need:

    Your name and your club;

    What you’re reading;

    What you’re watching;

    What you’re listening to;

    And what you’re doing for your own professional development

    We want coaches at all levels to be submitting their information to try and help out as many other coaches as possible. You can send this through to rob.coulter@basketballvictoria.com.au or via @RobCoulter on Twitter.

    Around The Grounds

    Around The Grounds

    Lockdown life is well and truly set in for the Victorians at the moment, but we’ve got your resources covered. We check in with all the High Performance Coaches to find out a few things, what they’re reading, what they’re watching, what they’re listening to, and what professional development they’re working on whilst we wait to get back on court.

     

    We do need our listeners to help out the coaches in podcast land, and this is your chance to appear on the Talking Split podcast. All we need from you is an audio recording of:

    What are you reading

    What are you watching

    What are you listening to

    What professional development are you doing right now

     

    We will collate all these and play as many as we can on the podcast in a couple of weeks time to give as many coaches as many resources as we can. All submissions need to be in by Monday 27th July and can be sent to Rob.Coulter@BasketballVictoria.com.au (mailto:Rob.Coulter@BasketballVictoria.com.au) or via the DM’s on Twitter. If it’s easier for anyone, I’m happy to jump on a Zoom and take the recording that way. Anyone that appears on the podcast will receive a small gift courtesy of the Talking Split fairies – don’t get your hopes up though, this isn’t Oprah…

    Great to have the Sydney Uni Flames Head Coach, Katrina Hibbert, on the podcast this week to discuss her coaching journey. A graduate of LSU and having played in the WNBA and WNBL, we look at how she made the transition into coaching from playing, how teaching has helped her coaching, what she’s learned, and what she is continuing to try and learn in her coaching career.

    Obviously a bit of bad news this week with the cancelling of the news of another 6 week lockdown in Victoria and VJBL and Big V seasons cancelled. Please make sure everyone continues to check in with the players and fellow coaches and we all get through this in as best shape as we can.

    Adaptive Finishing

    The “Missing” milk cartons have paid off, and Coops is in for the podcast this week! 

    Following on from the shooting podcast a couple of weeks back, we follow up with adaptive finishing and finishing around the basket. Who uses it the best, why do the players need to have it in their toolkit (not toolbag as Zoe refers to it), and how do we teach it to get the maximum amount of transfer from our athletes into the game.

Great conversational pod that is a terrific resource for coaches. Broad range of guests covering a side sphere of topics to help the youth coach.
Thanks to Basketball Victoria for continuing to invest in the pod and all the coaches who support as guests and contributors.
