Preface by Janx....
The first year of www.highperformancehoopsnetwork.com was an immense amount of effort. It has been a great ride, with many new friendships made, most importantly seeing the guys I have coached achieve the next step of their goals and it will be even more rewarding once they start playing and winning with their respective programs. The relationships with the featured athletes, their families, college coaches and the partners and supporters in this platform makes it worth the effort.
We’ve always known the why we do what we do but we are now determining the what (Blog: I have no idea "what" but I can tell you "why").
Now our platforms are in place, there is a high level of trust and credibility in our brand and platform, we are looking to get more efficient and share the load in what we do. We are not going to stop and seeking to diversify this platform further to include a greater level of support for our featured athletes whilst they are at college. To do this we simply need more volunteers, but only the right people. Joshua Lloyd is someone that we identified and vetted quite heavily before accepting him as a partner in this platform. He has not let us down. He is precise, efficient in his work, excellent knowledge on game analysis and breakdown and very good IT knowledge.
Josh recently attended the U16 Australian National Championships in Perth as a Scorebench Official (Stats). Blogs on national Championships (Blogs: Men's Rankings (PER) from U18 National Championships. By Paul Mesecke, Men's rankings from U20 National Championships. By Paul Mesecke, Our story and journey to become National Champions. By Scott Whitmore, The greatest collective talent at U18 Australian National Champs in history: Perth, Year 2012. By Andrew Jantke) are always very popular. We have decided not to provide any rankings from 16 Nationals but still thought it would be very interesting to provide commentary around the event. Josh’s perspective as an official will also gives us some different insights than we would otherwise have access to.
